On Location: Gabrielle Union Awarded ‘Lexus Pursuit Of Perfection’ In Dallas At Verses & Flow
Last night, Lexus held the Verses & Flow Live private event in Dallas, a unique event that was created to honor talented up and coming music artists and spoken word poets. I had the pleasure of being on location for this event and snapped a few pics along the way! The MC for the event was comedianne Ebony Steele, co-host of The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. The highlight of the evening came when Lexus presented their 2012 Lexus Pursuit Of Perfection award to this year’s recipient, actress Gabrielle Union.
Recorded words of congratulations were shown, from actor Hill Harper, who was last year’s recipient, and Gabrielle‘s boyfriend NBA star Dwyane Wade (who sang a small bit of Vesta‘s Congratulations for Gabrielle, eliciting AWWWWWWs from the women in the crowd). During her acceptance speech, Gabrielle talked about the murder of Trayvon Martin, saying that she has had difficulty sleeping and forgetting the cries for help Trayvon made during the 911 phone call. As an avid activist in the fight against breast cancer, Gabrielle accepted her award on behalf of “those who continue to fight”, whether it be for justice, for cancer research or for life. There was also a performance by up & coming artist Luke James! Check out LOTS more pictures from the event and see if Lexus will bring Verses & Flow to your city, when you continue…
