Melange Lavonne's performance at Capital Pride Festival 2008 still reverberating in my head!

Since having heard Melange Lavonne at the 15 June 2008 Capital Pride Festival the voice, the lyrics, the activism and the beauty of the Lesbian Hip Hop artist has been on my mind.

And reverberating in my head!

While I do not have the time, right now, to delve into the impression that she has made upon me ... since the purpose of this posting is to provide you with links to various videos and images that I shot of Melange Lavonne performing at the Main Stage during the 2008 Capital Pride Festival, hopefully, I'll find the time later to give her a proper review.

The above photosets which are included in my 33rd Annual Capital Pride / 2008 collection and along with the following videos are accessable from my 33rd Annual Capital Pride - WDC / 2008 webpage:

Metro Weekly's 5 June 2008 article Mixing It Up by Doug Rule sheds light on her story.

In addition to writing songs, dabbling in music production and touring with HomoRevolution 2008, Melange has also done some modeling and acting and is attending school, majoring in graphic design with a minor in business marketing.

Having released her first cd, Melange, in 2006 ... her sophomore effort, The Movement, which I believe was released in April 2008 ... is receiving raved reviews.

I am almost certain that once you hear her music and listen to her lyrics or witness her performance ... you, too, will not be able to 'get Melange Lavonne out of your head'.

And like so many others, including me ... wishing and hoping for her next project.

Check out her website and myspace.

I am so happy you are spreading the word about Melange! She was also interviewed in and her CD was reviewed there as well. Thanks for spreading the word about this awesome artist. She just rocked San Francisco's PRIDE yesterday!
