Angela White is a multi-talented, multi-faceted poet. She sings, has arranged music, directed choral groups and is spiritually and socially motivating. The short list does not include her passion for photography, her willingness to assist and volunteer to benefit others, and her love for family. Angela's first book of poetry, Inspired & Wired, a mature composition of poetry and life contemplations, is proof that the intertwining of confidence and faith produces explosive, irrefutable results. The passion she displays for her work is contagious. Angela is currently working on her second book, Passionate Inspirations, from the heart of a poet, and continues to speak, sing, write, motivate and love. For more information, access


 Known to her fans simply as Jacnique (pronounced Zsa’nique), this San Francisco songstress embodies all the qualities of a natural superstar. She is an avid songwriter, pristine vocalist, and a runway renaissance woman. Her sultry soul music represents a harmonic groove in a world full of ambient noise and sound.  Before she knew it, she began making quite a name for herself on the Bay Area club scene performing alongside well know jazz guitarist, Tony DeWayne. Soon after, she was gracing stages and receiving critical acclaim from Hollywood, CA to Las Vegas, NV and in her home town of San Francisco, CA. In 2006 Jacnique started her own independent record label and publishing company, SirenFire Music Works and SirenFire Music Publishing. The dynamic diva has recently put the finishing touches on her debut CD entitled, “Trial By Fire." This CD is an eclectic blend of Sultry Soul, Smooth Jazz and Love Songs.

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Memorial Weekend at Val Verde, Ca

One of the best things happened to me! I was able to fullfill a bucket list dream which was to put on a community Music and Cultural Festival. Although there is room for improvement I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made this year. It takes support of family and friends to keep me motivated and pushing towards my goals and vision.
I am grateful. There will be more festivals curated by me in the on going years. The world is as good as you make it. Stay focused, stay positive and set your intention.

Please do yourself a favor and research the historic relevance of "Black Palm Springs" in the 1920's during Jim Crow.

This annual festival is not just about having a good time it's about historical awareness in underserved communities.

Come out next year for free camping, free swimming, yoga, live music and community!

I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …
