Sunday evening, July 24, 2016, I attended the Ms. NCC (National Capital Cities) pageant held at The Rock. Pageant founder, organizer, and promotor, Bruce Williams (aka Jalissa Andrea Michaels - The Patti Labelle of Arizona) was on site adding another successful pageant to her resume. The evening was filled with some fierce contestants and a host of fabulous entertainers.
Stepping down from her reign as Ms Black NCC was Regina Gazelle (personal friend of The J Spot) and all around awesome individual. The four contestants vying for a crown included Beyoncé Black, Ki Ki Andrews, Shania Sky, and Demi LeRay.
The contestants had to make their way through the standard items associated with pageants. Sports wear, evening gown, talent competition and on-stage question. These girls brought their A game. They all wanted a title and they wanted it bad. Hems were tucked, shoes were polished, and wigs were snatched to the Gods.
Many moons ago I was a title holder in the system. I was Mr. Southern Regional 1998. It is great to see that the system is still tack and is not slowing down. Kudos to the new title holders, and thank you to the previous title holders who spectacularly represented during their reign.
