Todd Dulaney: New Music, New Ventures & Boxing?

Yes… boxing! And I am not talking about the Canadian holiday either.

So I had the opportunity to speak with Grammy and Dove Award nominated, Stellar Award Winner Todd Dulaney about his brand new project, “Anthems & Glory” and found out this man has been pandemic busy!

Along with his new project, his new boxing passion, singing the national anthem for the Chicago White Sox recently (He also played pro-baseball for five years.), he and his wife Kenyetta  are expecting their 5th baby that they are aptly calling their “Pandemic Baby” because… well… you know

Anthems & Glory has  17 tracks including his number one single Psalms 18, his latest single Revelation 4 and features heavy hitters like Kierra Sheard-Kelly, Smokie Norful,  Todd Galberth and more.  Go to ToddDulaneyLand.com  for more information on this powerhouse!

I Wanted To Throw My Crocs At The Internet When I Saw This…

…and apparently I’m not the only one.

On Sunday, Balenciaga showcased their new collaboration of stiletto Crocs and knee-high Croc boots. This is the second time Balenciaga has worked with Crocs. The last time featured a platform clog that sold out before the shoe had a chance to debut in stores.

BUT… after some us saw the new eh hem… design the internet was ablaze.

I think that was the point… right?
