*** Rain Raphael~~~ Energy In Motion ***

Aside

The Drama on stage was from years of knowing that her dreams, passions and hard work would one day bring her here.
Live on stage with the energy of a Broadway Play, Rain Raphael and her Awesome Dance Team brought everyone to their feet. Shouting her name as the Blue lights turned up to bright lights, showing an energetic group. Their moves were so well choreographed you just knew you were on Broadway, but we were in The Bijou Theater in Bridgeport, CT.

Starting as I did was to let you know how unknown talent can work so hard to move up the ladder of success. Unless someone with a large money backing get to know them, or a producer of well known status see or hear them their talent goes totally unnoticed. Then sometimes when they do find them, they stifle their talent. They are not who they were trying to be before the money and people not knowing what’s in their Hearts are about. I totally understand you have no time to baby-sit their talent. But for them to stay down because they didn’t fall into that category of century old rules. Should not allow talent like Rain and all the other talents that I have featured to go unnoticed.
She is well known, unlike others I have featured. But she had to pay her dues as well. I can not go into any length of her life on a blog. She does and she does it well on her website which you should visit and learn about this Amazingly talented young lady.
Talking about her does not give you the energy that she gives when she sings. Ballads as well as upbeat rap. She even gave us a sneak peek of An Awesome Video, and songs from her newly released album “LadyBug “. She has Talent that should not be Harness!!!

Please visit her website and social media sites and she will fill in the blanks and then some. The link below shows her, Acclaim,Bio, Calender,Audio,Photos,Tech,Video and contact information, all on one site.
