The night belonged to Ne-Yo last night in Atlanta as he co-hosted Compound Entertainment's 1st Annual Masquerade Charity Ball for charity, with Frank Ski. 200 guests were wined and dined in high style at Atlanta's historic Biltmore hotel. Ne-Yo performed an electrifying show that showed why R. Kelly was so shook and kicked him off the tour. Ne-Yo had no hard feelings and even dedicated his next single "Go On Girl" to Kells!
Jamahl King and his staff at STEPS Events pulled out all stops to make this a special evening for all. The ballroom was decorated like something out a great Gatsby movie with draped silk hanging on the walls and gold plated dinnerware.
Big shout out to the staff of Compound Entertainment for organizing another great event! Shouts to Big Barry Florence and Katena Keno for doing their thing on the publicity end. Atlanta Falcons star Warrick Dunn told me he was a fan of Sandrarose.com!
Even though Ne-Yo tore the house down, the highlight of the night for me was when that arrogant Atlanta photographer Jimi "Albino" Flixx was bodily ejected from the premises. Dude is so obnoxious! He thinks he can invite himself to private events, eat up the food, partake of the wine and still act like a jerk! He found out when he brushed the dirt off his shoulders in the parking lot!
Special thanks to Ne-Yo for the personal invite!
