It is a real pleasure to cover, for the second year, the taping of the award-winning television special, A Evening of Stars that highlights the efforts of the United Negro College Fund. This year the taping was at the Pasadena Civic auditorium, and the days of photography were long but exhilarating.
I’ve long had a crush on Nancy Wilson, and this assignment was the most time I’ve ever spent around this intelligently alluring legend. When I was introduced to her, she leaned on me and I felt ethereal for at least another day.
In the two years of covering the taping the AEOS events, I photographed the related symposiums, activities of the college presidents and corporate sponsors, the UNCF/AOES signage, corporate sponsor signage, theater and television production, rehearsals, celebrity photo-ops and press conferences. This year’s honoree is Smokey Robinson. After the taping of the show and Smokey’s press conference, I transferred images to disk and uploaded a few. There was still had time and energy to catch the last of the after-show party where I had a dance and a drink.
