A little bit of Brazil came to Atlanta earlier this week with a Red Carpet Premier of Rio 2 at Regal Cinemas in Atlantic Station. Jackson and I had a great time at the Red Carpet Premier and there were several celebrity attendees including Christoper ‘Ludacris’ Bridges and his daughter Karma, Atlanta Falcons own, Matt Bryant & CNN Reporter Sanjay Gupta with his children. One of my favorite recording artists Janelle Monae was all smiles as she danced on the red carpet to a samba beat with director Carlos Saldanha. Janelle Monae played the drums and showed while she remains one of Billboards Artist to Watch. Great music and beautiful dancers courtesy of Dance Brasil. No press pass for this one so once again the view from my seat (kinda). But I’m one step closer to actually getting to meet (or at least get a really good photo of/ with Ms. Janelle Monae so I can maintain my cool auntie status for my beautiful niece Naimah who may just be her #1 fan up in Massachusetts . Ok so who recognizes the beautiful young lady on the right? Walking Dead fans might remember her as Meghan Chambler from the Walking Dead. In real life miss Meyrick Murphy is both incredibly talented and incredibly cute. And she was nice too. Look out for this one. I expect we will be seeing a lot more of her. She was so sweet and the girls got style. I would love to have a photo shoot with her one day. How cute are they? Two sets of twins and a 19 month old. Mom and dad definitely have their hands full. It was great to see some old friends and make some new ones at this event, and the storyline and music for Rio2 were fantastic. Blu is back!!! and although he has just learned how to fly Blu and family are heading to the Amazon in search of other Blue Macaws. This city bird may be out-of-place in the Amazon but he’s willing to do whatever it takes for his family. If you’re looking for something to do with the family this weekend, head to the box office and check out Rio 2. Young and old in the audience were laughing and dancing in their seats. This is a great feel good lighthearted movie. If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out the Rio 2 trailer. Take a look (listen).
