these are crazy. haaa.
enjoy. . .
so i always knew of Ryan Leslie & his writing skills. but this past year in september i performed with Keri Hilson at this PEPSI VMA after-party out here in LA & Ryan Leslie was also performing. at soundcheck he was doing his set & i INSTANTLY BECAME A FAN.
this guy is crazy. his stage presence is out of this world. he is so captivating, so entertaining. loved it from start to finish.
so then i came across this on youtube of him creating a track. . .
please just watch how he works. i looooovvve artists who just spit out music everywhere. it just flows through every inch.
well that`s my take on from what i see.
just a thought that had crossed my mind. wondering if it could be real.
what is it that you feel at a point like that?
how do you know?
& maybe not at first SIGHT; but possibly at first interaction?!? who knows.
what do you think?
what an extremely amazing day in the history of our country & even in our world.
i am truly speechless. to look back & reminisce on how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a DREAM & a vision on how he see`s CHANGE coming. . . predicted that 40 years later we would embrace a BLACK PRESIDENT & look at what we got 40 years later to date.
BARACK OBAMA! C H A N G E ! ! ! ! !
woooowwww. . . chills. i have chills. how beautiful is this CHANGE?!? this EXCELLENCE?!?
dreams no longer have to stay dreams.
we can achieve & accomplish whatever it is we choose & please. GOD IS GOOD;
& dedication & faith gets you far. so happy to be able to live to see this moment in our history.
welcome to office Mr. President. yeeeeeeeeee.
these 2 pictures i took *which i know i wasn`t supposed to lol. sneaky pics!! ahah* really had an affect on me. i started crying
*which isn`t too rare lol; i`m pretty emotional*
anyhow. i am going to write captions under each one about what i took from them & how it really showed me just how incredible God is even through the STORM.
- - > this one here basically shows
how high up the water flooded this particular room. all those dark spots is the water stains on the walls. BUT what i thought was so incredible was how the wallpaper is NOAH`S ARK & notice how the water marks stop right under the pictures of the ARK. like it was sitting on top of the water just like it was supposed to.
- - > this one shows a room where everything got ruined & destroyed. YET the 2 things that remained were paintings on the wall. 1 of which was the LAST SUPPER & the other one, i believe was a BIBLE VERSE. wow.
BUT; she deserves all the play cuz she was real serious about this one.
check. . .
i want to state that KERI HILSON IS THE MOST UNDER-RATED female artist out right now. i mean come on america, why?
she writes, she can produce, work pro-tools alone, arrange vocals, mix songs, work the computers, & SING. i`ve been around the woman first hand & she is a creator. her ideas flow from inside her own soul; in every way.
tisk tisk. i don`t know why labels are just so unproductive now-a-days. but all i know is something has to change. i just say all this to say. . . TELL A FRIEND TO TELL A FRIEND about Ms. Keri Hilson. her album should be released really soon & i personally insist that EVERYONE go out & BUY a copy or two. look her up if you don`t know who she is & start spreading the word.
i`m posting her 3 singles so you can watch them. ohhh & i`m in the last one. ahahah. she allowed me to make a little cameo. hollerrr..

dancers in LA are just A LOT. they are a certain kind of person. it`s like a mini community. don`t get me wrong i have a few dancer friends out here who i love dearly but today i decided to go along to an audition with my good friend alvedo.
[ he is from seattle too, we grew up together ]
anyhow. . . what an experience i had in there today. aahahahahahahahha. i wish i had a video camera. this post might make a lot of people mad - that is not the intention -
i promise - - - > BUT
lol. sheesh. it`s kinda scary how they do the whole process. they throw everyone in the room like a herd of cattle & don`t even give them a second to breathe. it`s like OK GO! & start teaching them the dances. people were in there jumping on poles just to see. i guess i have a new found respect for them at the end of the day because i would NEVER be able to do it like that. it was HELLA HOT IN THERE TOO. i felt like i was in miami with all the humidity.
OH BUT THEN. . . i believe i got hit on by a man named aka "Bliss" ?!? wierd? ahah. . . who definitely didn`t like females, which i have nothing wrong with at all, but he clearly hit on me. & i did`t know how to feel at that exact moment but it was kinda awkard to say the least. ahahh.
fun times. BUT alvedo made the next round so I PRAY HE GETS THAT GIG. it`s a good look.
& she paints!
she is like a secret weapon i must say. there`s so much talent in that body she has & her mind is such a vessel. she has recently really inspired me to want to begin to read more as well as paint. just to have an outlet for my emotions & my thoughts. to creatively express. i will share when i do, but first . . .
for someone who is an amateur & does it just
for fun with canvas` from MICHAELS
she is brilliant in my eyes. . . here are a few pieces. when she does more i will share. in fact this weekend we will paint together!
I WANT A BLACKBERRY STORM!
at the moment i have a sidekick & a blackberry curve.
but i would gladly give them both up for the chance to dance around & play with a blackberry storm. oh t-mobile. smh.
Well Well Well. . .
shall i introduce myself to you world?
- - - > i shall.
my name is, as many know me. . . Leah LaBelle.
i am 22 years young & i am experiencing life.
i have lately been searching for something deeper to feed my soul & my mind.
i am an artist. a musician. a writer. a soul who is simply living in the presence of the body God blessed me with.
i found that recently i haven`t been inspired the way i know i should be.
i have a brilliant friend who first showed me the world of blogging in her incredible conquest for more, so i then decided to look a little deeper into it.
we all know Kanye West & his superb blogs, but i have also grown to LOVE the miss Solange Knowles & hers as well.
she reminds me much of myself as a young artist molding herself into a strong woman.
WITH THAT SAID . . . . . i started this to become more inspired. to start looking at the world & all that`s in it in a different light. to then share & enjoy it. giving myself a source to let go - to escape - a canvas for my experiences :-) i need my passion back.
in this journey i will include you in much of what i see & things that excite me, that i may hate, make me laugh, cry, music, fashion, so much. . .
here & there i will also post some of the video`s i do on youtube to update you & please feel free to to check them all out at. . . www.youtube.com/misslabelle1
tell a friend to tell a friend ;-)
WELCOME ON THIS JOURNEY DOWN DISCOVERY. come on.
. if you wish to experience the blogs i mentioned feel free!
