Ciara covers the December 2008 issue of Right-On magazine with somewhat of a different look. She is really going all out with her “Go Girl” glamour image. Love it! Especially the throwback POW! doorknocker earrings created by Melody Ehsani. The photo was captured by Atlanta celebrity photographer Derek Blanks.
Ciara also took a moment yesterday to share her election night memories of Barack Obama’s historic win:
The 23-year-old spent election night going back and forth from inside an Atlanta rehearsal studio to the hallway to check the results. “Finally, when rehearsals were over I just sat in the lobby area where the TVs are and watched the speeches. Just took it all in.
“I’ve just been feeling this sense of pride, like for days now,” she said. “Not just because of the history of the first black president — but because I just believe he will be a great president. Black people didn’t just vote for him, all ethnicities did. And I think that’s because Barack Obama sees us all as one. All Americans.
“I didn’t cry last night when I was watching his speech, but when I was driving here to rehearsal today, they were playing it on the radio with [contemporary gospel singer] Marvin Sapp’s ‘Never Would Have Made It’ underneath, and I just started boo-hooing.” (source)
