Fantasia Barrino held a listening session for her recently released “Back to Me” project at Justin’s in Atlanta on Friday (Sept. 3rd).

Big Boi headlined the “Heineken Inspire” Atlanta Concert Series last Saturday (September 4, 2010 ) in Atlanta, Georgia. The concert featured Big Boi, Jermaine Dupri, Bun B, DJ Trauma and Goodie Mob and was held at Opera nightclub.

“I’ve been growing my hair since 9th grade. It’s time for a new me. The fact that my hair will go to someone that needs it more than me, makes me feel great about my decision.”
Locks for Love is a non-profit organization that accepts donated hair to provide hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children under the age of 21 suffering from long-term illnesses that cause hair loss.
