A Chat with LaTasha Lee & The BlackTies
We sat down with LaTasha Lee & The BlackTies to get the dish on barbecue, music venues, and what they love most about working in Texas' capital city.
Rising international soul singing sensation Latasha Lee has given a nod to the Bay of Plenty in a video that is going viral online.
The Texas star was in Tauranga in January for the sold out One Love Festival in Tauranga Domain, along with other international acts including the UK's UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey, Hawaii's Kohole Kai and reggae royalty Ky-Mani Marley, along with Kiwi names Katchafire, and locals L.A.B. and crowd favourite Stan Walker.
Lee who played to a rapt crowd of 20000 was so enamoured with the Bay of Plenty she made a video 'My Soul Journey' to record her visit to Tauranga. The video features Lee being greeted traditionally, learning some te reo and the "good vibes all round" including a cute moment where a local woman gives her a flax-woven hat to protect her head from the Bay sun, prompting Lee to ask: "Are you sure you don't need it?", followed by a hug.
The 20-minute video, which has been shared more than 300 times, also shows her shopping and eating around Tauranga.
