JUNE 24, 2017- JULIE DEXTER JAZZ IN THE ALLEY

If you have been a follower of When We Speak TV for a some time, then you know exactly who Julie Dexter is. Julie Dexter is not only a wonderful person and vocalist, she was also the first concert I went to when I moved to Atlanta. Since the first moment I watched her performance, I knew I really enjoyed this lady. Then, a few years back, I got the opportunity to have Julie on When We Speak (my talk show) which was supa dupa nice because Julie was so warm and full of knowledge that I didn’t want to stop speaking with her. Since then, I’ve followed Julie along her career and whenever I can, I try to attend her shows as often as possible.

However, the reason for this post is to inform you of her show coming up in Norcross, Georgia, at Jazz In The Alley. I can’t wait!!!! Not only is When We Speak TV an official partner of Jazz In The Alley but how cool is it that June 24th is my birthday and Julie Dexter, a When We Speak guest will be performing on that day!!! So YOU definitely have to come out to downtown Norcross, Georgia on June 24th and celebrate with me!!! I’ll be working, getting footage and stuff but that doesn’t mean you can still come and enjoy the FREE concert!!! And I will always find time to take pics on my birthday with everyone!!!!! So make plans to meet us in downtown Norcross, Georgia, on June 24,2017!!!!!! Don’t Forget….IT’S FREE!!!! So come enjoy!!!



And the fun doesn’t have to stop there!  There are more great concerts coming to downtown Norcross!  Check it out!
