Feel Good Friday | R&B Diva Gives Back in the Big Easy


Kelly Price may be too booked for  R&B Divas: Hollywood but she made time to spoil Big Easy residents this week.

Capitalizing on Essence Fest buzz, the balladeer joined the bishop and first lady of Beacon Light International  Cathedral in Louisiana to lend a helping hand to pamper Hurricane Katrina survivors.

Or hands.

As there are a lot of moving parts to her service oriented mission. Let’s start with the beauty makeovers. Walk-ins were treated to press and curls and faces getting beat by volunteers.

Plates of free food. I mean, need we say more. Well, if you insist…

There was also free health and mental screenings. Even Beacon Light Bishop Darryl Brister took advantage of it by getting his blood pressure checked.Or as Kelly calls it “leading by example.”

All supplies for the Give Back to New Orleans event was donated online and through the church.

Wonder why Lil Mo and Dawn couldn’t make it…

Callin’ Good Samaritans!!! “R&B DIVA” Kelly Price Wants YOU


“R&B Divas: Atlanta” reality star and famed balladeer Kelly Price is making an offer glam squads (hopefully) won’t refuse.

During this year’s ESSENCE Fest, Price wants to serve more than high notes from hit songs “As We Lay” and “Friend of Mine.” The “It’s My Time” singer is teaming up with a “Global Brand” to help round up some deserving ladies from women’s shelters and low income areas in New Orleans to beautify and counsel.

Kelly says she’ll soon announce what well-known brand she’s merging with. My guess is it’ll be an ESSENCE sponsor. My Black is Beautiful? Coca Cola? Don’t laugh, it wouldn’t be the first time. Stay tuned…

The “R&B Diva” wanted to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans by being a blessing to others still, a decade later, trying to pick up the pieces.

“It is my firm belief that as we are blessed we should in turn bless others,” says Kelly.

Yaaaassss Ms. Price, couldn’t have said it better.
