New York, NY (www.QBCNYC.org) – Queer Black Cinema’s (QBC), “Party With A Cause Fundraiser” which took place on February 19, 2009 was a night to remember! Funds went towards the 3rd Annual Queer Black Cinema International Film Festival 2010. Performances included Baron also known as B dot performing songs from his sophomore album, “Celebrity.” Newcomer, Eric Joppy also performs and R&B recording artist, Jesse O. The performances were hosted by award-winning radio personal, DJ Baker from Da Do Dirty Show (QNation.FM).

The evening started off with DJ Unknown spinning on the one’s and two’s getting the audience ready for outstanding performances. DJ Baker opens up the event with his charming charismatic personality. Baron then rocked the stage with hit song, “Party with b.” He then slowed it down with “Birds” off the same album. Baron surprised Angel L. Brown, QBC Founder and Executive Producer by asking her to join him on stage singing the chorus of the song. However, Angel did not disappoint the audience with her beautiful voice. “This is one of my favorite songs off the album [Celebrity]. I absolutely love this song so I figured why not hum the chorus. I had a blast!” states Angel L. Brown.

Eric Joppy then made his grand entrance with his rock stylish attire which included a golden masked, black leather pants and a button down checker shirt open for all to see his tone body. His voice defiantly matched his style – hot! The crowed went wild when he begins to whine and sing popular song, “Just Because”. “Both Eric and Baron killed it! I’m glad I came out to support QBC. What they are doing for the community is wonderful.” John Peterson – Audience member. The surprise of the night was Jesse O singing Happy Birthday to good friend and now colleague, Angel L. Brown. Jesse Afriyie (Jesse O) has joined the QBC team as Co-Producer/Consultant over the music department. Jesse is working on his sophomore album, which is set to hit stores in March/April 2010.

However, despite their obvious chemistry and fireworks in bed, Faybien’s insecurities have him looking for the door. Can a budding romance and a few good friends keep him from making the biggest mistake of his life?
