I love me some Brenda Braxton.
I’ve known the Tony Award nominated actress for more than a decade and like a fine wine, she just gets better and better. I was lucky to do the CHICAGO the Musical thing with Brenda many times. Most recently we played in the CHICAGO sandbox last summer in Sacramento where she stopped the show night after night starring as “Velma Kelly.” Sings like a dream; dances like a demon; and can I say “funnnnnnny?”
In addition to her appearances on Broadway in Smokey Joe’s Cafe, CHICAGO, Cats, Dreamgirls and more, she is the founder and owner of BBRAXTON: Exceptional Grooming for Exceptional Men, a men’s grooming salon in New York City.
The salon is the first of its kind and occupies 2,000 sq. ft. of storefront in one of the city’s first “green” luxury high rise condominiums. The salon complements this evolution by providing the atmosphere of a traditional gentlemen’s club, barber shop and new age spa; offering services such as hot towel straight razor shave, hair cuts and hair styling, body massage and integrated skin care. Patrons can catch up on the news, style trends, watch sports or relax and listen to R&B or Jazz music streams.
BBraxton is now getting ready to launch it’s own product line. And Miss Brenda is running an IndieGoGo campaign to help raise funds for the product launch.
Here’s a link to the campaign – I’m going to ask you to please go take a look.
I’m a fan of crowdfunding on The Randy Report, and I’m a big fan of Brenda’s.
Everyone has a dream of some kind; and everyone can use a little help reaching for that dream.
Maybe you saw Brenda on Broadway. Maybe you always wanted to start your OWN salon. Or maybe you wanted to see whatever dream YOU had get a boost.
Just thought I’d ask folks to take a look. If you have it, if you’d like to be a part of helping someone else’s dream – pledge a few bucks. I did.
Remember the old saying “Do unto others…”
If you ever wanted someone to help you out, maybe this is how you pay it forward.
