So last weekend I had soooo much fun! My DC BFF’s came in town… They got in early Friday and of course in true “Ally Marie” fashion I was running a gazillion errands and was still in jersey so I met up with them Friday night for a relaxing dinner at Peaches in Bedstuy. We stayed up late Friday night catching up and having girl talk and then got up early Saturday to go see Fela on Broadway. One word-AMAZING! Honestly besides the fact that I could barely sit still and wanted to get up on stage and dance with them, they did a phenomenal job of pulling you into his story. It basically took us through his lifetime and also showed how integral his mothers presence was in his life even after her passing. I would definitely recommend seeing it if you can!
So Saturday night my boy Rondel had a launch event for his entertainment company/record label, Vitalize Entertainment in conjunction with non-profit partner Hip Hop 4 Life at the Dumbo Loft in Brooklyn. The event was great!. Good people, 90’s music (I knew the words to EVERY song), Performances, and complimentary cocktails.
There were performances by rising stars Nexus, A.Don.Iz and Young Voice and cocktails were provided by Blue Coat Gin. VIP goodie bags were sponsored by New York Yoga, Jane Carter Solution and Carolina Pad. If you get a chance check out the Vitalize Ent website below!

About Vitalize Entertainment:
Vitalize Entertainment is an indie record label whose main focus (in the words of owner Rondel Holder): “…is to capitalize on the “digital era” of music, rather than complain about it”. The word “vitalize” means to bring life, to invigorate. The goal of the label is to focus more on the quality of the music and the raw talent, instead of treating artists as products and seeing who can sell the most.В Rondel Holder’s vision is to “…shift the focus back to putting out quality music and create that feel good vibe of quality music we all miss and that resonates for years… rather than just push for the next Beyonce, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Usher etc… trying to create something brand new (which is what art is supposed to be) then everything else will fall into place.”
