Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
This is not a cliche!
Have you ever worked on a project that was someone else’s vision? Well I recently had the privilege of working with some dynamic people on Ralph McDaniels 35th Anniversary Of Video Music Box in association and with the support of the King of Kings Foundation of Jamaica Queens. Ralph McDaniels was responsible providing a platform for hip hop and old school artists to have their videos seen and music heard since 1983.
Furthermore, he produced videos as well for NAS, Black Moon, and Bell, Biv, Devoe (BBD), just to name a few. Raised in Brooklyn for a number of years, Ralph would eventually move to Queens. After a successful event celebrating 35 years of VMB on July 7th at Coney Island featuring artists such as Fat Joe, KRS One, Nice & Smooth, Special Ed among others. With his connection to Queens and the King of Kings Foundation both Ralph and Lance thought it not robbery to include pioneer hip hop artists performing at Roy Wilkins Park in Jamaica, Queens.
The planning went on over a period of a month or so; where Lance Feurtado and Ralph McDaniels brought together groups of professionals and confidants to realize Ralph’s vision of celebrating the great artists that came out of the borough of Queens. Furthermore, through built relationships both men were confident that this event would be one for the history books. Featured artists included Kid N Play, Sweet Tee, Keith Murray, Mr. Cheeks, Frick N Frack, DJ’s SMV, Kid Capri and Red Alert! Elected officials, the community and a host of others supported the event.
It was an amazing day with nothing but love as we supported Ralph McDaniels in realizing his vision with a phenomenal team; too many to name...You know who you are and together we created something great! All honor and glory to God. A big thanks to Ralph McDaniels, The King of Kings Foundation, all of the Bike and SUV clubs, and the entire team! Teamwork makes the dream work and we’re just getting started. Stay tuned!
