The Black Girls Rock! and Soul Tour presented by Chevrolet was held Thursday at SOB in New York City. General Motors executives Jocelyn Allen, Nina Price and Brook Ellis presented a $25,000 donation to Founder and CEO of Black Girls Rock! Beverly Bond. The Shot Callers Dinner presented by Target was held on Friday at the Vermillion Restaurant, and the Black Girls Rock! 2011 taping for BET was held Saturday night at the Paradise Theater in the Bronx. Political Activist and Scholar Angela Davis was among the honorees.


Since we’re chatting about Black Girls Rock!, honoree Tatyana Ali looked positively radiant at the awards in a cream and multi-colored gown and diamonds from Philip Press and Prive Jewellery. The Love That Girl/The Young and the Restless star wore rose and white gold Flame earrings, and a rose gold and diamond ring and bangle by Philip Press, along with a rose gold and diamond ring from Prive Jewellery’s Koral Collection.


Big fun was had by all as Great Women in Music celebrated Shirley Scott for her long standing contribution to business and community at Creole Supper Club in East Harlem, New York. A proclamation from Cong. Charles Rangel cited October 3, 2011 “now and hereafter” as Shirley Scott Day. She also received an official letter from Senator Bill Perkins, who was in attendance, and a citation from the office of New York City Council Member Inez Dickens. LEG Records R&B Powerhouse Natasha C. Coward presented Scott with a check from her record release fundraiser for Cancer Awareness. The stellar night was co-sponsored by Healthfirst, Moet-Hennessy USA and Black Opal cosmetics.


Crooner Ne-Yo and his girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, welcomed their second child last week, a six pounds, 10 ounce baby boy named Mason Evan Smith. The couple has a 1-year-old daughter, Madison Chase Smith. Congratulations.


According to sources, singer Keyshia Cole Gibson celebrated her 30th birthday with her hubby, Cleveland Cavalier Daniel Gibson, and friends last weekend in Cleveland. The happy couple celebrated the big b-day with an ’80s-themed bash at Tavo Martini Loft.
