Viva Doll, aka, Viva Angelina Sky, a very attractive and talented  latina performer,  who many believe to be the second coming of the late legendary superstar Tejano  female singer,  Selena Quintanilla—-the first female Tejano singer to record a gold album, “Ven Conmigo”—- murdered on March 31, 1995, was the foc al point of a launch, and  meet and greet, PR, networking, media blitz at   Rumbo Studios, 20215, Saticoy in Canoga Park Ca, last Saturday, June 13, 2015 in the valley. Viva , now backed by Radz Records,  and flexing  with a #1 Bill Board hit, “Nirvana”, under her belt, veteran of successful European touring exploits, having been awarded the Vive’s prestigious “”Best New Performer” was jettisoned into the valley’s record scene, and if one doesn’t know of her yet, rest assured she is quickly becoming a media, demographic crossing, commercial baby doll.
Many media representatives, including Christine Devine of Fox Channel 11,  were on hand to network, view this ticking Latin  time bomb, whose highly anticipated performance later that night was what all this frenzy was about,  posting up for the best shots, position oneself with her business colleagues, including the producer of this event, media up and coming upstart, standout, and newly appointed “media darling” of The Beverly Hills chapter of The UN,  Eric Zuley,  also known as “EZ”-EZWAY BROADCASTING –VIVA CAN BE FOUND AT HER ANDROID APP AND VIVADOLL.COM.
Also, set to perform or appear  this night were singers LP Official, Lisa Lewolt, Mary Desmond, and actors Patrick Faucette, of Tyler Perry’s , “The Haves and the Have nots” on OWN, and Retha Grey, from the hit Betty White, comic gem, “Off their Rockers”, of NBC and Lifetime,  just to name a few. The models and actors, were so heavily entrenched in this celebrity extravaganza that at times one couldn’t tell who was media and who were actors-singers. In fact, at times the title of actor-singer and media was the norm, as some media wear all  three hats.  The media that were listed and confirmed  to appear are as follows:

Ms. Sky, sung “Boom, Boom”, as her vocals were rich, clear and highly volatile, with a blend of rock and rhythm and blues,  her new single and  did not disappoint her legion of followers. I feel that  this makes her an even bigger bet to someday claim her rightful place among the huge names in music because not only is she a threat to capture the latino and rock markets but also,  armed with her diversified, multi demographical oriented capabilities, which includes the ability to access 5 octaves,  Viva has a shot at becoming a fixture, in my opinion, in the highly competitive soul, and hip hop markets as well. Her beauty, sweet personality, coupled with a drive that manifests itself on stage as sexy and fierce is positioning her music as one whose style  is both distinctive  but also highly  commercial. In addition, the guidance of Eric Zuley, of EZWAY BROADCASTING, INC   as she is under his wing and media machine and that  should have her positioned to stake her claim in the highly lucrative fields of todays social media as well as all of the ever quickly changing mechanics of the rapidly changing technological dynamics which are impacting not only entertainment, but that of media and the world itself.

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
