There’s No Stopping Naturi Naughton

Naturi NaughtonNaturi Naughton has taken off into the fame stratosphere. Her star had already been climbing steadily, but it has now moved to a vertical course and is accelerating rapidly.

While in her mid-teens, a stint in the gold record-producing girl group 3LW got things started. A role in the touring and Broadway companies of Hairspray as Little Inez kept it moving. A butt-kicking performance as Lil Kim in Notorious gave it momentum. And now, at twenty-five, her bravura showing in Fame has her defying gravity altogether.

Naturi is following in the footsteps of Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson, as the next great multitalented female star in our midst. Next up? A comedy with Ice Cube, a sure recording deal and cool affiliations (such as her current one with Great Friends Greetings).

We’ll be seeing a great deal of Naturi Naughton down the road, and it will be an absolute joy.

Andy Roddick’s Popularity Soars After Wimbledon Loss

Posted in andy roddick, athletes, card, gift, greeting, greeting card, merchandise, personalized, roddick, sports, tennis by Angela Wyatt Dean on July 7, 2009

Andy RoddickAndy Roddick lost the match he most wanted to win, but, in the process, he gained something he might not have achieved, even with a victory. It seems tennis enthusiasts were so taken by Roddick’s determined effort against Roger Federer, perhaps the greatest tennis player of all time, that they have joined his camp as never before.

The match was a pure classic, a marathon slugfest, with Roddick holding serve thirty-seven times before he was finally broken in the thirtieth game of the fifth set.

The number of Roddick’s Twitter followers and Facebook fans spiked precipitously in the two days after the final. At the customized gift site, Great Friends Greetings, interest in personalized greeting cards from Roddick has soared, according to Kenny Perschetz, the company’s president.

There is always a spot in the sports fan’s heart for an underdog and no one fills that spot any better right now than Andy Roddick. It will be fun to watch him lay it all out there as he strives to achieve his second career grand slam title at the US Open this September, with a fan base that will be heavily in his corner from his first rocket-like serve.

Naturi NaughtonThe multi-talented Naturi Naughton is only twenty-five years old but has already made her mark on the big screen, the Broadway stage and in the recording studio.

Next is the role of Denise in the new film version of the 1980 smash hit Fame. And some great new original music is likely to be coming our way in the not to distant future as well.

Fame is definitely on the horizon for Naturi Naughton! Remember her name!

Naturi has also teamed with Great Friends Greetings, the customized gift company, to bring their unique line of greetings to her fans. Send a beautiful, custom printed, perfectly personalized, greeting card from Naturi to your favorite friend or even to yourself!
