GRAMMY Weekend in LA was filled with what we coin as the Soul Diaspora Movement. Pre-Grammy Events like Sounds of Change with Jerry Lee Lewis, Chrisette Michele, Musiq Soulchild (perfecting Bob Marley), Ryan Shaw, DJ Hapa and others celebrated the Music Preservation Project and Living Histories event based on the music for social change and the Civil Rights Movement.
Friday night Kiss N’ Grind Live put on by Garth Trinidad and GRAMMY nominee Vikter Duplaix featured The Brand New Heavies, Caron Wheeler of Soul II Soul, Eric Roberson and DJ Rashida, a great musical journey!
