We received a most gracious email last night from a representative of Tavis Smiley's.  It completely surprised me and brought a smile to my face.

Here is a portion of it:

 I would like to extend a thank you to you for keeping your audience in the know with what's going on wih Tavis Smiley and his many endeavors, particularly with regard to Prince.

As many of you know earlier this year, Tavis threw his annual symposium and Prince performed a benefit concert at the Conga Room with all proceeds going to Tavis Smiley's Foundation.  Drfunkenberry.com made available to it's readers tickets that were to only available through the foundation. Those tickets were $50 less then what the Conga Room was charging and it was our way of looking out for our readers, Prince's fans and Tavis's foundation.

We also promoted Prince's appearances on Tavis's show last week.  During all this, where were the other celebrity blogs?  Just making a note of things.  I might say things that are unpopular but I do give press to people who you may not read about elsewhere.  Not because I am told to or I am in someones pocket, but because I want to. 

I don't want to ramble any further.  I am just appreciative of the email I sent. I do not do what I do for recognition or maybe my face would be splattered all over the site.  I do this for genuine love. I can only hope you enjoy it as much as I love doing it.  Thanks again to Tavis and his people for the recognition.-Dr.FB
