What is Queen for a Day?
Raheem and the LoveLife Foundation presented it’s 1st ever “Queen for a Day” Event in February 2015, which is now up in a Web Series (http://mymajicdc.hellobeautiful.com/3566889/queen-for-a-day/) chronicling our beautiful event designed to honor 20-25 Women that are Domestic Violence and Trauma Survivors, as we treated them to a well-deserved day of servicing with Manicures, Mini Massages and Make-up Makeovers (courtesy of Maisie Dunbar Spa Lounge), Hair Services, Products and Gift Bags (courtesy of African Pride), Lunch (provided by KitchenCray DC), Styling Tips (from Hush Boutique’s Own Tamara “Hush” Lee) and a Special Musical Performance by #TheLoveKing himself. The goal of this event was to raise awareness regarding Domestic Violence and assist these dynamic ladies in reclaiming their self-esteem and self-empowerment, with services that they ordinarily would not be able to afford while transitioning.
Thus, Raheem personally wanted to do something positive in 10 of the 30 cities that he was touring in this fall, to raise Domestic Violence awareness and honor these women. This private event, named in honor of and a play of off Raheem’s hit single “Queen,” featured on his 5th Studio Album “Love, Sex and Passion,” caters to Women that are Domestic Violence and Trauma Survivors, treating them to a well-deserved day of services.

Thus, as an extension of this event that we launched here in the Washington, DC area, we also brought the event and Domestic Violence awareness to New Orleans (in which Raheem and the Foundation garnered recognition from the Mayor of New Orleans and Congressman Richmond on behalf of the State of Louisiana).
