Historic Filipinotown 5K Run & Fest Recap/The Roxy Preview
2 days after The Roxy, we found ourselves in DJisLORD's hood of Historic Filipinotown performing at their annual 5K Run and Festival. After sharing the stage in a joint set with homegirl Christine Alane (covering Keri Hilson's Pretty Girl Rock, an arrangement of Michael Jackson's Butterflies mixed with the song's writer Marsha Ambrosius new cover it. and her own original joint "City Up," featuring a live 16 from Elimn8), we were all extremely surprised and humbled to be awarded by the City of Los Angeles right after our set with an award for our community work with the event (as seen in the flick above).
Like I just said, EXTREMELY surprised and humbled. In the picture with Lord, Key, Elimn8, and myself is the homies Joseph Villarosa and Robert Macaisa, who was at the event representing LMU's Isang Bansa; the campus' Filipino student union organization. Mos def a fun set with a great crowd, and an honor to be a part of such an important event to the Filipino community. *Soul Claps & Salutes*
And we know a lot of you have been buggin us about full video and flicks from The Roxy show. In the works now ladies and gentlemen. The pictures will come first and film footage we are doing something special with. Stay tuned for that announcement. In the mean time, shouts out to the homie Alex Minassi who has posted some raw (and do mean RAW in all caps) footage of us on stage that night via his camera phone. I hope this can hold all you over, lol!!!
