Last week, GFM was in the house for TAU Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, fraternity member Shaquille O’Neal and High Aspirations Foundation, Inc., a 501c3 foundation that focuses on efforts to retrieve grants and other monetary contributions to provide scholarships for graduating high school seniors and undergraduate students, for their annual Spring Scholarship Extravaganza with special guests Avery Sunshine and Tank.  First on the stage with a spirited smile and equally radiant performance was our beloved soultress, singer/songwriter, Avery *Sunshine. From her apologetic love song, “Ugly Part of Me” to her sassy rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Jump to It”, the audience was left amazed by her “sistah girl” charm and incredible vocal talent. But as the night drew closer, women swarmed the front of the stage just to get close to their R&B headliner, Tank.  With extended hands and excited screams, Tank made sure to deliver his customary form of female stimulation with songs like “Slowly” and “Celebration”, yet by the same token, an intimate feel with songs like “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and “Please Don’t Go” played tenderly on the piano.  If you didn’t catch this show, we made sure to capture some of the pictorial highlights from the event.
