GIRL6 Exclusive Report Featuring News About Teddy, Patti, Peabo, Berry and More...

GIRL6 reporting to Mr. Clark Dark (oh, ‘cuse me-- Mr. Undercover Man!)

More little bits of information to lay on you. This is what's going on over the next few weeks on the East Coast, specifically the Philadelphia-Tri-State Area. Here's what I most recently "heard" and thought juicy enough to pass on to you and the folks at YTW:

Looks like Teddy Pendergrass is going to be honored in Philadelphia. He will be honored by the Urban League of Philadelphia during their 4th Annual Song of Equality Gala. The event is happening Saturday, June 17th at the beautiful Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Peabo Bryson is scheduled to perform. (Ahh, this Girl remembers the days…TP screaming atcha and Peabo with his fione self. Ladies you remember that perfect Afro he had back in the day?? …ok, lemme stop)

Also upcoming up and sure to be smokin’ in the City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection don’t forget!) for June 2006:

The Rhythm & Blues Foundations’ Pioneer Awards take place in Philadelphia on June 29th. Smokey Robinson and Patti LaBelle (Patti! Patti!) will be hosting. The honorees include Frankie Beverly & Maze, The Delfonics, singer Bettye LaVette, Songwriter/Producer Thom Bell and Motown Founder Berry Gordy, who is getting the Lifetime Achievement Award.
