It was so good to back in the Boys and Girls Club today in Orlando. My visit was so special to me because grew up in the Boys and Girls Club and I had so much fun with the incredibly talented young men & women. They had many activities like dance performances and magic tricks! The amazing young artists at the Boys and Girls Club presented their new piece of art. Also, a big thank you to Commissioner Bakari Burns for my “I Am Simply Magic Day” proclamation from the city of Orlando!
