Thank you to everyone who took part in We Love Soul’s Pre-NYE Celebration “The Party of The Year!” What an AWESOME night and it couldn’t have been All That and Then Some without your support! 
Were we in for a treat or what?! The dance floor was rockin all night and the legendary Josh Milan did his thing in a rare Live Performance & DJ set while giving us a taste of what he’s been working on lately in the studio. We can’t wait to hear what else he has in store for us! 
Thank you to everyone who worked in front and behind the scenes to make this a successful event and a successful year. 2015 was a great year for the We Love Soul community and we’re ready for even bigger and better things next year.
Happy Birthday Duane Powell!
Happy New Year to everyone! Thanks so much for your continued support and we’ll see you in 2016!
