On today’s Throwback Thursday we head back to 2012. Still called the “Hoodies,” the 2012 Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards were held in Las Vegas, NV!

Chirl Girl and the V Crew 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.

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.

We sat down with 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 the new 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!
