Justiin Davis is one of those An Artist and a Player that is as natural in front of a camera as i am when i cut hair . I love what the writers and director is doing with Justiin’s character on ” BoardWalk Empire ” . I first met Justiin on a Fashion Shoot for B&H Camera Chain Stores . He looked so unassuming before we began , but boy , did he ever come to-life once the photographer’s began to shoot . I predict big things in the future from this indiviual

As his aunt I will say he was amazing even as a little boy. So manty people would just comment on his personality, and how talented he is. He is a very hard worker at his craft. He is very humble and has what it takes in such a competive field. He still finds time to give back of his time etc. Justiin you rock. Keep up the good work.

She has INTEGRITY, LOVES helping others, hence showing the ropes so to speak and she is a veteran in this business with passion for living a purpose filled life in pursuit of her destiny.
Personally, I can appreciate anybody that follows there dreams, goes after them and reaches for their goals despite what live may throw at them, thus she is very consistent with persistent and relentless with achieving her aspirations, while pulling others up along her journey.
Aminah Cole is a DYNAMIC woman of kindred spirits, very humble, loving, and genuinely cares for others as she does herself, which is why she teaches others oppose to being all about self, she actually shares information about the industry: some do’s and don’t’s, must have’s and stay away from, and needless to say that in itself is simply priceless.
She is a rare find within the ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY, especially as it relates to PLUS SIZE MODELING & PERFORMING ARTS, Aminah Cole is a devoted MENTOR, LEADER, AMAZING & GIFTED TALENT, and ADVOCATE that we (a lot of her friends both off and online) simply love her, which is why she needs to WIN.
Certain, Aminah would represent the establishment of Black Street and the Black Celebration Awards.
What Aminah Cole offers so many, especially young girls with low self-esteem who may be overweight and/or Plus Size that they can love themselves first, have confidence and live a life they love by starting with doing what they love while teaching others to do the same.

Miss Lynnette Carr-Hicks is the greatest, most phenomenal teacher/second mother we can ask for. She teaches drama, and show choir as her job, but her true goal in life is to bring out the performer in each of her students. She is doing more than helping the black community in long island, but she is one of the foundational rocks that us students build upon, and she surely deserves to be honored.
June 14, 2012 at 10:23 pm
May 27, 2012 at 3:50 pm
Mrs. Carr-Hicks is not only an amazing woman, but she is also a wonderful show choir director. She really helps you come out of yourself and be the best performer you can be. She invests her time and energy in us. Without her Uniondale High School Show Choir “Rhythm of the Knight” wouldn’t even exist or achieve all the accomplishments we have achieved thanks to Mrs. Carr-Hicks. I think she truly deserves this award. She is making history in our black community.
May 29, 2012 at 3:43 pm
Mrs. Carr is an amazing woman. She is extremely talented and simply amazing. Despite what is going on in her life, she puts her students first. She is like a mother to us and deserves this award. -Safirya

June 4, 2012 at 6:41 pm
Aminah Cole is a very gifted and talented entertainer and a staunch advocate for the arts, especially as it pertains to fuller-figured artists. She is widely cognizant of the multi-faceted ways in which plus-sized entertainers contribute to music, fashion and drama. Ms. Cole is pursuing her dream of providing a vehicle for plus-sized entertainers to convey their passion for the entertainment arts and in the midst of those ventures, lobbying for full societal acceptance of talented individuals who may not fit the standard. Aminah is helping to open doors to the full-figured entertainment community that would otherwise be closed. PLEASE VOTE FOR and support Aminah Cole in her endeavors as she moves forward with her efforts to ensure that plus-sized individuals take center stage!

Mrs, Lynnette Carr-Hicks is not only an amazing performer and singer herself but she has the ability to shape and mold young minds into great performers. She is like a mother to all her Show Choir children, and we feel safe no where else. Mrs Carr-Hicks strives for excellence in every performance and demands it from her students. She presents a real-world perspective on aspiring singers, dancers, actors etc. Only Mrs. Carr-Hicks has a heart big enough to give to her students. Mrs. Carr-Hicks pushes past mental, physical, spiritual pain for the idea “The Show Must Go On”. She puts her health in jeopardy to ensure our Show Choir performances are the absolute best they can be. Mrs. Carr-Hicks is kind, loving, and forgiving. I know no one else that genuine. PLEASE VOTE FOR Mrs. Lynnette Carr-Hicks.

What is going on with the tallying of these votes? On Monday Brianna Seagraves was up to 7.02% and today she is back to 6.68. Is this some kind of joke that I am wasting my time on each day?
BLACK STREET said:
June 13, 2012 at 8:50 am
It isn’t a waste of time if you care for her to win. There are other nominees who are aggressive in having voters vote for them. The way the percentile works is, as voters vote more for an individual, their percentage increases and other nominees within the category percentages decrease.
June 19, 2012 at 2:35 pm
Thanks for clearing that up! I believe in working hard for causes and this one is important enough to us! TEAM Aminah Cole!
August 1, 2012 at 4:38 pm
Well so now the percentages are not showing up at all and this close to the end of the voting that’s kind of shady???? IJS been campaigning and supporting this effort and now we don’t know who is where in this competition doesn’t seem fair to me right now!

