LUE PRODUCTIONS ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Speaker Junkiez

Speaker JunkiezHow’s it going Inland Empire! This week I would like to feature one of the most talented groups in the Inland Empire, Hip Hop artist Speaker Junkiez. Are you looking for a Turn UP group?  Then look no further. Allow me to introduce “Speaker Junkiez”, one of the BEST Hip-Hop groups in the Inland Empire. From their colorful and unique style, to their catchy lyrics, original beats, and dance moves, they’re always GUARANTEED to get the crowd up on their feet!

With the God given talent of vocals and lyrics they’ve been blessed with, Barbra Martin, also known as Dada Doe, and Nash Collins the III, also known as Big Chew, they became one forming the group known as, “Speaker Junkiez ”. Under management by LUE Productions, the group has been performing all over Southern California.

Both Dada Doe and Big Chew were born in San Bernardino California, where they found their love of music at a young age. Growing up in the streets of San Bernardino with little promise for the future both turned to the ARTS as a way to express their inner self. Holding each other down through good and bad times while making the best out of the worst situation, these two were still able to produce quality music.

The group just released their first video ever for their song “Let’s Party”. Come out and watch them perform it live for LUE Productions/Family First Entertainment Annual Urban Hip-Hop and R&B Fashion Show this Sunday located at 114 S. Arrowhead Avenue in San Bernardino (92408) from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. You can view it on YouTube as well. They are also currently working on their EP and building their fan base, and are looking forward to touring and performing all over the world. With God by their side, this group is truly on the RISE!

Celebrating Women Who Have Mother-like Traits

Interview and write-up by Naomi K. Bonman

Mother’s Day is not just about celebrating women who are biological mothers, but it is also about celebrating those women who possess motherly traits. You do not have to be a mother to be recognized on Mother’s Day. There are several women out there who are role models for youth and other young women that do not have any biological children of their own, but they care about leading others in the right direction and making their lives better through their careers and passions.

Dr. Misee Harris is one of those women who can be classified as phenomenal.  She is a model, philanthropist and nationally recognized leader in the realm of pediatric and sports dentistry, as well as in the advocacy for children with developmental disabilities. Dr. Harris graduated with honors from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2006. She then went on to attend the University Of Kentucky College Of Dentistry where she earned a Doctorate of Dental Medicine Degree. Upon receiving that degree, she became the first African American woman to be accepted into the University of Kentucky Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program.

The successful demist has definitely been making power moves in her medical career. In addition to medicine, she is also an aspiring actress who has sought out to change the perception of how minorities are viewed in entertainment. In 2013, Dr. Harris launched a social media

campaign to become America’s first African American Bachelorette after she opted out of season 9 of The Bachelor upon realizing that she was only cast on the show to fill a quota for the African American woman who would get voted out in the first round. Her social media campaign received great feedback, “I had no idea that it would go viral. It showed that America wanted to see minorities on the show and for thing to be mixed up, especially with interracial dating being popular. It would bring in a new audience,” Harris stated.

Since then Harris has been busy taping anew reality show called “On The Rise” that features three professional Black women as they go about their everyday lives and chronicles events that take place on a daily basis. The stars are Misee Harris, a pediatric dentist, model and actress from Columbia, Tn.; Fawn Stone, an inspiring actress from Los Angeles, Ca.; and Lakesha Yvette Walker, a screenwriter from Graceville, Fl. “On The Rise” will be a “down to earth” reality show that will allow viewers an inside peek into what these three busy women deal with in their professional careers and private lives during their downtime at home. It is not your ordinary reality television show. “On The Rise” is currently filming and set to debut sometime this year.

“African American woman are showed in a negative light,” Harris explains. “We want to show the ones who have goals. Since the early 2000’s and the hit show ‘Girlfriends’, there haven’t been as many shows that portray [us] in a positive light.”

In addition to her reality series, Dr. Harris has made it through several rounds of casting for ABC‘s reality show “Shark Tank” and is now waiting to see if she will make the final cut. If so, she will be presenting her newly designed and customized ProFit Athletic Mouth Guards.
