Studio Q's Best of 2012 [VIDEO]
#1. Studio Q Moment of 2012 was with Whitney Houston on her final red carpet walk at Kelly Price's Pre-Grammy Party in Hollywood. I had no idea this would be our last hug, but I am so grateful I got a chance to see Whitney one last time. RIP Whitney Houston. I will always love you. Thank you for your realness with me and your kindness to me. I will cherish both forever and ever.
#2. In March of 2012 Studio Q interviewed Miki Howard backstage at the Catalina Jazz Club following her show. What Miki had to say about Whitney Houston really resonated with all of us who watched.
#3. Studio Q Moment of 2012 was with Jenifer Lewis by the pool of her Hollywood Mansion. We were honored to be welcomed into her space for a Studio Q interview. Jenifer Lewis exceeded all of our expectations.
#4. Interviewing Faith Evans was a definite highlight this year. What was even better was getting the amazing R&B Diva to sing for us. What she sang sounded so good I wanted to turn it into a ringtone! I bet when you hear it you will feel the same way. Faith even sang one of her favorite Whitney Houston songs, which will be included on the Whitney Houston Tribute we are currently working on for 2013.
#5. What a thrill it was for Studio Q to sit down with Grammy Award Winning Producer, Narada Michael Walden in 2012. He is responsible for a majority of Whitney Houston's #1 hits. 'How Will I Know', 'I Wanna Dance with Somebody', 'So Emotional', 'All The Man That I Need', 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go', and 'I'm Every Woman' showcase just some of the Billboard magic he made with Whitney.
#6. I don't know what woman does not love them some Eric Benét. You almost forget how fine he is because he is so down-to-earth. Our Studio Q interview took place in a studio where he recorded most of his 2012 smash hit album 'The One,'which was recorded on his own label Jordan House Records.
#7. Studio Q met up with up with the timeless voice that is known as Lalah Hathaway at Lemeirt Park in Los Angeles, CA. The interview we did with Lalah was easy, breezy, and memorable just like her music. I hope to see her sing live in 2013.
#8. It just doesn't get better than Studio Q interviewing an Original King of Comedy, Cedric The Entertainer, on the set of TV Land's hit new comedy 'The Soul Man.'
#9. The one thing I had in common this year with Oprah Winfrey was interviewing DeVon Franklin, Senior Vice President of Columbia Pictures and author of Produced by Faith. This man of faith is inspiration walking. I dare you not be motivated by him. Watch and be lifted like we were.
#10. We asked Sheila E. for a Studio Q interview after a Rachelle Ferrell concert back in March 2012. She didn't just say yes, she actually kept her word! Very, rare in this business called show. This interview was super special to me.
#11. If you ever watched Bill Cosby's 90's hit classic sitcom 'A Different World' then you already love Dawnn Lewis who played the character 'Jalessa' as much as we do. She not only co-starred in the show she wrote the iconic theme song we all love. In this Studio Q interview we not only get to catch up with this amazing talent and find out what's she's been up to, but we got to sing the theme song with her! This was not just a Studio Q interview this was a 2012 musical event.
#12. In 2012 Studio Q had the wonderful opportunity to cover many red carpets. The most recent event was the 'Mirror Mirror' awards. It made our list because although we have a good time everywhere we go, this event was especially fun. Maybe because we got to see the stars let their hair down and do The Wobble! Lol!
