We came across The LIFT Project on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 after checking out the hashtag for one of our brands, #WeLOVEHubCity. After checking out a few posts within our community, we came across Michelle Perez (thanks for supporting the hashtag). Not only is Michelle one of the co-leaders of the The LIFT Project, she is also a wedding planner based right here in New Brunswick, New Jersey!

Upon looking further into The LIFT Project, we were really intrigued by both the aesthetic and style in which their message was presented. We initially came across their flyer for their 1 year anniversary conference entitled, “For The Culture” which will be taking place this Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 10 am – 3 pm at 95 Cambridge Drive in Aberdeen, NJ 07747. It definitely looks exciting!

Why Do We Love The LIFT Project?

We absolutely admire and love how a group of young adults are giving themselves permission to create a community based on faith and good intentions. At The LIFT Project, they seek to inspire and provoke change. In addition, they also support the journey of one another through sharing both personal experiences and aspirations. This in itself is what we would identify as the true essence of building meaningful relationships.

We’re definitely looking forward to hearing and learning more about The LIFT Project as they continue to expand their brand in an effort to spread their message of strength, love, joy, and purpose. This is a message that we all certainly align with here at A Lovers Ambition Lifestyle Group. As a result, we know that with movements such as The LIFT Project, the world will continue to remain in great hands regardless of any turmoil we may have to endure. As long as we are in God’s hands, we are in great hands!

At the same time, Kiah continues to remain patient, poised, and determined to never compromise her artistry and authenticity in exchange for a quicker path to “Stardom.”

Notes To The Soul: MusicMakers 2017

Yesterday morning, we happened to receive an email pertaining to a 3-day career development conference for musicians entitled, MusicMakers. The MusicMakers Conference is aimed at teaching musicians how to successfully brand and monetize their art.

The force behind MusicMakers is a non-profit organization entitled, Notes To The Soul. The vision of NTTS is to inspire positive social change through sustainable music education and empowerment programs to benefit the socio-economic and musically disenfranchised.

We LOVE the entire vision of NTTS! In addition to running their MusicMakers conference, they also host a program called, Music is My First Language. This program consists of music education residencies in schools for students ages 9-18 in which the NTTS Foundation helps to provide scholarships and grants to children and schools.

For more information on any of the NTTS program offerings, please visit: notestothesoul.org.

Tori Kelly – Fill A Heart Tour (PART 1)

I love behind the scenes footage. Going from city to city…the grind, the hustle, airplanes, hotels, studios, stages. It’s such an adrenaline rush!!!

J.Viewz Playing “Teardrop” w/Vegetables

This has to be one of the coolest videos that I have seen in a while. How did I come across this might you ask? I was searching for a Halle Berry “Revlon” commercial to find out who did the music.

Funny enough, it was this guy right here. Coincidence??? NEVER. Check it out and watch the mastermind at work!!!

What is Behind The Hustle?

To answer this question, “Behind The Hustle” is an awesome initiative that I am super happy to have come across earlier today. It is a project designed by Creative Contraband and I actually came across it thanks to the likes of another creatively driven and forward thinking movement, Broccoli City.

All of these companies represent the culture and lifestyle that I am so proud to be apart of when it comes to art, education, entertainment, fashion, health, music, social issues, and empowering the youth.

If you’re like me, you will definitely appreciate this video!!!
