Mr.Taylor (www.indakno.com) and myself (http://Twitter.com/SocialAddiction) I was ret ta go at this point!

Polow had to leave town but as they say, "The party must go on." and go on it did. Polow Da Don, million dollar super producer held his first annual, Foundation F.O.C.U.S event last week giving light to our youth in areas of education, and provided programs and seminars. Keep the youth motivated to succeed, that's what i'm talking about! A worthy cause.

Wednesday night the foundation held an intimate soiree at the W Hotel in Atlanta leading into Thursdays fashion show held at Club Opera, featuring designs like Sean Jean and apparel from local kick back fashions like, Sole Monkey. Stunning male and female models strutting down stages, stairs and run ways.

A highlight for me was when the teen group, The Hemp Hill Kids got up to perform a few times. They first came out signing an old Jackson 5 hit (and KILLED it...POW!!), then came back later before Atlanta's favorite, Monica (taping her reality show) got on stage. The kids can sing and dance. A very talented, young, humble and positive teen group. More please! They are gonna do some great things with the right promotion. They are sweet kids on top of all i learned sitting with them back stage.

Finally Monica got on stage to host the party part of the night. It was a little late and the crowd who had anticipated her coming earlier, had started to thin (HELLO this is the entertainment industry and celebs don't keep time yall), but the gorgeous singer, still gave her heart. Showing love to the performing kids and her die hard fans. She teased us a little with her angelic voice and rocked it out on stage to the DJ. Yes the party went on. And so did i. I was sleepy & home called.

Here is a little of Monica singing (view video). (It was dark but we got some light going soon!)

Congrats to Foundation F.O.C.U.S on a successful launch. I admire when people with heart an influence show their real strength by giving attention to something other than their career.

p.s. A fashion show should have fashions right? Well this time my focus was on Monica and the kids performing. But you can get pictures from Freddyo.com.
