Jenee Darden speaking at Creative Mornings I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book  and building my speaking career!  You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me.

Disney's NEW Princess and The Frog Trailer

The Princess and the Frog won't debut until December but Disney is already full steam ahead with promoting the movie. To the left is a teaser poster I saw on The Young, Black and Fabulous.

  1. Hey Cocoafly that was a great trailer. Who is the voice behind the princess?

  2. Anika Noni Rose from "Dreamgirls" is voicing Princess Tiana.

  3. Oh my gosh I can't wait to see this! I just showed the trailer to my daughters, and they are excited too! Rose's voice is beautiful. I just looked up info on the Frog, and he is played by Brazilian actor Bruno Campos.

  4. Thanks for the info Diana! I'm excited too.
