The inaugural Sistahs Succeed 2 Showcase (SS2 Showcase) presented by Spirit Magazine is coming to the Cook Convention Center on June 7th-8th.
The showcase is designed as an eventful weekend in downtown Memphis for women of all ages to enjoy live entertainment, meet celebrity guests and sample and purchase a wide range of health, beauty, fitness, fashion and financial products and services.
"The goal of the showcase is to provide resources to uplift and encourage not only our sisters but their families as well in all aspects of life from health and fitness, to being glamorous and financially stable," says President of SS2 Showcase, Inc. Minerva Little. "We're bringing all of those things under one roof and making it an entertaining event for everyone involved."
Event highlights for Saturday, June 7th include appearances from celebrity guest Morris Chestnut ("Best Man Holiday") and featured music performances by the "King of Southern Soul," Sir Charles Jones.
On Sunday, the SS2 Showcase will feature a worship service with Pastor Uliasea Little Jr. and the Christ Baptist Church family, followed by Memphis' Best Gospel Competition, where a grand prize of $1,000 will be awarded for the best solo performance. Actress Elise Neal will serve as a celebrity judge. Contestants can enter online at http://www.ss2showcase.com/.
Tickets for the showcase go on sale Saturday (May 24th) at the Cook Convention Center Box Office. Early-bird tickets are $10. Also on Saturday, vendors can purchase and choose booth locations and solo artists may register for the Memphis Best Gospel Competition.
