Sometimes, I feel that the work I put into this newsletter, which normally takes me two to three weeks each month, is totally in vain. If this is true, no one will respond to this post. If it is not true, some of the 297 members will respond. Let’s see. ~ Diva Joan Cartwright

Ladies and gentlemen, FYI, WIJSF dues come due every March 1. I’m sure you know how difficult it is for most of us in this downturned economy. I want to thank Lydia Harris and Peggy Duquesnel Malbron for paying their dues, last month. I encourage you to pay your dues in support of the work we do through this organization. Just go to www.wijsf.org or www.wijsf.com/join.htm and pay online. If you prefer to mail a check payable to Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc., just let me know and I’ll email you our address. Also, we now have 273 members. With your help, we can get to 300 by the year’s end, so please invite ONE friend to join us. Remember, they do not need to be a musicians to join us in our mission to promote women musicians, globally!
We’re almost at 350. Let’s pump it up over the weekend! Share this petition with all your contacts, please. Thanks, Joan – http://www.change.org/petitions/women-in-jazz-south-florida-inc-hold-a-symposium-on-women-in-arts

Cellist Shana Tucker Bassist Teja Lanise Filmmaker Janice Roshalle Littlejohn
On June 22, Téja Lanise (bass) performed with Jonelle Monae at the Hollywood Bowl and STEVIE WONDER walked onstage for a surprise performance! He SANG and PLAYED! Téja declared, “It was AMAZING! I’m still in shock! It was all I could do to contain myself onstage! Of course, I cried after the show was over. I’m just SO grateful for all these amazing, unexpected blessings in the past 6 months! I could have never dreamt this!”
Prior to being on stage with Brandy and Prince, while performing with mega-star Janelle Monae, whose group Jamanati was featured on The David Letteman Show on June 11, Téja toured with Musique Soulchild, and was a part of Amazing Musicwomen with Joan Cartwright, in 2012.
Congratulations to Dr. Donna Singer.
Auditions are over for me with NBC The Voice.
I am very happy to say that I made it to the 4th round out of 6.
It’s been a fun, crazy, wouldn’t change it for the world ‘ride’. Thanks everyone for the love and support. Next stop, international jazz festival in Nebraska with The Doug Richards Trio, not a bad gig.
Also, Donna got hired for gig in Pompano, FL, and Jazziz Jazz Club/Restaurant in Boca Raton, FL, Entertainment Manager asked me for my press kit.
Both are great establishments in South Florida, Hooray!
