After taking a super long time off from blogging, I am writing this quick post to say that I will not likely give future updates in this location. This is mainly because I already keep you pretty well informed about what's going on with me musically via my Reverbnation Status updates, Video posts, and through Fanreach Newsletter updates. So, stay tuned and I look forward to bringing you more cool music and content. Peace!
Long time no blog: Go to my Youtube channel and see the latest updates, plus what's in store for 2011. Peace!
Just a quick reminder if you haven't already heard: 1) My radio show is every Monday night from 8 pm to 9 pm 2) The location is still streaming@:www.fm881whpr.com (w/a media player) 3) I still play ONLY music that is created by artists, producers, etc. in the 313. All kinds of music welcome, as long as it's positive! 4) We are no longer broadcast on the local Detroit/Highland Park radio dial: FM 88.1 5) I am ALWAYS looking for sponsors! For super cheap you can have you commercial aired during my show(s), and we do have an international audience. If you are interested in supporting this quality programming, contact me. 6) All of my guests are entrepreneurs working in the 313/Detroit city, and I am always looking for more great guests. Contact me! 7) While my guests and music must be in Detroit, I welcome sponsors from anywhere in the world, individual or businesses. 8) And finally, see more at my Youtube site:Angela Celeste May
Every Sunday, beginning this week, July 11, tune in to WATCH my new program, Celeste Productions, Inc. Presents: Made in Detroit. Celebrating Detroit's Entrepreneurial Spirit. 9 PM to 10 PM, at www.fm881whpr.com online, or if you are in Detroit, you can listen on the radio, at 88.1 fm.
Send me an email if you would like to be a sponsor, know a Detroit-based artist you'd like me to consider playing on the air, or have a company that is based in Detroit and would like to be a guest. If you do not own a Detroit business, you can still be a sponsor and have your name, and a message you would like to share with the listening public, announced several times throughout the hour, or several times over many shows.
See you on the Radio! Angela

I hope all is well with you and yours, and of course I know you are most blessed!....I am very excited to announce the kick-off of a Vocal Master Class Series, that my company, Celeste Productions, Inc. is doing in conjunction with Brush Park Conservatory of Music & Fine Arts. Anyone who uses the voice in a creative manner (singers - all voice types, women and men; rappers, actors, spoken word artists, voice-over artists, etc.), can benefit from attending this two-hour seminar. It will be held on Sunday November 22 at the International Institute in Detroit.
There will be a maximum of eight artists which I will work with in front of a live audience. This will give each performer a chance to do her or his piece (about 3 minutes or so), and allow enough time for coaching before moving on to the next artist. If you or anyone you know is interested, be sure to call:313-407-8816. The performer/artist slots are going fast, so call ASAP!.
A portion of every ticket sold will go toward supporting Brush Park Conservatory of Music & Fine Arts. I am especially honored to work with them, and its founder/director, the dynamic Joan Crawford. It is a Black-owned, Woman-owned, Detroit based non-profit organization, that benefits the citizens of our great city. Serving ages 5 to 100, supporting this treasure is a wonderful way to support the arts in Detroit.
Be sure to check out the flier below for all the particulars, and I look forward to seeing you there!.

Well...everything happens for a reason!
Long story short, due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts at The Music Box, (and profuse apologies from the lovely owners of the place), we now must change the date of our next performance.
Soooo, we will nOT be appearing on Labor Day weekend at the Music Box, but instead we will perform the following week, on Saturday September 12. The rest of the information remains the same, doors open at 8 PM, show starts at 9 PM, etc.
OK, I think we are all straightened out now. Whew!
I still hope to see lots of folks there!
OK, so first of all, the kick off to our Summer Concert Series was AWSOME!! I will be uploading video footage shortly so that everyone can see for themselves. We had a great time and it was a wonderful night of high energy and music. Thanks to my amazing band, my musical guests (Mary and Richard) and all the friends who came out to support us.
Now, on to the next thing. It looks like we will not be playing in August after all, due to various family obligations and other things that have come up. But, of course that only gives us even more time to get an even hotter show together for you! Which brings me to the latest...if you haven't already noticed, the date of our next show at Detroit's Music Box is Saturday September 5. That's right, we are providing one more fun, music filled outing for your calendar on Labor Day weekend.
Doors open at 8PM and the show starts at 9PM. We hope to see you all there! Peace ;-)

As of March 13, 2009, my song, "If I Drink Champagne", from the CD, "No Limits", is number #6 in rotation, in Episode 10 of the radio show, Key of Gee Jazz Break, hosted by Gisele "Gee" Caver. It is an R&B and Smooth Jazz radio program broadcasting from the University of Detroit-Mercy campus. Check it out here:
I also received an unexpected surprise, when I discovered that my song received a great review from Knobs, for Key of Gee. You can read it for yourself at the following link:
I can't wait to see what happens next... Peace!
