On Friday April 23 Crossroads own
Miss Danielle, with all the style and grace that she carries with her everywhere
she goes, represented us in the Ms Gay Mississippi/USA Pageant in Memphis,
Tennessee. After going up against MAJOR competition she was the third runner-up.
Her talent was totally killer. One of the judges was Anita Ward, famous
for the multi-million selling song "Ring My Bell". And the true Diva, Ms
Ward, was seen brushing tears while Miss Danielle was performing. Let me
repeat! A lady that sold more than 10 MILLION records of a single song,
cried at Danielle's performance. We should all be proud of her and she
should be truly proud of herself. In front of an audience that wasn't her
own, where her first time on stage people talking and not paying attention,
she persevered until the last note of her talent when the house rose in
a cheering standing ovation. She showed a class so seldom seen and she
did it not just for herself or her Choctaw heritage. She also did it for
us, the Crossroads family, and I for one thank her. You are truly a lady.
I would also like to thank the Back
Street Bar for making us feel welcome and especially Devine Enterprises
for a most impressive Pageant.
