HEINEKEN'S RED SOUL STAR EVENT: COMMON, MALINDA & D-NICE, BRANDY, FREE, OMAR EPPS & KEISHA, TRUTH HURTS

A generous handful of celebs made their presence known at Heineken's Red Star Soul concert series event in Los Angeles on August 15, 2007. Rapper Common performed as well as Raheem and Chrisette Michelle. Other celebs in attendance included: actor Omar Epps and his wife Keisha (former member of R&B group Total), who is evidently expecting ; actress Malinda Williams and her longtime boo, D-Nice; Brandy, MC Lyte, Idris Elba, Tichina Arnold, former host of 106 & Park, Free and someone who we (at least I) haven't seen in a month of Sundays also made a rare, candid appearance...that someone happens to be one-hit wonder (for the life of me I can't remember the name of her one and only semi-hit...and I'm too tired to look it up) Truth Hurts. Wild 'N Out cast members DJ D-Wrek and Affion Crockett were there as well. Was I the only one who died of laughter when Fabulous told him he looks like Toys 'R Us' mascot, Geoffry the Giraffe! LOL!

The event also recognizes a member of the local music community at each tour stop with the Heineken Independent Achiever award. The award, which was established in 2006, honors individuals who demonstrate the hustle, integrity and drive necessary to be successful while inspiring others. Eight Heineken Independent Achiever award recipients will accept their award on-stage during the Heineken Red Star Soul concert in their hometown.

"Heineken Red Star Soul was created to honor the achievements of soul and R&B musicians and others who inspire others with their talent and tenacity," said Heineken USA brand director Andy Glaser. "With our concert performances and by honoring our Heineken Independent Achievers, we salute luminaries and rising stars who continue to make valuable contributions to soul and R&B music. "The concert series comes as Common celebrates the release of his latest album, Finding Forever.
