Chirl Girl and our V1019 Staff had a BLAST at this year’s 2012 Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards in Las Vegas, NV!  We met a ton of celebrities including John Legend and Estelle, and we even got to see Steve Harvey’s final stand-up comedy show at the MGM Grand.

Sheryl Underwood, a co-host of “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” and panelist on the hit TV Show “The Talk,” talked with Chirl Girl about how great Steve was during his last comedy show as well as how excited she is to be in Charlotte, NC, for the Democratic National Convention.  She says that even though she’s a Republican, she definitely wants to get President Obama re-elected in November.

Shirley Strawberry, co-host of “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” talked with Chirl about his final show on Las Vegas and how bitter sweet it was to see him on stage in the front row for his last one ever!  Plus, she talks about their great work relationship while on the radio together.

Chirl Girl got to meet the legendary singer Lenny Williams and talk to him how he’s still in the game after his first record was released in 1969!  Plus, find out how he is writing new songs to pertain to our latest generation.

Finally, Chirl Girl got to talk with some of the Hoodie Award finalists from our North and South Carolina area!  Owners from Platinum Cuts and Shug-A-Bug Kids Spa talk about their small businesses and what it means to them to be nominated for a Hoodie this year!
