videos: RIP Gil Scott-Heron - a chicago original

i had to share these videos. still in shock at the loss.
my parents - i thank them for introducing me to his music. just another way they taught us kids about Black history and kept us informed on community issues and current events.

Jennifer Hudson in Australia

anyone that knows me knows that i LOVE Jennifer Hudson not only for her vocal talent but also because she's a SouthSider and comes from a neighborhood, Englewood, not too far (1 1/2 miles) from mine in Chicago. check her on the popular Australian chat show - the 7pm project and singing + Q&A in her hotel room in Sydney.
