Special from Sherlene Shanklin
The original Bad Boy for Life Sean Combs aka Diddy does Derby? This is not his first visit to the Bluegrass but it will be the media mogul will do his first public party. It’s The Trifecta Celebrity After Party hosted by Diddy at the Louisville Palace, right in the heart of downtown Louisville on Fourth Street. The event will take place on Oaks Night, Friday, May 4th. It will start as soon as former NBA star turned entrepreneur Junior Bridgeman’s Trifecta Gala held at the Omni Hotel begins to wrap up.
Now with Diddy, the “trifecta” is now complete when it comes to the originators in the entertainment industry for Bridgeman’s gala. The artist performing at the gala is none other than Stevie Wonder,. The multi-Grammy Award artist was discovered for his musical talent while singing and playing the harmonica as a young man visually impaired but he clearly gives his fans a vivid picture of imagination and creativity like his hit song “Ribbon in the Skies”.
Another originator who will emcee the event is comedian Arsenio Hall. He elevated late night talk shows helping young actors and artists catapulted their careers but his show was a platform for some of the biggest stars in entertainment from Prince, Eddie Murphy, George Lopez to Paula Abdul just a name a few of the many guests on his show.
The Trifecta Gala will be held on Friday, May 4th in Louisville at the Omni Hotel. It begins at 7:00 pm.
After the gala, its Diddy for the Celebrity After-Party at the Louisville Palace. The party begins at 11:00 pm and ends at 4:00 am. There will be two options based on how close you want to get to the celebrities. There’s a VIP area. You can party in those areas. There’s also a first level admission that gets you into the party but no access to the level where you can see the Derby guests up close.
To proceeds will benefit the Bridgeman Charitable Foundations. To purchase tickets both events you need to go to their website www.trifectagala.com.
