Ne-Yo is having the best year ever. With the rave reviews from his performance in Red Tails, to his new position as the VP of A&R at Motown, being a mentor on NBC’s The Voice and now the partnership with Malibu Rum for his new spirit Malibu Red. The eclectic mix of Malibu and silver tequila is the perfect match.
Myself along with a long list of VIPs including Tracee Ellis Ross, Kelis, Estelle, Brandy, Ray J, Jill Marie Jones, Elise Neal, Marcellus Wiley, Carmen Electra, Vanessa Simmons and more enjoyed the spirit as well as a loads of amazing food and performances by Marsha Ambrosius and Miguel.
Unbeknownst to me it was Brandy’s birthday who sat very solemn in a corner all night being coddled by her brother Ray J. As we all know, Whitney Houston was Brandy’s idol and it must have been extremely heartbreaking hearing of Houston’s death on the day of her birth. Marsha Ambrosius lent comforting words as she sang happy birthday to the singer.
DJ Mos was on the wheels and did a great tribute to Houston as party goers danced and celebrated her life until the wee hours of the morning. Check out pictures below.
Malibu Red will be available in stores soon and look out for Ne-Yo’s new album The Cracks in Mr. Perfect in Spring/Summer 2012.
