- How/ Why did you get involved with DJ4C?
(CB) My friend DJ Quiana Parks told me about the event DJ4C and about the cause and I told her I wanted to get involved anyway that I could help.
- How has the organization impacted you personally?
(CB) Personally, it brings me joy to be able to use my talents to help such an amazing cause.
- How did you start DJing?
(CB) I started DJing when I was 12 years old with my parents old record player and a cassette deck doing little mixes for my friends and family
- How would you describe your mixing style?
(CB) Top 40s meets world. I like to blend hits with records you may not hear normally in the clubs or on the radio

(CB) I’m starting to fall back in love with RnB. I really like John Legends new project. There is also an RnB singer from Harlem named Jarred Scott who has some summer-time heat
- What are some of your favorite music artists?
(CB) Thats a tough one because I love all styles of music, but Marvin Gaye Miles Davis and Tupac all have a song for any mood that I may be in. So those 3 guys.

(CB) Working on runway music for SS15 fashion week. I’m also opening a pop-up mens boutique in upstate NY that is launching in Fall of 2014.

This Thursday it’s going down at No. 8 in NYC. DJ For a Cure and PUMA are teaming up again for their second DJ4C event in the city.
An old-fashioned game night will be taking place, so if you’re competitive come out and you’ll get the chance to win some amazing prizes some of which are from KRINKnyc!
Austin Millz will be spinning along with Charles Browne. Chef Roble and the lovely DJ KISS will be the hosting for the night so you won’t want to miss that. DJ Quiana Parks plans on auctioning off one of her oil painting as a donation for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. So come out and support the DJ4C movement this Thursday, see you there!
Wednesday night I joined forces with renowned lifestyle brand PUMA to host the First Annual DJ For A Cure Art & Mix Show! Over 200 of New York’s key influences and tastemakers gathered at Mister H to raise over $5,000 dollars for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The room was filled with industry creatives such as Ty Hunter (Beyonce’s wardrobe stylist), Luke James (Grammy Nominated Recording Artist), Chef Roble (Bravo TV Reality Star), Shaun Ross (Model) and DJ D-Nice, Legendary Damon (Stylist) and more.
It was AH-May-ZING! I am an 8 year cancer survivor so for me this event hit close to home. It meant a lot to me to have all of my friends and family come out to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
Special Thanks to all of those who helped! -@quianaparks
