FAB Event: Hennessy Wild Rabbit Event with Solange, Erykah Badu, Missy Elliott and Timbaland

Erykah Badu is one of the faces of the Hennessy Campaign
On Friday night April 6, all roads lead to NYC's legendary High-Line stages for the ├╝ber exclusive launch of Hennessy's Wild Rabbit Campaign.

With the tag line of "Never Stop, Never Settle" the event featured performances by maestro DJ D-Nice, superstars Erykah Badu, Missy Elliott, Timbaland and Solange Knowles. I was on the scene covering the event and I had the time of my life!! From the delectable open bar to the hot beats provided by D-Nice, this event experience was incomparable.

Solange arrived super early and stopped for pics but didn't speak to reporters. She DJ'd for a reception part of the event which wasn't open to the general public.  Love her fabulous fro! Solo then danced the night away to D-Nice and was in fact the first person to get up and start dancing. I love her free spirit!

Football player Victor Cruz from the New York Giants also stopped by!

Erykah Badu came out to speak to the press shortly the main event began. A perfect amabassador of the "Never Stop, Never Settle" campaign songstress Badu is also a licensed midwife. She exclusively told me that she helped deliver her first baby in February. How amazing is that?? Imagine Erykah Badu helping you give birth? I would literally pass out!!

"Think Like A Man" actress Gabrielle Union also stopped by the red carpet to promote her latest flick. Is anyone else excited to watch "Think Like A Man"? It comes out in the US on April 20th. Gabby Union told me that the movie will be released in South Africa later this year. Speaking of SA tune in to YFM to hear what her favorite place to visit in SA is.

Gabby looked amazing!!! 39 and killing the game!

Inside the party was EVERYTHING! As I mentioned Solange DJ'd during the presentation but D-Nice held it down for the part goers. He played a nice mixture of music and the crowd ate it up.
On the scene inside - I couldn't stop smiling! Too much fun!

Superstars Missy Elliott and Timbaland hit the stage and performed a few songs. The duo brought the 90's back by playing some of their hits and also premiering new songs. Guys, I couldn't stop dancing!! Funny story: I bumped into Timbaland's wife in the restroom (of all places) and she is absoulely beautiful. She had a Herve Leger dress and it looked like it was literally painted on. She seemed to be also midly surprised that I knew who she was. But that's me- I know all about the celebs and sometimes even their significant others. Ha!

Erykah Badu closed out the night by performing a few of her biggest hits. Let me put if you this way-wherever Erykah goes I will follow. Her performance sent shivers up my spine, it was all that and a bag of chips. Check out the video below to see a bit of her show.
