A REAL DIVA…
I know Beyonce told you that a Diva is a female version of a hustler, and I know there are a ton of acronyms for the word DIVA. However, I don’t mean to bust bubbles but…a DIVA is a Female WHO CAN SING HER TAIL OFF…in fact to go even deeper…A TRUE DIVA is an Opera Singer, who SINGS her tail off!!!! Meet my friend KAREN SLACK who has traveled the ENTIRE globe singing on stages that laymen will only read about!!!

She was recently acclaimed in her small but POWERFUL role in Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls”….for she was the DIVA who MURDERED her solo in La Donna in Viola…The AMAZING Opera scene in the Movie…
Karen Slack is a graduate of Creative and Performing Arts High School…(so am I)
If you have not seen the movie yet…do check it out…if you have, go back and check out Karen’s riveting performance…
Here’s some photos of Karen at work…
