The Syncopated Ladies performed at the ESSENCE FESTIVAL in New Orleans!! #GirlsTrip This trip became extra special when they met Derick and his brothers. Hilary Swank, sent a video of 10 year old Derrick dancing on Bourbon street in New Orleans. Chloe Arnold posted the video, and the viral community helped find him. When the Syncopated Ladies touched down in New Orleans, pre-performance, they went to meet Derrick and his brothers. They danced together in the streets, bonded by rhythm, and the understanding of what it's like to grow up in the inner city with limited resources. Chloe and Maud invited the boys along with the Syncopated Ladies for a VIP experience at the Essence Festival. This was their first time attending the festival. It was a very hopeful and heartfelt day, connecting to these young boys. We see our story in theirs and are determined to mentor their journey and create opportunities. These kids are our motivation! Connect, elevate, inspire, and share!
We are so thankful to AT&T and Aizehi Nomo for the opportunity to come to NOLA! Teamwork makes the dream work, and I left with a full heart 💛
We also got to see our friend, Dee 1, in his hometown! He is one of the most beautiful, spirited people in the world, and an amazing rapper!!
