‘Party Mamas’ in Cordova

For Miesha Michelle Levy, last Saturday night was a teenager’s dream. And she’s still thanking the dream weavers – her parents, Arommet Records CEO and Memphis native recording artist Temmora (“Talk to Me,” LEG Records), and Dr. Arthur Levy, an emergency room physician.

Zapp Band
A party isn’t complete with out great music. The Zapp Band gave an awesome performance along with The Bar-Kays and a host of other local and national recording artists.

Miesha Michelle anxiously waits with her parents, Temmora and Dr. Arthur Levy, as her father gets the crowd’s attention to announce their special gift for the lady of the hour.

At their gorgeous Cordova mansion, the Levys hosted a birthday celebration for their daughter. Pink, green and red lights lit the front entry, with a red carpet leading to the extravagant birthday bash. I opted out of the valet parking and simply parked my older model Nissan on the street.

As I walked through the front doors of the home, I was quickly approached by a Canadian television camera crew filming for the Canadian television show “Party Mamas,” which is similar to the MTV show “Sweet Sixteen.” I sign a release form and then stepped into one of the best parties I have ever attended.

It’s not every day that you have the Bar-Kays and the Zapp Band at a party. In every direction I looked there was a Canadian guy with a camera trying to capture every single moment.

Miesha Michelle was clearly the real star of the night, with the cameras following her every move. Her party had all the glitz and glamour that a 15-year-old girl could ask for. The amount of money her parents spent was – one would guess – more than the average wedding cost in Memphis. Miesha’s birthday cake was fairly large, but even more interesting than the cake were the people serving it, with their attire perfect for the 1700s.

After eating cake, Miesha went for a wardrobe change into her dance outfit. She graced the stage dancing like a seasoned performer, dancing just as good as a young Janet Jackson or Ciara. I’m sure this will make for a good TV moment for the Canadian show “Party Mamas”.

In addition, Temmora took to the stage to perform one of her new singles entitled “Party,” which was of course fitting for her daughter’s birthday bash. The party also turned into a charity event, with Miesha Michelle donating $1,005 dollars to the American Prostate Cancer Research Fund established by her father in 2007.

Next, Dr. Levy took the microphone and announced that he had a gift to present to his daughter. It was the very moment that Miesha Michelle and the party guest had been waiting on.

It’s not an official birthday party without the gift of four wheels. Out in the driveway, Miesha and the crowd waited patiently for her gift to arrive.

“They got me a flipping Camaro and I can’t even drive yet, ”Miesha shouted with joy, as her friends began to debate who would get to ride in the passenger seat with Miesha once she gets her driver’s license.

After, all the excitement of the car was over, everyone went back inside to be amazed by the Zapp Band’s awesome performance. In my opinion, they had the most memorable performance of the night, and had everyone out of their seats dancing.

In addition to the Zapp Band and the Bar-Kays, the party guests included Glen Jones, Cupid of Cupid Shuffle, Chris J, G-Cove of Unrated, Karma, Reggie J, Ike Miles and Supa J, Cool Courtney, Durt Boi Mix, Don Trip, and LP Shwayze.

Cool Courtney helped bring the event to a close performing his local radio hit song “Pretty Boy.”

Canadians had better brace themselves to witness an awesome party once this Memphis birthday bash is aired on TV in Canada.
