So as I mentioned with the holiday approaching I am going to try to do my best to include you in everything that’s going on with The Evolution! LLC behind the scenes.

However, it is always glad to know you are still using the site as a resource for your busy lifestyle (I see you checkin in). We would love to hear what you all have coming up.

Leave them in the comments, and let’s vow to dive head first into this beautiful time of year together!

  1. Host a pumpkin beer-tasting party.
  2. Go apple picking with your family.
  3. Take a hike and catch a glimpse of the leaves changing.
  4. Properly clean all of your coats and sweaters.
  5. Perfect your apple pie recipe.
  6. Donate new coats and gloves to a homeless shelter.
  7. Learn how to make a pumpkin spice latte at home with organic ingredients.
  8. Pick up a book from the library and vow to finish reading it before the first day of winter!
  9. Host an at-home bonfire in the backyard.
  10. Create an indoor herb garden.
  11. Practice Thanksgiving recipes now so that you ‘wow’ your family come Nov. 24.
  12. Add seasonal mums to your front porch or stoop!

  16. VOTE!
  17. Start a daily gratitude journal.
  18. Attend an annual fall festival in your (or a nearby) town.

Initially surpassing the achievements of One Direction and JLS by becoming the first group to win The X Factor in the U.K., four-piece girl band Little Mix were one of the few success stories to emerge from the competition’s underperforming and controversial eighth season. Jade Thirlwall (who had auditioned for two previous series) and Perrie Edwards (both from South Shields), Jesy Nelson (from Romford, East London), and Leigh-Anne Pinnock (from High Wycombe) had all originally auditioned as solo artists, but like fellow acts Nu Vibe and the Risk, were put together as a group at the boot-camp stages. After impressing Jessie J and mentor N-Dubz’s Tulisa Contostavlos at Judges’ House, they made it to the live finals, where their engaging personalities, girl-next-door image, and contemporary song choices saw them outgrow their initial underdog status.

Originally known as Rhythmix, the girls were forced to change their moniker in week four after it was revealed that there was already a Brighton-based children’s charity of the same name. But following stellar performances of En Vogue’s “Don’t Let Go,” Katy Perry’s “E.T.,” and Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music,” they beat the Conway Sisters and Hope’s previous record to become the first girl band in the show’s history to make it past week seven. After contributing to the high-profile M&S TV ad campaign and the finalists’ charity cover version of Rose Royce’s “Wishing on a Star,” they eventually went on to triumph over Marcus Collins in the final.

The 2011 debut single from Little Mix, a rendition of Damien Rice’s hit “Cannonball,” went on to top the charts but scored the lowest first-week sales by an X Factor winner since Steve Brookstein’s “Against All Odds” (2004), and later lost the coveted Christmas number one spot to the Military Wives Choir. DNA, featuring the singles “Cannonball” and “Wings” (also a U.K. number one), was released in late 2012, and eventually became the highest U.K.-charting debut album ever by a British female group. In 2013, Little Mix returned with their sophomore album, Salute. Featuring production from such names as Future Cut, TMS, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Salute showcased a more mature, R&B-infused direction. A string of U.S. dates in support of Demi Lovato took place in early 2014 before the summer brought their largest U.K. tour to date. “Black Magic,” the first single from third album Get Weird, became the group’s third U.K. number one in 2015. Around the same time, Britney Spears released “Pretty Girls,” a single co-written by the group, which reached number 16 in the U.K. The group’s third studio album, Get Weird, followed later that year. ~ Jon O’Brien, Rovi

Little Mix Thinks One Direction Deserves Their Break

Little Mix stick together as one as they arrive at their album launch party in London, England on Wednesday night (November 11).

The girls — Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock — recently spoke with ET about One Direction‘s upcoming break.

“You know what, they need a break,” Perrie shared. “How hard they work and how successful they are — they just need a minute, but I think no matter what happens with them, they will always be successful because they’re good boys. They deserve it.”

Leigh-Anne added, “But how amazing to know that they’re a phenomenon and to be like, ‘Boys – we’ve done well, haven’t we? Let’s have a break.’ That’s just an incredible thing to be able to say!”

 

Community News…Reggie Wayne Key To the City Luncheon

Dear IBE Friends and Family,
 

Indiana Black Expo announced today that former Indianapolis Colt Reggie Wayne will receive the Key to the City of Indianapolis from Mayor Greg Ballard during the Pacers Sports & Entertainment Corporate Luncheon presented by Indiana University.  The luncheon will take place on Friday, July 17 at 11:00 PM in Halls D&E of the Indiana Convention Center as part of the 45th Annual Summer Celebration.

 

“Reggie has given back to our community on and off the field, and I am thrilled to present him with the key to the city,” said Mayor Ballard.  “From being a fan favorite throughout his years wearing the Colts jersey, to lending his time and energy to benefit countless good causes in Indianapolis, Reggie has been a role model to many.”

 

“We are excited about honoring Reggie Wayne and declaring the last weekend of Summer Celebration ‘Reggie Wayne Weekend,'” said Tanya Bell, IBE president & Chief Executive Officer.  “Besides his greatness as one of the best NFL wide receivers and the stellar example he set for the Colts franchise, Reggie has done so much for our community and we want to make sure that the state of Indiana is provided with an opportunity to thank him for his contributions,” added Bell.  “Reggie has always supported the mission of Indiana Black Expo and has invested significantly in our youth.  IBE will be forever indebted to #87,” added Bell.

 

Reggie Wayne played college football for the University of Miami and was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the first round (30th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft.  He is a six-time Pro Bowl selection, and was a member of the Colts’ Super Bowl XLI championship team.  He is currently sixth all-time in NFL receiving yards (leading all active players in both categories) and tied for 22nd all-time in career touchdown receptions.

 

The Corporate Luncheon is the largest luncheon in the state of Indiana with nearly 3,000 guests.  Tickets of $60 each and tables for $600 are available Click here or at the IBE box office located at 3145 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, Indiana. 

 

IBE will honor Reggie Wayne throughout Summer Celebration weekend.  The full schedule of events will be published for the community.  A “Thank You Reggie” exhibit will be featured during the Cultural Arts Pavilion from Friday, July 17 – Sunday, July 19.  The community will also have an opportunity to sign a display and see Reggie Wayne during the Annual Amp Harris & Reggie Wayne Saving Our Youth Celebrity Basketball game on Saturday, July 18 at 6:00 PM in Hall J of the Indiana Convention Center.

Music Mixx…..Maiya Norton

Maiya Norton Presents: The Sweet Spot

 

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 10.59.39 AM

I have a deep appreciation for music and how it affects me. On any given day, I’m generally listening to music from the time I awaken, throughout most of the day and up until it’s time to go to sleep. I listen when I’m happy, when I’m sad, and even when I just need a little background noise to break the silence. Music, sometimes, is a reminder of past events in your life and moments you won’t soon forget. Be it your first artist crush, or the song that played during a special date with that super special someone, it has the power to take you to a happy place. No matter the genre, music triggers my creativity and has been the soundtrack to the birth of some of my greatest ideas. 

That said, I was stoked to come across this Soundcloud mix today created by the lovely Maiya Norton. As a woman who’s been putting together head-nodding compilations since ’07, the Brooklyn-based music aficionado shared these thoughts on her latest and greatest:

I consider musical curation a gift as well as a passion. So, here we are with something fresh! The Sweet Spot is my new series which aims to highlight music that fits within a genre/feeling/moment, and showcase a new artist or photographer for every volume. Play it loud, share it, reminisce and enjoy!

Click here to get your dose of Maiya’s musical genius today. Trust and believe, you won’t be disappointed!
