We were beyond excited to be asked to be the photogs for Usher’s New Look 2010 World Leadership Awards. The event is honorarily being chaired by Usher, and President Bill Clinton! We can’t wait. What an honor to have a small piece of involvement with this group.
Ric shot the Host Committee event at the Four Seasons last night and it was such a great mix of smart, involved, talented people all coming together for this great organization. My personal 80’s favorite was seeing Jasmine Guy (yes, Whitley Gilbert!) as a grown woman and involved committee member. No, she didn’t bring Dwayne Wayne with her…
The mission of Usher’s New Look is to empower youth as they use their talents and creativity to become corporate and community leaders. It is such an incredible organization, we encourage you to get involved is you can. If you want more info: www.ushersnewlook.org.
The event is being held at the Cobb Energy Center on August 6th, and they are expecting over 2500 in attendance. No, we are not going to (thank goodness) photograph the 2500 people there…just work on documenting a behind the scenes look at what goes into such an incredible event, the amazing people who work so hard to put it together, and the amazing kids it will benefit.
Stay tuned, we’ll be sure to share more as the event gets closer. Yeah, yeah! (sorry, I couldn’t resist)
