1944. World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once — one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin “Easy” Julian (Nate Parker) and his black pilots back at base — leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills — while their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. Until now.
As the war in Europe continues to take its dire toll on Allied forces, Pentagon brass has no recourse but to reconsider these under-utilized pilots for combat duty. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, Col. A.J. Bullard (Terrence Howard) awards them the ultimate chance to prove their mettle high above. Undaunted by the prospect of providing safe escort to bombers in broad daylight — a mission so dangerous that the RAF has refused it and the white fighter groups have sustained substantial losses — Easy’s pilots at last join the fiery aerial fray. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies in a heroic endeavor to combat the enemy — and the discrimination that has kept them down for so long.
Now I want you to think back, it’s 1986, (I know some of you were just born, but bear with me). Bobby Brown has just left one of the most successful male R/B groups of it’s time, and he drops his first single from his first solo project: KING OF THE STAGE. The song is called GIRLFRIEND, and for all of us who loved the r/b crooner (gap teeth and all) he couldn’t have picked a better title for his first song. I remember I just got a brand new all red boom box for Christmas, and laying beside it was the brand new Bobby Brown album. I ripped the plastic from that cassette tape, and played that song at least 1K times. So on this Flashback Friday, take a trip back with me, you know when R/B was real! Enjoy (I found the original video..a quality not great but good enough for you to smile at the memories the song holds). Read the rest of this entry »

Okay let’s be clear, Brooke Taylor, is the business! Every since I came across her new album: L.O.V.E. (LIVE ON VIRTUOUS ENERGY), I’ve been hooked on her music. The first thing I can say is the music you hear from Brooke is as genuine as her spirit. The 4th generation Japanese/American grew up in Los Angeles listening to Motown and soul music, and you can definitely hear it in her music. Check out her brand new video, for the first single off of her new album, Dear Archer. Be on the look out for our 1 on 1 interview!
