(Washington, D.C. – April 5, 2014) Alexia Velazquez had the distinct honor of being invited to perform on the main stage at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. at the Rock! Like A Girl™Concert sponsored by BET’s hit television awards show, Black Girls Rock (BGR).
At the Kennedy Center, Alexia and 3 other young female artists performed the Nia Simone classic “Four Women”, which was originally performed by 4 well known R&B recording artists at the 2010 BGR Awards. At the first BGR Awards show in 2010 Alexia sang background for Jill Scott. However, to keep the routine fresh, Alexia replaced 2 of the 4 singing parts with a spoken word and rap solo making the production more youth oriented.
Visionary entrepreneur and cultural curator, Beverly Bond launched the concert and conversation series ROCK! LIKE A GIRL™ and teamed up with the Kennedy Center’s One Mic: Hip-Hop Festival to produce the first installment that will highlight women’s contributions to hip-hop. Ms. Bond was instrumental in having Alexia and the other artists participate in this concert after seeing them perform this number at a workshop.
