Tag: DJ Irie Weekend 2013
Next month will make five years since we spoke with actor Omar Benson Miller [see here]. You might recall the actor for his role in the Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon and Jennifer Lopez movie Shall We Dance or for his recurring spot on the TV show CSI: Miami.
Over the years, people have ended up on CYInterview in their quest to figure out if Mr. Miller is related to Oscar winning actor Forest Whitaker. In 2008, Omar told us a rumor began on Wikipedia which led some to believe the two were related. Though no one can deny the physical resemblance, they are not related.
Earlier this month we shared with you our CYInterview with retired NFL running back Clinton Portis [see here] from Irie Weekend. During the weekend festivities we also spoke with musician Chris Kirkpatrick, known to many from the popular 90s/early 2000s boy band ‘N Sync. Post ‘N Sync, Mr. Kirkpatrick continues to work on his music and represents musical acts, among other things.
Chris told us about his upcoming wedding, charitable causes and spoke about the possibility of an ‘N Sync reunion.
Earlier this week, we brought you photos with the stars from Irie Weekend [see here]. Now comes our first CYInterview from the festivities. It is a conversation with retired NFL running back Clinton Portis. Mr. Portis played in the NFL, from 2002 to 2010, with the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins.
Last week, celebrities made their presence felt in South Florida for the annual Irie Weekend festivities. Athletes, music stars and actors, among others, made the three day affair one to remember. The annual event is put on by DJ Irie. The Miami Heat’s disc jockey is currently one of the most in demand nightlife entertainers in the country. You can see me with DJ Irie in the photo above.
Mr. Irie is also actor Jamie Foxx’s personal DJ. Whenever Jamie has a party, DJ Irie is the man he calls. He has appeared on such programs as Good Morning America and The Early Show. Irie Weekend raises money to assist at risk youth. The organization provides scholarships, mentoring and cultural experiences to children in need.
