Washington, D.C. is proud to call several celebrities their own. Take actress Taraji P. Henson, R&B singer Raheem DeVaughn and rapper Wale, to name a few. Each of these people achieved their dreams through persistence, dedication, and recognition. The right place. The right time. The right person. All three elements fell into place thanks to some form of platform that created an opportunity to be discovered. Call it networking, call it fate, but this Saturday several nominees in various categories will call it an honor.
In just a few days, a formal “Grammy-Style” awards show will recognize hardworking musical artists, fashion industry professionals and community achievers from the Greater Washington Metro Area. With several live performances, a moving and sensational tribute to Ms. Jeannie Jones from 93.9 WKYS and more, the 1st Annual LSS Awards will be one to remember.
