Nhojj on Channel 11 News

Posted on CommentsPosted in Top Stories, TV

I had a great time at NYC Pride this year! Lady Gaga gave a speech at Friday night’s Pride Rally and hung out long enough to hear my performance (someone from her entourage said they were all jamming to my band). Then my Sunday performance at PrideFest made it to Channel 11 News.

A big thank you to Michael Lavelle and everyone at NYC Pride, also a big thank you to my band – John F. Adams, Swiss Chris, Lonnie Plaxico, Marcelo Cardozo, Cameron Bernard Jones, Dave Tony and Temujin Scott!
