Woman of Interest: Paula Kelly



Hey y'all...I know it has been a minute since I've shared a "Woman of Interest" with you. So without further adieu, it is my esteemed pleasure to introduce the incomparable: Paula Kelly.

She is a singer, dancer and actress...a black beauty...and another woman I want to be when I grow up. I could go on and on about this immense talent...but I can show you better than I can tell you. Check her out in action with another fierce lady: Chita Rivera (love her!) in "Sweet Charity":

I love this sister. She's artistic, down to Earth, and she has the kind of laid-back self-confidence and eternal beauty that seems to force life to deal with her on her own terms.

She's my kind of woman. She's the walking, breathing, personafication of Miles Davis playing a tender ballad into smoke-filled room.

That's what I thought as I walked past her apartment on Clinton one beautiful Saturday morning. I could hear her upstairs in her solitude, quietly playing "Round Midnite" on piano.

There was something about that moment that struck me as poetic. Paula is the kind of woman who defines environment, instead of letting it define her.

I once fell in love with a woman because she reminded me of Paula Kelly.
