THE PROGRAM DETAILS
The event will open up with our keynote speaker. She is an example of hope and survival of domestic violence. Lisa Reed who holds many titles is a Domestic Violence Advocate, Community Activist, and has earned the honor of becoming "Mrs. Nevada Plus America 2011", "Ms. Beauty Plus America 2012 & 2013. She will share her testimony of strength and determination to fight for her life and live to tell her story. She encourages everyone who has or has not experienced domestic violence to support and donate to the cause that to this day does not receive the recognition it should.
We will also have very special guest performances, which includes Las Vegas' very own talented and dynamic "Intelligenz"!!!
Intelligenz, an emcee born and raised in Chicago Illinois is a Recording Hip-Hop Artist, elevating her career in the bright lights of Sin City. Choosing a name that would force her to be accountable for her lyrics, Intelligenz takes pride in being an example for women. Surviving the death of her mom at 16 and foster care for 12 years on the South side of Chicago, she enlisted in the military at 18. Serving honorably for 6.5 years as a police officer in the Air Force, she went on to complete her Bachelor's in Criminal Justice and after 2 years of being out the military got the courage to pursue her music. Writing since she was about 10 years, old she used music as a way to deal with her troubled childhood. Hidden to most, she kept her talent to herself, rarely revealing it until she began to rap around 16. Intimidated by the industry and battling stage fright, Intelligenz was scared to pursue music despite her love for it. She always wondered if she was good enough because of those she looked up to in the industry. But in Vegas, with support from family, she began her path to enter a journey traveled by many female Emcee's.
No matter how many competitions, open mics, festivals or venues she performed on the strip, it seemed she would struggle to catch a break as a female who chose to highlight her barz versus her "assets. After four years of closed doors, Intelligenz finally got her break. Now recognized as the OFFICIAL winner of MC Lyte's Next top Female MC competition she holds no doubt and owns her talent. Intelligenz drove from Las Vegas to Los Angeles to compete & battle against Femcee's from all over the country, entering a live cypher on stage in front of concert goers who came out to see MC Lyte herself, Yo Yo, Lady or Rage, Lil' Mama, MC Smooth and of course Monie Love. Hosted by DJ D-Wrek from Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out, it was a night to remember and a huge beginning for this "Next Top Female MC".
In the same month, Master Griot Radio/NBBT Radio saw her talent and submitted her in the Coast2Coast Mixtape 226 competition, hosted by Chrisette Michelle where her song "Running", Track 15, was selected for release as part of the mixtape project. Her debut single: "If You Ever Doubted" remains in rotation as a featured Indie Artist on Las Vegas's own KCEP Power 88.1. The song offers the perfect balance of melody, instruments and lyrical concept to render the soul that has been neglected in Hip-Hop today.
Continuing on with success, she is set to collaborate with legendary East Coast rapper, "Percee P". and follow up with her second single release in February 2013. Fans can expect her debut album, "Everything I Am" to be filled with conscious context, unexpected lyricism and word play that combine innovation and the authenticity of Hip-Hop. The album touches on her commitment to music, her story of overcoming tribulations while leaving room for a few surprises for those who try and box her in! Taking pride and responsibility in the craft of writing her own lyrics, she aims to follow in the footsteps of all the great Femcees who have paved the way before her. Today her focus passion is always music, helping veterans, foster kids and encouraging the youth to know anything is possible with education & faith.
There will be a raffle, favors, giveaways, special guests, and performances, as well as a special awards ceremony for Safe Nest and the amazing supporters of Operation Artist D.R.I.V.E.S Christmas Giveaway event 2013 at The Shade Tree Shelter of Las Vegas, Nevada where we were able to bless 200 women and 100 children who otherwise would not have a day to celebrate.
LISTENING PARTY / BIRTHDAY BASH
After the Fundraising Drive, we will go straight into the listening party for Las Vegas' very own Goddess, I.S.I.S (I Speak In Softness) of Poetry. Her single "Queendom Sun" is a special edition for Safe Nest and dedicated to all of the Queens, the women who gives more than she receives, the woman who love harder and deeper than the bottom of oceans sea, and who sometimes settle's for what she can get, losing herself in the process; ultimately finding herself in dangerous circumstances.
This lyrical poetic piece is sure to release that spirit of bondage and help "her" release herself from that person who wishes to control her.
Last but not least immediately following the Listening Party we will pop open the bubbly and celebrate LIFE like it's 2099...the BIRTHDAY BASH for I.S.I.S.....This will be an event to remember...don't be absent!
"Take Back The Reign through your Queendom Sun"
