Kelly Rowland at Boys and Girls Club in Atlanta

Grammy Award winning superstar Kelly Rowland teamed up with Claritin and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to revitalize the park at the Salvation Army BGCA Bellwood Club location on the westside.

Rowland, 35, is the National Ambassador for the BGCA. Her mission is to make over outdoor spaces at Boys and Girls Clubs in three communities in need.

Sandrarose.com was invited to attend the exclusive Media Event to kick off the revitalization project on Tuesday, April 26th, where Rowland spoke to the children.

Rowland came prepared! She arrived from the airport wearing a blue dress and heels. But she quickly changed into her favorite white Nikes to play in the dirt with the children. She wore very little makeup and her natural hair was tied up in a bun.

One little girl broke down and cried when she saw Kelly. All of the children were so happy to see her. They loved on her and hugged her the entire time she was there. Rowland is the true star of Destiny's Child!

Afterwards, Rowland waved at the kids and said she had a flight to catch to resume her mommy duties with her son, Titan Jewell, back home in California.

Also attending the media event was Jonathan Field, M.D., who is a clinical allergist and member of the Claritin C.L.E.A.R. Council. Dr. Field discussed how allergies can impact young people's ability to enjoy time outdoors. He explained how seasonal allergy irritations and symptoms can be easily managed with Claritin.

Thanks to Stephanie Ross at Edelman.com for the invite! And thanks to celebrity photographer Prince Williams of ATLpics.net for the awesome photos!

  • HIS4EVA

    kelly has really grown up to be a gorgeous woman

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Question: why would a happily married rapper request condoms in his rider? Are those for him or his entourage?

  • SummerBaby

    I like that dress too! Blue is one of my favorite colors.

  • SummerBaby

    Girl! I was wondering the same.

  • Yoni

    What rapper did this? :concerned look:

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I ironically got me a white skater dress from the LEAST likeliest of places last summer for our white party at the family reunion.

    Sears.

    I was cutting through the Crabtree store and saw it. It is CAYUTE.

  • Afiya

    Awww, thats so nice; bless their hearts.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    They had them in ALL colors. I just needed white pacifically.

  • SummerBaby

    ATL rapper that has custody of his break baby.

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    Not pacifically? I might have to search their website to see if they're on clearance this year.

  • Kanyade

    Such a good look. Love this kind of effort--improving parks. And she looks at home mingling with the chirren. Nice :)

  • PettyEyezPrime

    *GASP*

  • It’s Taurus Season

    The very FIRST one to ever say to respect? HIS NAME. When he told Tamika the baby mama...“Respectfully...my name is Chris"

  • Yoni

    I LOVE this color blue....on EVERYTHING! I don't know if it's royal or primary blue. It's always made clothes pop! Lime green goes really well with it or hot pink.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Lawd Im such a sports fan I call the shit Duke Blue. To differentiate it from Carolina Blue.

    *cries*

  • Yoni

    They said BUSTA was the first to ever say it. #pass the KAH-VAH-SEE-AYE! LOL

  • melissaisasnob

    "Rowland is the true star of Destiny’s Child!"

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    He's much too busy to hit Walgreens and get some for himself. I'm sure his entourage is too busy too. :rolls eyes: I need folks to get over Magnum every nignog don't need a magnum. That's the best marketing strategy ever by a condom company. I don't want you or your loose azz condom.

  • Yoni

    And yellow!

  • Yoni

    I know. But is he a FOB, tho'?

I just started back fooling with Sears maybe like 5-6 years ago. Dub20 got some FLY ass shoes from there for a formal. Again. By accident. We were in there for tool for my ex-husband lol. She went to go walk around and was like I gotta have em.
