Flashback – National Vibes Star Project Award

Too bad this project, spearheaded by poet and promoter Knowledge couldn’t have been sustained; it was a good way to celebrate the creative arts – primarily the performing arts but because many songs require lyricists also the literary arts; kind of our version of the Grammys/Peoples Choice Awards. The Grammys because it was an industry award with fun performances and lots of glamour and excitement, People’s Choice because it was voted on by the people. It didn’t have the kind of funding/support needed to keep going, though. And isn’t that always the case. Here’s a look back:
