So I ran into this woman…..

It was suggested to us that we go to Bullets Bar in the 7th Ward of New Orleans. Kermit Ruffins plays every Tuesday and being that one of the kids was doing his documentary on jazz and music it was recommended that we check it out.  He was crazy and the crowed loved him, but it wasn’t until this girl, this phenomenal young woman, stepped up to the microphone, that we were blown away.

When she was finished and the instructors, Colleen and Becky, and I came out of our daze, we knew we had to talk to her. She agreed that night to give me an interview for my on documentary and from there the rest was history.

After the Interview she agreed to allow me to film her preparing for a performance.  So I went to her apartment and followed her through her steps to becoming stage ready.
