Fantasia at Laney High School ?

Can a musical icon like Fantasia Barrino help the children of Lucy Craft Laney High School?
but of course !!! On Friday December 4th .... Fantasia Barrino with grace the city of Augusta Georgia with her presence for a star -stunning concert .... Well with my connections as a radio personality ,my quest for the spotlight was gleaming , not for myself ,but for the students of Laney !!! Wouldn't that be great for Fantasia to come to Laney to speak with the students to tell them of her trials and tribulations . Her educationally challenges have been on the hearts and minds of people young and old . The question that puzzled many; How could this young senational lady with only a 8th grade education make it ?..... Well she's currently being tutored according to her manger, and she has a voice ,which is to encourge young people all over the United States to " STAY IN SCHOOL" Well today I spoke ton the Augusta Promoter for her Augusta Concert .Bill McKennelly said "Soul I can work on that for you " He replied that is great pr for Laney and Fantasia Both !!!t All I can say is ...NTI pray that she will come to take to our students on Dec 4th . As a Teacher you can connect with all types of people. We have the power!

Hi, Selina - good for you - I sure hope it happens as I'm sure it would make your students' day, or week, or year. Keep us posted. By the way, is your radio handle 'Soul Selina'?

She is mu cousin on my grandma side KC and JoJo we are all cousins from the Joines family Wadesboro. N.C. and Rocky Mount N.C. That should be lots of fun for the students to tell them to stay in school.
