From the Publisher – May 2017

I cannot express how excited I am about this issue of
ONYX Magazine. We are celebrating the human-uniting
power of music. No matter what other entities in life tear
us apart, music has the strength to bond us as one. As
we celebrate Black Music Month in June, I am reminded
that a song often sparks emotions in us we carry forever.

Like the first time you saw The Supremes. Whether you
were alive in the 60s or you’re a member of a younger
generation, those beautiful women in their shimmering
gowns locked you in for the moment. In this issue, we
shine the spotlight on their leader Ms. Diana Ross who is
still “The Boss” after decades of chart-topping success.
Her music has won fans the world over, and soon she will
be gracing the stage of the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando.
What an evening that will be.

As additional inspiration, we celebrate CeCe Winans who
blesses us with her godly encouragement and angelic
voice. But we didn’t have to travel far to find musical
genius. Elisabeth Withers-Mendes mesmerized us in the
acclaimed Broadway musical “The Color Purple,” and
now, as a Florida resident, she’s bringing a tribute to the
late, great Prince. You don’t want to miss it.

In this issue, mothers who aspire to be business
owners will get a glimpse into the highs and lows of
mompreneruship. We also share some delectable treats
you can share with mom at her Mother’s Day brunch.
You will also be inspired by our ONYX On the Move
Profiles: professionals at the top of their game, making
things happen.

As always, we remain committed to our readers to
entertain, inspire and inform. Enjoy.
