My dear friend Yolanda aka Rev. Roger "Yolanda" Mapes (wow! That's a mouthful!) will be appearing THIS Sunday December 16th at the Duplex for another edition of her/his OLD TIME GOSPEL HOUR. Don't be put off thinking that it's going to be anything but a rousing hour of awesome songs, moving stories and great company.. and it's the perfect way to spend your holiday season especially if you're kind of over fake Christians who will knock you down trying to elbow you from getting that last Honey Boo Boo doll (I don't know if there are such things but it's fun to think so, right?)
Anyway, you can click here to make your reservations NOW before the show is sold out (which it has been many times before). Yolanda is one of my favorite New Yorkers and dont miss this show!! :)
For those of you not familiar with the fabulousness that is Yolanda, take a look at this video of her April 2012 apperance on The Will Clark Show (aka P*rno Bingo) singing her signature song, "We Are Angels".
On a related note, as this difficult year draws to a close, this video reminds me of the friendships that I have that have seen me through.. and given that this video was taken during a particularly challenging time.. it's why you might be able to detect me getting emotional.
