The Occasion: Pay Tribute to Janet Jackson and her Up Close & Personal Tour
The Event: A Flash Mob produced by Flash Mob of America. Check them out after the videos!
See the performance and meet my FAV Flash Mob dancer. Cab Calloway zoot suit meets Bobby Brown's "Every Little Step" Hammer pants, pimp hat, and spats...Mr. John Edwards was GETTING IT IN!!!! Gave the youngun's a run for the money. I had to interview him! Dude was sho 'nuff "Alright With Me!"
If you follow this blog, then you know this is not the first time, LA Flash Mob has paid tribute to Ms. Jackson. In fact, I too had planned to be a "Mobber" but scheduling just wouldn't permit making it to rehearsals. So instead, I pointed my lens toward the organizers and dedicated Janet fans. Watch the throwback videos!

Having anxiously waited all morning and a good part of the afternoon in the LA heat for Janet to arrive, some fans literally let loose in her presence, while others waited until they got outside to vent their joy at meeting their "Queen". Grown men openly wept or danced while one excited woman literally screamed to the Hollywood Hills. One passing by may have thought a tent revival was occurring, but in the presence of Janet, it's a known fact that even the non-religious often have a "religious" experience.
Since we the press had to wait for Janet too, I turned my lens as I always do to the fans. "Light-skin, dark-skin, the Asian persuasion..." Janet's got them all and I talked to many of them about "True You" and its impact. What they shared was enlightening but also a testament as to why "True You" is a NY Times best-seller. So watch the video and leave a comment!
If you've read the book or attended a show, give me some "Feedback"!
