Everything GeorgiaMe does is all through the will of God so fellowship is a joy and honorable duty. Performing at all types of spiritual gatherings. From the Baha’i' Temple to the Masjid to the C.O.G.I.C! Always a blessing to be a blessing!
Every stage is major to GA so it was imperative that she do every mic in the country. She hasn't done them all but very few can say they have done more stages. From Bohemian Room in Miami to Signature Series in Dayton OH to Da Lounge in LA she leaves no scene untouched.

nights, gentleman’s club, hair shows, conventions and everything in between!
