A gloomy evening was not the best start for this roof top party. But it was only a little drizzle that kept the rooftop doors closed short time. As guests arrived the rain stopped and a beautiful sunset took place. With guests both inside and outside the lounge, WBLS’ DJ Quick rocked the 90s tunes making this an awesome night. R&B artists Jeff Redd and Meli’sa Morgan were both in the building to support the cause.

Before the party got into full swing, the music was lowered and presentations were made to honorees. Bivins upon receiving his Music Mogul and Icon award, talked about how important the work The Rhythm and Blues Foundation is doing. When when artists pas sway and there are kids, the Rhythm and Blues Foundation can step in and help due to fundraisers like Soul of the 90s.
