PUT ON YOUR CROWN AUDIO BOOK: REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_37NdiuOlwuo/TAXiUblHiAI/AAAAAAAAG2k/lqi_YkNOBjY/s1600/headphonesman.jpg
NATIONAL AUDIO BOOK MONTH GIVEAWAY
GIVEAWAY ENDED
PUT ON YOUR CROWN
AUDIO BOOK
Life Changing Moments on the Path to Queendom
BY QUEEN LATIFAH
AND SAMANTHA MARSHALL
READ BY QUEEN LATIFAH

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:

Modeled after Maria Shriver's Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah's goal with Put On Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem. A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown's assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the "hollywood ideal" of what a confident beautiful woman should look like.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Queen Latifah was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey. The Queen got her first break in music when a demo tape featuring one of her raps made its way to Tommy Boy Records. She was signed and immediately became a hit. She won the Best New Artist Award in 1990 for her album "All Hail the Queen" which also went platinum. The second single from the album, "Ladies First," was eventually named by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock 'n' Roll. By the time her second album "Nature of a Sista'" came out in 1991, Queen Latifah had begun investing in small businesses in her neighborhood, and acting both in television and movies. After the death of her brother and a soured deal with Tommy Boy, The Queen released her third album, "Black Reign", and founded Flavor Unit Records and Management. She also landed a regular spot on Living Single and went on to star in a plethora of feature films including: Set It Off, The Perfect Holiday, Taxi, and Bringing Down the House.

MY REVIEW:


Watch for my review later today when I will also feature and have a giveaway for the book of PUT ON YOUR CROWN.

Just testing the old blog out here with the Queen to be sure it is up and running (which is more than I can say for old Bingo today!)

For some reason I was not able to pull the website up but, I have always enjoyed Queen Latifah's honesty and confidence and am very anxious to either read or listen to this book. I love to read & I have a long commute so either would be wonderful!

I was impressed to see that after the Queen released her third album, "Black Reign", she founded Flavor Unit Records and Management. She is a very smart lady an icon for all women from preteen to 100 yrs old. Also she was 1st hip hop artist to be crowned with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Frame in 2006. Way to go Queen.

The Here button didn't work, I just like her because she's never let her average and not model thin body stop her or bother her.
