mic holder


(( I caved and did that “Draw the squad” meme thing, except this time with the eight children who fell. ))

(( To be honest, Rufus would’ve been a better candidate for Henry’s spot since Henry’s too nice to rub victory in anyone’s face, but I made him the mic holder instead because there’s nothing in the world that Rufus loves more than to tease Bobby-John. ))

Mark McEwen Talks About Aaliyah


Q: What was your initial impression meeting Aaliyah?

MM: Well, I must say I was at first I was captivated by how beautiful she was. My son and daughter always listed to her and I saw her on a couple of videos and thought she was a very talented.  When I got to interview her I saw that she wasn’t just a pretty face, but she had a beautiful spirit also.

Q: People always say that she had a beautiful soul, I guess you are confirming that?

MM: Yes. In fact when my team arrived at the recording location, she was in the middle of getting her hair and makeup done. She stopped what she was doing and took the time out to say hello and introduce herself to my all of my team [even greeted the boom mic holder]. Class act!

Q: What most impressed you about Aaliyah?

MM: I was impressed by how poised she was at such a young age. Even though she was 21, she had the composure of a veteran that had been in this business for decades. She was a very well put together young lady. Her parents did a great job!

Q: What was one thing you took away after the interview?

MM: After the interview we must have talked for 30 minutes. Aaliyah had the ability made you feel as if you had know her your whole life. She was a very open person.  

Q: What is last memory of Aaliyah that you have?

MM: I think she personified the motto, “if you work hard you can achieve what you want.” She was so young with so many accomplishments. That was a young lady many women could learn from. I guess that’s why her legacy lives on.
