Marlon Jackson visits Lafayette, observes moment of silence for theater shooting victims

The Lafayette community got an uplifting visit from Marlon Jackson on Saturday July 25th. He stopped in town to host a fundraiser for the KABOOM Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps build playgrounds for children in underserved areas. Marlon was a welcome break for the Acadiana community, which is still reeling from Thursday’s attack on The Grand Theatre which left three people dead, including the gunman, and nine others wounded. Marlon helps raise money for causes like the KABOOM effort through his own Study Peace Foundation. The Marlon Jackson Study Peace Foundation’s mission is to promote peace and unity in communities worldwide. Members of the committee that were hosting the event said it had been planned sometime ago, but it was one way for people to come together and do something good. The group is currently planning a playground in the 7th Ward in New Orleans. “I think it just brings our state together,” said Jennifer Jackson (no relation to Marlon) a member of the host committee. “It’s great to see these people get together to help another city. It will give kids a place to play. It reminds me about the best part of our lives. As kids we love to play. I think we are still in shock, but it was timely because it helps brings our community together, to be proactive and come together.” During Saturday’s presentation, Marlon Jackson and committee members observed a moment of silence and then prayer for the victim’s of Thursday attack.

Janet Jackson proves that you can’t mess with a legend. The singer is the newest inductee in The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame. But despite the seven-year break between her last album, 2008′s Discipline, and her new single, “No Sleeep,” it seems that fans’ love for Janet has never wavered. “No Sleeep” has a slow, sultry groove reminiscent of the material on her 1997 album, Velvet Rope. Janet’s road to the Hall of Fame seemed to be a quick one as she dominated the polls and never received less than 86 percent of the fan vote. First, she knocked T-Pain’s “Make That S— Work” off its pedestal followed by OMI’s “Cheerleader,” Miguel’s “NWA” and Majid Jordan’s “My Love.” Jackson joins Rawyals, the Weeknd, Fetty Wap, Chris Brown, Tinashe, Michael Jackson, Trey Songz, Lil Durk, T-Pain and the most recent inductee, Kid Cudi, in The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
