MIAMI GARDEN — Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan’s signature Music in the Park series had attendees snapping their fingers, tapping their toes and dancing to several classic R&B hits on Dec. 5 as the show played host to BNS Entertainment and the Rodney Kendrick Trio featuring Rhonda Ross, daughter of famed songstress Diana Ross.
Several hundred residents set up their lawn chairs to enjoy the Ladies in Red as they took to the microphone and brought the audience to their feet. The semi-annual event was held at the Betty T. Ferguson Recreational Complex – Amphitheater in Miami Gardens.
“This is my opportunity to showcase local talent in Miami-Dade County and throughout South Florida,” said Commissioner Jordan. “We featured a sister and brother duo from Homestead, as well as Diana Ross’ son-in-law, who is from Miami and performs with his wife Rhonda Ross.”
This is the seventh series for Commissioner Jordan, who is passionate about engaging residents and implementing activities that foster a sense of community.
Music in the Park was sponsored by the Miami-Dade Parks Foundation, City of Miami Gardens Vice Mayor Felicia Robinson, Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs Department, Sunshine Jazz Organization, and the Office of Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan.
