Tawanna Shaunte brought the heat from Jackson, MS for the Black History Month kick-off concert at the Community Folk Art Center (CFAC).

Singer/songwriter Tawanna Shaunte and her band: Bill Perry, Jr. (keys), Brady Watt (bass) Xayvon Jamison (drums) pounced on the opportunity to make their mark on Friday.  Shaunte brought vocal tenacity and the band generated almost enough soulful heat to warm up the entire Connective Corridor.   The memorable jam session served as the kick-off for Black History Month.

In case you missed it, get a taste of their southern-style jazz/blues nouveau in the clip below.

The show was another effective collaboration between CFAC and WAER-FM 88.

Todd modeled the “Prayers for Pearl” shirt on Saturday afternoon.

We wanted to show some love to Dave Jacobs (former SU kicker and owner of Shirt World) for talking with us about the “Prayers for Pearl” t-shirt that he conceived along with Brandon Steiner.

Today 1000 shirts were given away (courtesy of SideArm Sports) for the SU game against Georgia Tech in the Carrier Dome.

Steiner has undertaken a gofundme project to help with Pearl Washington’s healthcare costs.

Proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to benefit Pearl’s medical expenses as well.
