It’s not often when we see two women artist tour together, especially in the realm of R&B music, but when we do it’s a sight to see to let us know that not ALL divas clash heads.

WPGC 95.5 Shuts Down DC with ‘For Sisters Only’

Saturday, October 4th was an eventful day at the Washington Convention Center in the nation’s capital. The day was filled with amazing food vendor’s, clothes, seminars, entertainment and a stripper pole. Yes, I said a stripper pole.

Personally, I make it a point to attend the festivities every year and I make sure to include my family. You spend the entire day together having fun but learning at the same time. Panels such as ‘Why I Stayed’, bring up topics that most people are often afraid to talk about but let’s people know that they are not alone.

As far as entertainment, you had demonstrations from Drea Kelly of VH1’s Hollywood Ex’s. Tamara Braxton, Diggy Simmons, Tank, Raheem Devaughn, Syleena Johnson, Lil Mo and more. Originally TI was not set to perform but he surprised the crowd with an impromptu performance of ‘Mediocre’ and ‘If It Ain’t About The Money’. Tamar performed all of her album favorites and Diggy was mauled by a group of tweens. Lol, seriously, he is a brave young man. Raheem, Syleena and Tank also put on great shows but I will let you be the judge.
