Whether it was talking about “tatas” with Shontelle or baseball with Asher Roth, Think Pink Rocks Oct. 9 was a night that Michael Swirsky, 11, will never forget.
Swirsky, who wrote a touching email to win the Think Pink ticket giveaway, was kind enough to bring his sister Jen, who spent the night trying to get the little man to open up.
Shontelle took care of that!
After asking what made the concert in support of breast cancer awareness so special, the R&B star responded in kind, saying that as a woman with “tatas” aka breasts of her own, it was extra vital to support her gender and the cause.
The judicial system definitely lost out when Shontelle decided to ditch law school for a shot at R&B stardom. That decision seemed to work out just fine as her first album Shontelligence reached the coveted top Billboard 200.
With her sophomore album No Gravity released last week, Shontelle took a few minutes off touring to speak with Mike Rothman about her huge hit “Impossible”, her future goal to someday work with Alicia Keys, comparisons to Rhianna and believe it or not, the hard-rock band System of a Down made its way into the conversation.
In a phone conversation earlier this morning, SRC Records/Universal CEO Steve Rifkind told Mike Rothman that in addition to Pitbull and Shontelle, that 50 Cent, Nelly and Flo Rida would also be at the third edition of the Think Pink Rocks concert set for 7 p.m. Oct. 9.
Rifkind added that 50 Cent looked in good health and had added back some of the weight he lost earlier this year for a movie role ironically enough about having cancer. More information to come.
For ticket information go to Think Pink Rocks.
The lineup continues to grow and will feature only the best in the music industry at the Think Pink Rocks concert in Boca Raton on 7 p.m. Oct. 9th.
The third installment of the charity event is set to feature recording artists from SRC Records/Universal, including Akon, Asher Roth, Melanie Fiona, Ray J, and Shontelle, along with special guest Pitbull.
Think Pink Rocks is a South Florida organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer awareness.
The Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton will be the site for the munificent event and will benefit Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, the Boca Raton Community Hospital Women’s Center for Breast Care, and other charities.
Can posh South Beach handle hip-hop and R&B infusions from SRC Records and its kingpin, legendary CEO Steve Rifkind? The former Loud Records mogul thinks Miami is ripe for his imposing lineup of diversified artists and could be the next epicenter of the music world.
Rifkind, the man responsible for breaking in the Wu-Tang Clan, Big Pun and Mobb Deep, continues to impose his will on the industry with current megastars like the ubiquitous Akon and suburbanite rapper Asher Roth.
