@chelleyuniverse

Wednesday was an epic night as Ms. “_Took the Night_”, Chelley (Ultra SONY), entertained a crowd at the New York location (SoHo) of international high-end shoe store, United Nude. The collaboration was made possible by Playbook Media Group and sponsored by Clique Vodka, Birthday Cake Wines, and Peroni Beer.

United Nude shoes are like none other, producing futuristic styled shoes that are ready to wear, as seen on Lady GaGa, who wore their special designed shoe made just for her. I must say that their store is a shoe maven’s heaven to which Chelley has been a big fan of and incorporated into her “Glam Life” persona. There were many notable blog sites and magazines, such as Nylon, Paper Magazine, and NY Post in the building, to name a few, as Chelley performed her Hit “_Took the Night_” as well as her new single slated to be released in 2014 called “_Take Your Money_”. Also in attendance was BGC Season 11, GiGi, and owner of United Nude shoes himself, Rem D. Koolhass. The event featured many of United Nude’s 2013 and 2014 shoe collections, which Chelley and her dancers sported during the performance. Definitely take a peek into their creative shoe world and look out for Chelley to take over your headphones once again in 2014!!

THE DARK SIDE OF MONEY: AMERICAN DREAM MEETS MURDER AS GRITTY NEW NOVEL PEAKS BEHIND THE GLAMOUR OF AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN FAMILY’S HIGH LIFE

– Written by d. E. Rogers and uniquely fusing fact with fiction, ‘The Dark Side of Money’ proves that some people would do anything to retain their wealth and the promise of the American Dream – even if it means killing their family. As one of the few books to focus on the successes of African-Americans, the novel is poised to resonate with readers from coast to coast. –


Bookcover and author, d. E. Rogers

San Francisco Bay Area, CA (BlackNews.com) — While thousands of books depict African-American families as struggling to reach the success of wider society, The Dark Side of Money showcases the high-life millions of families enjoy. However, no book of gripping fiction is worth its weight without a heavy dose of action, suspense and murder.

Thankfully, author d. E. Rogers gives readers all three with gusto. The novel’s narrative thrusts readers from the fruits of success to the tumultuous consequences of trying to hold onto the American Dream.
