Mirriam Makeba Sings For Honda & North American International Auto Show Charity Preview Gala!

Filed under : Entertainment

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) officially ended today!

With the super talent jewelery designer Carolyn Ferrari (r) & Kristyn (c)!

I attended the NAIAS Charity Preview Ball with my good friends, designers, Mark England, Cedi Johnson, Carolyn Ferrari and model scout, Robere Lett. Because of them, I get into most events and we had a ball at this year’s Charity Gala where tickets are between $250 – $450 per person!

This is an exclusive, high profile event attended by Who’s Who of the auto industry! Proceeds from the Charity Preview directly benefit a wide range of children’s charities including my mentor’s organization, Matrix Human Services.

I never got the chance to experience LIVE, the singing genius of the late Mirriam Makeba, affectionately known as Mama Africa. So I was pleasantly surprised to hear her voice and her “Pata Pata” song on the commercial for the all new Honda Accord Crosstour. So in honor of her memory, I stopped by the Honda section to peep the actual Honda Accor Crosstour…nice car actually! Check the commercial video below…

Loves it! Hope her estate was paid for this! Juss sayin’!

Check flicks of the fab fashions at the Charity Preview Ball & some fab cars…

Clearly the 2010 Bentley Mulsanne & I were meant to be…juss sayin’!

Inside the freakin’ Maybach Zeppelin! (they can lose the curtains though!) Juss sayin’!

    Nice show. It seems like you must have had such a great time. Those cars look like they’d be very happy parked in your garage, knowing how well you’d spoil them. :-)

    Btw, you look great in that dress.

    Thank you for the cool pic. We did have fun didn’t we? It was really nice to see you, and you were wearing that dress – for real!

    I have cool stuff to discuss with you so, let’s get together soon.