#TeamTiahKnox ! I am cheering for Ms. Tiah Knox. I’m one of her girls she gave the opportunity to learn how to be a MODEL. I’m 17 years old and want to become a professional model soon and Ms. Knox is taking time out of her busy schedule just to help me. The best part is, I’m not the only one! But enough about me. She is a very intelligent; dedicated woman with a lot of class, beauty, and ambition. Plus, she has a lot of heart and her personality is out of this world! She’s my inspiration because she never gives up even when the time gets tough and still look beautiful doing it . That’s what I call a glamorous warrior diva! Go Tiah !

Ms. Tiah Knox can be described as one who is creative, inventive, caring, a leader, and a friend of the peoples’. As her sister, i see Ms. Knox as who gives back to the community throufh her the different arts the Lord has blessed her with. Through projects she fosters such as The Loving Me project and her LPSP magazine, and through others as well, Ms. Knox is one who is self given and brings service to others in her community. It is with a sincere heart that Ms. Knox should recieve this award.

Lynnette Carr-Hicks …. Enough Said
June 19, 2012 at 6:55 pm
As one who inspires, Miss Knox has been the face of beauty, diginity, sophifistication, class and model. In alll she presents herself in, she takes on the role of one who helps and mentors through the various programs she oversees, such as “The loving me project,” which carters to teenage females who encounter trumatic situations and thus help to regain their beauty and selfesteem, the ” God Got This Magazine” project; a project that introduces Jeaus Christ into society, feaurtering celebrities that have a foundation based on the Lod Jesus Christ, and the Rowell-Marie Collection, a clothing collection designed for full figure women in the 21st century. With a heart of gold and a mission to be of self service to othwrs, Miss Knox dedicates her life to helping people because she choses to and because there is a need and such people should be rewarded for their hearts’ work.

Ok everyone its time to clear things up. This is a tight race indeed but we all know that Ms.Carr-Hicks is gona win this. She is undoubtly the mst hard working individual ive ever seen. She is coach of the #1 winning showchoir in the country, Our championship trophy says so, Fox5 says so, CNN says so, News12, ABC, Sheryl Ralph(Mother of Moesha, Played the original Effie for Dream girls on broad way), our hardwork says so, and we say so. Now Ms.Cole may be a good person,BUT Ms.Carr-Hicks is the better person for always putting us first. We would do anything for her, seriously anything dont test us -_-. For the time being she may not be in first by votes, but she will always be first to us.So vote for the most hard working and qualified individual. And if your still confused its Lynnette Carr-Hicks!!! #TEAMCARR-HICKS!!! let anyone else that thinks otherwise go that way—–>

Eunice Lewis says that Brianna Seagraves is a gifted and talented young lady who always has the support of her extended family and friends. We’ve all watched her grow through and in many areas of entertainment. She’s beautiful both physically and spiritually and the mediums of stage, screen and television would be blessed to have her share her gifts.

Go Vanessa Evans! Vanessa is a phenomenal actress, director, producer and writer. I’ve never seen someone with such a passion for the arts combined with a dedication to community service. She deserves to be honored for her work and it is an honor to know her and see her in action.
Harold Bent said:
August 5, 2012 at 8:48 am
Vanessa has brought back the arts in Harlem when most arts programs have been and still are closing down. She’s opening up the doors for our youth to express themselves through creative art. While public school institutions have closed down their performing arts programs, which are restricted to dance, music, and theater, the talking drum sets the stage for our children to express themselves no matter what talents they may possess. I support Vanessa’s efforts in serving the Harlem community and it’s a no brainer that many accolades will follow her endeavors.

Lynette Carr-Hicks is a dynamic motivator that has a talent for bringing out the talents and abilities of others regardless of their level. I have seen her take children as young as 4 who were quiet and introverted and turn them into solo singers. Her talent, dedication and abilities are abundantly evident with the work she has done with the Uniondale High School Show Choir which has won National Awards, been featured several times on television shows and has and will be performing during MLB and NBA sporting events. God has blessed her with a special gift and she has used it to bring out the best in others.

A devoted woman with a couragous spirit. One who is not only there for another but she is an inspiration to so many. She brought the Talking Drum Theatre Arts Program to life. What was only a thought is now a movement with a steady pulse. She has helped these children of our Harlem Renaissance community to learn of their true inner selves. During these sprouting moments of guidance with the youth she too has blossomed beautifully into an even more astonishing person. She took on the responsiblilty of a role model and never looked back. “Lights, Camera, Action!!!” Her light is truly shining bright. These students no longer watch television just because a show is on and it is something for them to do. The minds of these young people have been enlightened. Being apart of the Talking Drum Theatre Arts Program has opened up another perspective on theatre for her students and they’re families as well as they’re friends/peers. These students will strive to be the B-E-S-T because of her understand, support and motivation. Knowledge is key and she gives them that data or information when they need it. I am sure all of the nominees deserve the Acting & Performing Arts Award. To have come this far I applaud all of the nominees. A person with her natural abilities should always be acknowledged for her positive influence to our children of our future. I honor her, Vanessa Evans, my icon. Vanessa, I commend you on your leadership. Your accomplishments have brought you to a new horizon. Continue to thrive!
