Sunday May the 2nd may very well be a date that is remembered in the minds of the Guyanese people, (specifically the City/Town of Linden) for years to come, because apart from the week long City/Anniversary celebration that included everything that one could be desire when it came to entertainment, sound clash, beauty contest, cricket matches and so on, all of that was simply not enough, because in a manner that could be considered, being summoned by royal decree, the presence of the Money goddess was requested, and in true goddess fashion, she responded to the call and stood tall.

In San Francisco, the land of diverse dance party situations where all the selectors' crates and hard drives are brimming with world music tracks, it takes a special breed of weekly party to survive and thrive. DJs Daneekah and GreenB (a.k.a. Coo-Yah! Ladeez) have been heating up dancehalls and sustaining the flame with their weekly Coo-Yah! Wednesdays in San Francisco since late 2007. Each spinning their own sets, collaborating and inviting guest DJs representing various cities, counties and sound systems, they’re an unstoppable team of pure hot ‘gyal’ gusto with a diverse crew of loyal fans.
The City of Miami Gardens' 5th annual ''Jazz in the Gardens'' Hosted by Tom Joyner brought out the cream of the crop of jazz and R&B to perform at the two-day music festival. Saturday, March 20 saw the likes of local artists such as Rachel Brown, Jon Saxx and Kawan DeBose, as well as national artists like Mary J. Blige, Robin Thicke, Teena Marie, Joe Sample and K'Jon hitting the stage for jaw-dropping performances. As the sun fell on the City of Miami Gardens, Teena Marie amazed the crowd with a high-energy set that included not only her solo hits, but also her legendary duets with long-time mentor, Rick James. Just weeks before the birth of his first son, Robin Thicke took the ''Jazz in the Gardens'' stage by storm with recent hits like ''Sex Therapy'' and ''Shakin' It for Daddy,'' as well as crowd favorites like ''Lost Without You'' and ''Magic.'' However, the highlight of the night came from the queen of R&B, Mary J. Blige, as she brought the crowd to tears with her powerful rendition of ''I Can See in Color.'' Closing the Saturday night show in style (she was wearing Giuseppe Zanotti peep toe heels after all), Mary J. brought the house down with her up-tempo club hit, ''Family Affair.'' There was definitely no hateration or holleration after the last performance of the night.
