She is the chief Designer of Fashions
and Doll Concepts for Mattel’s most successful
barbie line. Perkin’s is the perfect example of
vigor (energy, power). Ms. Perkins has given
and given to Barbie’s 300 million plus fashions.
She is the genius behind their fashion.
Perkins is a resident of South Carolina.
She is one out of 7 children. Her big dream
came true because she became a commercial
artists when her aunt in California asked
her to come after high school graduation.
1976, Perkins was enthralled with a classified
ad for a fashion designer for the largest toy company
in the world, Mattel. And one of the many advantages
she has is that she gets to travel around the world.
It sounds like fun. That’s a way to spice life up.
One of her many lines is the African American
fashion dolls Shanni and Friends,1991,
Fashion Savvy, 1997, and the Brandy
line that is the most recent.
If you are in the area of South Carolina, you might

She has been given the spotlight by magazines
like Ebony,Essence, La Magazine, Woman’s Day,
and Sister to Sister. Her honors are stacked up
and her talent is notable. Specifiically, she has won
the Chairman’s Award,which is the highest
recognition a Mattel employee can get.
And to go with that, she was honored with a high
achievement award, the Doty Award. Woman of the
Year is another title she got at the Woman Keeping
the Dream Alive banquet. It was July 23, 2001 that
she was inducted into the Black Hall of Fame.
How much more great does it get?
Perkins’ selfless acts include putting a chunk
of her time and energy back into the community.
She has volunteered to speak at Career

raising more than $100,000 for charitable
Wrapping it up, will you ever look at a
Mattel doll the same?
got to so muchstyle to their drumming,
I call it splendid. The audience gathered
around listening and paying.
Oh, it takes my mind to the my high school’s
parade that I listened to when the
students were marching in the streets. It is certainly great how
certain moments can make you remember
things. They are in unison and switch
to one person playing. They
really got this organized very very
well, as organized as a conductor
instructing but in this case they
are playing. I have so much appreciation
and respect for their talent
Well, I don’t hear much of
Chrisette Michelle on tv. This is my first
time hearing her sing. She’s a def
jam recording artist and definitely on
jam. She has such a MATURE voice.
I was glad to hear the National
anthem, this song gets me all emotional.
It’s those high notes that especially
Chrisette MIchele is a black
woman that beauty and voice are way
up there in rank. I’m super impressed
with her. I love that song “National
ANthem” and she takes it over with
such skillful and beautiful singing.

to be Here”. It is magnificent. I heard the
remix to the song and its really grand.
Now imagine somebody singing that
high pitch song Nobody Supposed to be
Here. Imagine all the vocal control
one needs to have to sing it very strongly
like this young woman did. Dominique was
auditioning for P.Diddy and sang Nobody
Supposed to be here.
She was like a vocal teacher on stage
the way she took that song on. SHe got up there and gave
it her all, all her energy and strength.
I could just imagine how fast her heart
was beating. But she did it and Didddy
gave her a chance, accepted her onto
the team.I was thinking wow, that is truly
a first rate song.
SanJuanTrini is the screenname they go under at youtube.com. They are the singing
twins that have such astonishing and incredible voices. They at times sing together but in
other cases they sing separate. They have a really nice accent. Their voices are smooth
like free flowing skating. Their voices are romantic. Here is one of their videos at this
link- one of the twins is singing “Hard to Say Goodbye” by Chris Brown: http://youtube.com/watch?v=eNofxJOwyTI
I’m so impressed, they have voices as smooth as sweet as sweet potato pie.
The twin sings Akon’s song “Don’t Matter” at this link:

love you” by Mario at this url: http://youtube.com/watch?v=gMHbyWul0M8
Those twins sing “You’re my everything” by Dru Hill at this link:
Those twins could definitely get a standing ovation with the type of singing
they do. If I was a music producer, I would hire them on the spot. I dig their
voices so much. I rate them 100 on a scale of 1-10. They would make
a good addition to the entertainment field. I got to admit, those twins are
just as great as Boyz II men. They take me there when they sing songs
because I can imagine them on stage with billions of fans coming to
see them perform. They got it like that.
Well, Ciara is a great and talented singer.
I just recently found out she has
a new movie coming up. I remember
stars who are singers sometimes don’t
want to be in movies about singing.
But this is her first movie that she’s
in that I know of. The movie is coming
out Spring 2008.
wait until the Spring the warm weather.
But yeah that’s when it comes out.
As I look at the movie case I see
Lynn Whitfield and Ciara. I say
they look alot of like.
I’m so glad to see Lynn Whitfield in this movie, she one of those actors who been
around a long time.
