Day three in NYC was absolutely incredible and certainly the highlight of my trip. I worked the red carpet and press room for the 34th Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

The ceremony took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  The arena is lovely and has a capacity of 19,000.

It was a magical moment seeing the stunning arena arranged perfectly with tables, chairs and beautiful lighting before the doors opened to the public.

It was a dream come true as I was able to see Janet Jackson get inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for her incredible body of work.  I have been a Janet Jackson fan throughout her entire career as an actress and singer.  I remember Janet’s acting roles from “Good Times” to Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?”

When the “Control” album was released in 1986, my life changed forever.  At this point, I thought I was Janet!  I knew the words to every song and the choreography to every single music video.  I was fifteen years old at the time and I could relate SO well to this album.  I wanted to be in control of my own life and I certainly had my own mind!  I was ready to make real decisions in my life (LOL).  Janet inspired me to sing, dance and act as a teen.  I took every class I could possibly squeeze into my day after school at a local community center.

I have amazing memories that will last me a lifetime from day three in NYC!

TIP:  On your next trip to NYC.  Don’t forget to visit Georgetown Cupcake at 111 Mercer Street for a sweet treat.  I highly recommend the red velvet cupcake.
