Because The G-List Society uses our platform to provide a spotlight for LGBT personalities, we are incorporating audio interviews onto our blog and YouTube for easy access to get to know the musicians, politicians, authors, personalities and other notables.
All interviews with the LGBT notables will be conducted by The G-List Society creator Waddie G. Get used to his voice and his passion to introducing and familiarizing you to LGBT personalities who deserve your attention as entertainers and leaders who make our community more dimensional in beauty, talent and strength than one can imagine.
Originally conducted in March 2013, check out our latest interview with R&B/pop entertainer Marck Angel. Marck Angel is one of the few LGBT personalities who excite Waddie G. in conversation because of his effervescent personality. His soft, high-pitched singing vocal matches his charm every two socialize. Marck and Waddie engaged in a great conversation about his musicality, especially when Waddie G. was surprised to learn that Angel actually produces his track. That further engaged the two talk about Angel’s influences and excitement whenever he performs at pride festivals, etc. His new single “Nothing” is a sassy that features New York rapper Billy Hood, and Marck elaborates on how the song actually came about. Marck shares that music is not the only project he currently has going for.
Press play to get to know more about Marck’s talents and the project he plans to entertain us with.
New York pop/R&B singer Marck Angel made promised on new material from his forthcoming album and came back in a major way with the kiss-off uptempo jam “Nothing.” Featuring street emcee Billy Hood, Angel makes it very clear to the lover that scorned his that he is the past.
The uptempo rhythm provides a great backdrop to the song as it screams, “I’m walking away, and you’ll never get this again”…not literally, of course.
It looks like Marck Angel is off to a great start on this new album with a strong track. We would love to hear this as a solo track as Angel’s “dear john” verbal attack made us forget that their was a guest appearance.
The G-List Society joined over 200 celebrators at the illustrious U.S. Presidential Inaugural celebration at the Warren Huntley hosted “En Cirque Noir: Inaugural 2013 Celebration” inside Washington DC’s lofty Lost Society lounge. The exclusive affair drew many notables and personalities in the LGBT community from all over the U.S. and allies.
The snazzy affair contained a live band, of its singer whom we caught singing a stirring rendition of Tamar Braxton’s “Love & War,” champagne toasts, two floors of mingling and dancing and friends celebrating in the spirit of American progression.
We were very fortunate to run into the likes of Nathan Hale Williams, Reese Brown, J.R. Rolley, Jai Laurence, J. Omar Tutler, Antar Wright and Neko Bunch. As always, it was great to chum it up with these great people.
We got great scoop in the midst of our mingling. Fresh from a breath-taking trip in Dominican Republic, travel guru/philanthropist Laurence Pinckney gushed about a trip he is looking to host there. We saw photos of the dwelling out there, and those photos look like the kind of paradise we would love to luxuriate. Pop singer Marck Angel was excited to announce his new single right before he leaked the single’s cover. We look forward to playing the follow-up to his smash hit and music video “Deep.” We even had a nice discussion about how much the LGBT music scene has progressed in recent years. Veteran R&B crooner Anthony Antoine revealed to us that a new single and music video is on the horizon. ”Finding Me” web series producer Jared Paul Shuler announced new episodes and an impending relationship with us at The G-List Society. That is awesome news. Isn’t it?
Enough talk about all the excitement in the gala. Check out the photos for yourself.
Washington DC was the ultimate destination to celebrate the Inauguration of Barack Obama’s second term as President of the United States over the past weekend. On Monday, January 21, black-tie galas and watch celebrations ran abundantly over DC including the black-tie affair we attended that was hosted by Atlanta celebrity event planner Warren A. Huntley. Titled “En Cirque Noir” men and women in the LGBT community and allies attended this exclusive affair inside the Lost Society lounge where everyone donned their finest threads and reveled in seeing long lost friends, networking and celebrating President Obama.
Check out all the action from The G-List Invasion camera as attendees enjoyed themselves over exquisite interior decor, sounds from a live band, nostalgic music spun in the upper floor and the excitement to catch up with lost acquaintances.
