the Queen of Haiti

Last night there was a free concert at Lincoln Center in NYC and Haitian's iconic figure was to there to perform. I had such a wonderful time and when i listened to the old songs that i have not heard in such a long time it brought back memories from when i was little girl living in Haiti... I was reminiscing about all the things i used to when these songs came out...I hardly ever go to any Haitians festivities however, for that one i had to be there.  having said that, i had the best time ever. Emeline was introduced to some during the telethon that was done for Haiti back in January.  Emeline is such a role model to us all and i am glad to have met her. Her soulful voice and her traditional sexy dance really were the highlight of the performance... Here are some shots that i took last night from my phone... a little side note i took on a cell phone so the adjustment is not quiet there.
