Accolade after accolade, Ray Lavender is definitely a winner:
After scoring a hit single with “My Girl Gotta Girlfriend”, who can forget him winning Omarosa’s heart on Donald Trump’s “The Ultimate Merger”?
Not to mention, Lavender was signed to Akon’s Konlive record label — alongside none other than Lady Gaga. Following collaborations with the likes of R. Kelly, Tank & T.Pain among others, Ray Lavender is now a member of a new independent label, Global Artist Group.
I recently had the pleasure to catch up with Mr. Lavender to discuss his current & future endeavors, including new music, his recent cover of Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature”, his forthcoming starring role in a Sam Cooke biopic & whether or not he still talks to Omarosa.

On Sunday, March 11, Oprah sits down with Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina; her sister-in-law, Patricia Houston; and her brother, Gary Houston, on a special episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter airing at 9/8c, only on OWN. Bobbi Kristina shares personal memories of her mom and how she would like the iconic superstar to be remembered. The family also addresses the rumors and speculation surrounding Houston’s death.
Watch a sneak peek below:
Of the interview, Bobbi Kristina says that Oprah “was loyal to [her] mom, & never did my mother wrong, or made her look bad. She always looked out for my mom.”
As a result, Bobbi feels Oprah would show her the same respect by not bringing up issues that could potentially show Bobbi in a negative light.
According to sources close to Bobbi, Oprah was one of the first people who reached out to her after Whitney passed.