In the spirit of honoring one another in the Black LGBT community, Chicago rapper Scandocious JR has created the Black Gay Music Awards. This new celebration highlights the achievements among LGBT people in music and personalities who support their musical movements.
Interestingly, JR is nominated in many of the categories listed below as well as a slew of his well-known enemies past and present including LastO and Bry’Nt. The G-List Society’s own Waddie G. is nominated in the Best LGBT Personality category, so we hope that he takes home the win.
There is also a fan’s choice category where you can support your favorite Black LGBT music artist. We are submit our own vote. We hope you do so too.
I joined the Instagram craze in May 2012 trying to figure out how I will stay on top of all these social media outlets at once to keep in touch with friends, family and The G-List Society supporters. In no time, I became hooked to showing off the vacations, delectable dishes, celebrity run-ins, local excursions and good times with friends to the few hundred people that follow me on Instagram. I also enjoyed perusing through my friend’s and Instagram followers’ galleries too.
Here are some of my favorite captured moments, in chronological order, via Instagram throughout 2012. Some of these moments were shared with friends including Lonnell Williams, Laban King and Devin Norwood. I was also glad to receive well-wishes from notable LGBT personalities including Anthony Antoine, D.J. Baker, Eric E. Jones, Gyant, Marck Angel, Rita Lee and Q. Hudson. Read the captions on the side of each photos to understand the experience I embraced during those moments.
Get into another sexy episode of 3LWTV’s “Pillow Talk” series as host Lonnell Williams gets R&B/pop singer Marck Angel in bed. The twosome reflect over Marck’s musical influences and his groundbreaking hits including “Deep,” whose music video features the sexy rap star Bry’Nt.
The singer also gets deep into conversation with Williams about love, sex and relationships including some dating and cheating scenarios that Angel himself has encountered.
Right now, we feel like kicking Williams out of the bed and join the sexy Marck for our line of private questioning, but you can get into this awesome video right now.
Following the video that 3LWTV released from the Al Sura In Black party in Washington, Lonnell Williams and company shared photos taken at the event. Hundreds of women and men donned their best black attire at the event’s ballroom inside L’Enfant Hotel. In fact, so many people could have made the best dressed list.
We were mostly impressed to see a great mix of men and women as well as varied age demographics.
Our friend Lonnell Williams of 3LWTV posted his latest episode where many LGBT people of color congregated in Washington DC for the annual Al Sura In Black party. Beautiful women and men donned their finest black attire in this event that gives proceeds into HIV/AIDS researched. 3LWTV caught up with some of the who’s who of the east coast including Zakeera “Zee” Belton (A2Zee Events), singer/actor Marck Angel, Ebone Bell (Capital Queer Prom), comedian Sampson McCormick and many more.
The G-List was in the place to be also. Get a load of funny commentary from Waddie G.
Waddie G. and The G-List Society flew out to Washington DC, after days of running the streets of New York, to revel in the Al Sura In Black party that took place this past Saturday. Hundreds of women and men filled up the ballrooms and halls of L’Enfant Hotel in DC’s Mall district where deejays spun house, urban and lounge music in various rooms.
It was amazing to a large event as such where the affair was not dominated by or heavily promoted towards one gender. Photos are coming soon so you can see all the beautiful people that came to this affair hosted by the Al Sura organization. Al Sura hosts a few annual events to raise funds to research HIV-prevention and care to all people of color. The organization’s board consists of President Abdur-Rahim Briggs, Treasurer Franklin Morris Wilkerson, Ronald Lee McDonald-Thomas, Zakeera “Zee” Belton and many notable people from the DC area who donate their time and resources for this great cause.
Our friend Lonnell Williams of 3LWTV came to shoot video footage of the event, which will come soon. Also, media friend Andre Allen, R&B singer Marck Angel and comedian Sampson McCormick were some of the luminaries in attendance.
For us, the event flew by so fast that we could not process how much fun we actually enjoyed when meeting wonderful people and encountering old friends.
Franklin Morris Wilkerson & Waddie G.
Waddie G. and his good friend Franklin Morris Wilkerson took one quick picture before Waddie left DC to fly back home to Chicago on Sunday.
