Jazmine Sullivan-"Anything To Have" (unreleased)
Jazmine Sullivan is taking a break from the music game for a minute. ST gave you her cut, "I'm Not A Robot", which is probably how she feels right about now about the industry. This music game is 'art', but it's also a lot of 'work'. A lot of time on the road, a lot of time away from family, and sometimes people want to do their art and remain a regular Joe, but it usually doesn't go like that. For whatever personal reasons Jazmine step back from the game, we wish her well and as fans we can't wait for her return. But in the meantime ST just got its hands on an unreleased tracks from Jazmine. This cut, "Anything To Have" sounds a little unfinished, but you gotta love her vibe and her voice on this dance track.
Black Ohio Mom Released From Jail In Controversial School Case
I worked in Child Protection for New York City for 7 years and the most important question a CPS worker had to asked themselves before removing children from an environment was, "Is this BEST for the children?" Well in the case of Kelly Williams-Bolar (if you need to catch up, click here), I am confused how a decision was made to send this mother of two to jail without considering the children and the effects it will have on them. Children are always innocent and in this case, they suffered. This was this mother's first offense (if it was even a crime at all), taking children away from her will leave a PERMANENT mark in her children's mind, and her father (who the children stayed with while mom was in jail) pays taxes in his suburban community. We have to get this woman's sentence reduced (to a misdemeanor). She was 12 hours away from completing her degree to become a teacher. Is this America? Just because she lives in the projects, does that mean she shouldn't dream the American dream? America wasn't founded on honesty and that is fact. This is a very poor case of justice or is it JUST-US? ST will continue to follow this story as it unfolds.
