Latifah To Receive New Jersey Honour
Rapper-turned-actress QUEEN LATIFAH is set to be honoured with a key to the city of Secaucus, New Jersey tonight (14JUL05).
The CHICAGO star will be presented with the key by Mayor DENNIS ELWELL during a special, free mini-concert in the Secaucus area for her ongoing support and activism in the state of New Jersey.
The concert - which will feature a performance from the New Jersey native - will introduce local women who are at risk, to a new awards project aimed at raising self-confidence among women, according to Allhiphop.com.
Five finalists will receive $2,000 (GBP1,100) grants which will go towards community projects the finalists are involved in, with the grand prize winner being awarded a $10,000 (GBP5,500) grant.14/07/2005 09:51
