Will Downing, Najee performance benefits Hill House Association

willdowning2 Like all man of taste and sophistication, Will Downing has an abiding appreciation of the late great Phyllis Hyman.

“Phyllis Hyman started this whole project,” confesses the Grammy nominated singer who has been dubbed the “Prince of Sophisticated Soul.” “I was having a conversation with a friend who also worked with Phyllis. We both agreed that “Meet Me On The Moon” was our favorite Phyllis tune. My friend suggested I remake it. I called my keyboardist/arranger Mike Logan to help with the song. After completing it, I thought maybe this is a great opportunity to pay tribute to other female artists that I have always loved. That’s how Black Pearls was born!”

The Miles Group | Now Hiring Agents & Mangers!

Darrell Warden: A Pittsburgh Success Story

By Christiana Dillard

“It’s always about being better.”  Darrell Warden, hiring manager for Team Warden & Team Tri-state Group (a part of The Miles Group Insurance Agency) is the embodiment of his own statement. The agency has personnel in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and even Delaware; and their motto, “One Vision,” exemplifies their commitment to “being better.”  And each day Warden personally strives to be the best.

Warden had his beginnings in Rankin, a low-income borough in the Greater Pittsburgh area. However, he refused to allow the town’s bleak environment to bring him down. He attended Full Sail University in Florida and went on to become a music executive at Bad Boy Records with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. Warden was at Bad Boy for ten years before moving back to Pittsburgh to work in the mortgage loan department at PNC Bank. When he was laid off from PNC, he found out that some of his old acquaintances were forming their own insurance group, headed by Troy Miles and hopped on board. For his role as a founding member of The Miles Group, Warden became a hiring manager for his own team within the agency and hasn’t looked back since. Continue reading

Who has helped you achieve where you are today?

Eight new graduates across Point Park University’s four schools shared their thoughts about who has helped them along their journey to earning a master’s degree from Point Park. Below is the response from a friend of Soul Pitt, Mr. Lorenzo Boone:


Photo from http://www.pointpark.edu

Lorenzo Boone, M.F.A. in Writing for the Screen and Stage

“To begin, I have to acknowledge my 85-year-old mother, who I am fortunate to still have with me. It is her lost opportunities and dreams that I carry on my shoulders daily. Through her life, I recognize that we stand on the shoulders of giants. Professors Nelson Chipman and Elise D’Haene also played a significant role in my development, and gave me incentive to keep driving towards my goals. They helped me believe that my style of storytelling and the voice that accompanies it needs to be told. They convinced me that even though it may not be traditional or mainstream, it has a place and it has merit.”

Royal Roots, a fair trade collection of skirts and accessories

Ujamaa Collectives First Direct International Fair Trade Contract
By Renee P. Aldrich

The terrain of lush greenery, palm and pine trees grow beside each other; the red clay soil that creates the roads in Tanzania’s Village of Kagera located in East Africa tells only a fraction of the journey.  The rigorous travel which consisted of 3 airplane flights for a total of 19 air hours. Traveling from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, to Qatar, situated between Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf, then to Uganda. All this followed up with an overnight stay in a mysterious hotel; then, an additional 6-hour ground transportation by bus and two jammed packed mini-vans to get across the Ugandan and Tanzanian borders, as well as, the equator, is another part of the journey.
