DIVA- Divinely Inspired Victoriously Aware. Last month I was back on the west coast in Los Angeles! This was an exciting event to shoot. I had the honor of shooting the highlight video for an AIDS awareness and fund raising event called Divas Simply Singing. And it’s just that! Diva’s simply singing. It was held at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. In a nutshell, various artists are invited to volunteer their time to perform a benefit concert in order to raise awareness for aids. As most Hollywood events go, we started on the red carpet by talking to different people in the entertainment business about what the cause means to them. Followed by some great entertainment from some of the best in Hollywood, including Jennifer Holiday, Johnny Manuel, Jennifer Lewis. Actress, Sheryl Lee Ralph is the brains behind all of it. She’s been doing these annual events for almost 30 years! That’s commitment 😉 So huge thanks to Sheryl and her team for having me out! It was a great weekend full of good food, beautiful weather, and expensive gas. Gotta love it. Can’t wait to shoot the next one! Check out the video and some photos from the weekend!
Points Of interest: 1. If you have some free time, take a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway. Roll down your windows, and enjoy the fresh air. There are plenty of places to stop and park for free. The beaches are pretty clear in the winter, and you can still watch the surfers and take a walk
2. If you’re into Asian food, there is a great ramen place close to Beverly Hills called Tatsu Ramen. The nice thing about this place is that it’s open super late. 2am I think. I went there after our event was over around midnight and it was great. the lines can get long though, even at midnight. But it was the best ramen I’ve ever had. Well worth it.
