Overview

Kesha STRAIGHT no-chasers An Urban Memoir written by Lakesha M. Townsend was inspired by the empowering and enduring connection with her friend and mentor Whitney Houston!
Growing up in 1980's Watts projects in Los Angeles, Lakesha M. Townsend witnessed the atrocities that were imposed upon the inner-city and its youth. Lakesha was virtually abandoned by her mother because of her mother's drug addiction. Lakesha struggled for many years to find and create her own identity. In the midst of that journey, Lakesha made it her mission to meet her idol and American icon Whitney Houston.
"About 25 years ago, I was listening to the Los Angeles radio station KGFJ when I heard a crystal-clear, powerful voice. The music that followed, about finding the greatest love of all, was the most touching song I'd ever heard".
I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride ...

Through the years, Whitney Houston's presence and encouragement have remained a constant in Lakesha's life. Kesha STRAIGHT no-chasers, An Urban Memoir looks deep into the heart of cultural beliefs, addiction, and the importance of having a support system to help you through it. Lakesha watched her mother and her friend Whitney struggle simultaneously with drug addiction. This exceptional story of triumph over impossible odds emphasizes the power of love and belief, and will capture your heart and uplift your soul. Kesha STRAIGHT no-chasers An Urban Memoir, is a passionate reminder that we can do and be anything if we just believe!
