Songz decided to pair up with GREY GOOSE Cherry Noir throughout his “Chapter V” nationwide tour, so the heartthrob treated a few invited guests to his VIP Suite for cocktails before, during and after the show.
Also spotted sipping on a few signature drinks were radio personality/Grey Goose spokesperson Kenny Burns and his lovely wife Jessica, old school R&B crooner Case, Kevin Liles and more.
The album, which achieved Platinum status, featured hits like “Happily Ever After” (which reached #3 on the R&B charts and #15 on the Hot 100) and “Faded Pictures,” (released April 20, 1999), which featured R&B singer Joe and reached #3 on the R&B charts and #10 on the Hot 100.
For those of you who may not know… the video for “Happily Ever After” featured a young up & coming singer by the name of Beyoncé in the video as Case’s love interest.
I say all of that to say…
Case is another singer who’s followed his musical path and has transplanted in the “A” AND I was lucky enough to receive a phone call from the singer who gave me a personal serenade of my favorite song.
God puts people in your life for many reasons and while I still sometimes feel like I’m following an unknown path, it was Karyn’s co-sign of my integrity during the 2010 Essence Music Fesival in New Orleans that led to Tyler Perry giving me his seal of approval (and the rest is history!)

Because we have our own terminology:
“ATL, SWATS [South West Atlanta Too Strong], Old NAT’L, and, of course, ATLien — all invented by Dungeon Family artists. Also, true Atlantans also know that the only ‘T’ found in ‘Atlanna’ comes in a glass with lots of sugar and a lil lemon.”
