She is the Queen

Peter and I went to Foxwoods Casino tonight (well, last night actually) to see Queen Latifah performing her sassy, jazzy versions of old and new standards. She is a gorgeous, sexy, vital presence on stage, and her alto voice can purr, rap, and shout with equally rousing effect. To me, Queen Latifah (or Dana Owens, as she was born) is the epitome of old-style all-around stardom. I was absolutely thrilled to see her live tonight with a crack back-up band and singers. Her charisma and natural ease had the audience with her from the first note.

If you haven't listened to her previous CD, "The Dana Owens Album," give yourself the pleasure.

The camera phone couldn't cope with all the backlighting from this marquee poster, thus the funky exposure; but that is me posing with the QUEEN.


  • I adore Queen Latifah! I'm jealous that you got to see her perform.
