AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
The second annual South Beach Party held at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Saturday night was all about the music. Presented by N-Motion Entertainment, the event featured a super energized performance by jazz saxophonist Eric Darius. He rocked the socks off the nearly 200 music lovers before emcee Debbie Norrell introduced this year's honorees Bill Peduto, candidate for mayor, Nelson Harrison, trombonist of the Count Basie Orchestra, and Donna Baxter, CEO of Soul Pitt Media. In between sets guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and some socializing. N-Motion CEO Shawn Hopson and his team, including Popa Banks, also organized the after party with DJ Mike the Punisher, line dancing with Roland Ford and urban ballroom dancing with Bill Ford.
