Here’s a look at her new website. Check it out: http://chaneljasmin.com/
VIP FOR THE MAXFAM AT CBS EARLY SHOW TAPING
The day after Maxwell’s release of BLACKsummers’night, if that wasn’t treat enough, 40 members (and friends) of the MAXWELLfanforum were given VIP passes to be up close and personal at a mini-concert on the CBS Plaza. With ‘blue roses’ in hand, the MAXfam were at the stage and gave Maxwell much love along with hundreds of others who were in attendance. The day did not stop there as some of the MAXfam also attended a private concert that evening at the P.C. Richard Theater. MAXfam tickets for the evening concert were courtesy of iheartradio.com. Thank you iheartradio for being a tremendous supporter of the MAXWELLfanforum!
MAXFAM ON THE SET OF GMA WITH MAXWELL
New York MAXfam received another treat when they were invited to the set of Good Morning America to watch Maxwell’s live performance. It was another special Maxwell MAXfam encounter that none will soon forget!
After leaving the studio, Maxwell tweeted and thanked the ‘Blue Rosed Beauties’ who were on set.
Samantha aka Ghettosongbird, our own resident MAXfam rocker has been working hard on her debut video. She is a huge Maxwell fan as well as a huge Lenny Kravitz fan. She credits as one of her mentors, the legendary ‘Wah Wah’ Watson. More details to follow, but in the meantime, she’ll be coming to a venue near you. This diminutive lady is one vocal powerhouse. Check her out on tour!
HOUSE OF BLUE ROSES
On Sept. 2, 2009, The House of Blues in Boston, Mass. hosted a free Maxwell concert sponsored by AT&T/Samsung as part of the Summerkrush Concert Series. This was a big night in Boston and fans whipped lines around the block for the chance to enter what was rumored to be a taped performance for Maxwell’s upcoming live DVD. The MAXFam aka the ‘Blue Rosed Beauties’, were right up front at the stage. For this special event - which included a scavenger hunt for blue roses (with the winner being presented a ticket for the show) - the House of Blues was renamed the ‘House of Blue Roses’, for the night.
MAXFAM ACCEPTED AT INT’L FILM FESTIVALS
Dana aka Hummingbird was just accredited for two major film festivals - The Telluride Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival. Go to the forum to read her full bio and how this exciting opportunity finally came to her at a most inopportune time. Congrats, Dana! We’re so proud of you.
BISCUIT IN THE MOVIES
Kimberly aka KimBiscuit has been busy pursuing her goal of being in the movies. Her initial dream of being a voiceover artist is already coming true, as she has booked her first job. Now, she is starting to get in front of the camera as well. She will be an extra in the 2010 Disney release of Secretariat, starring Diane Lane. It’s a start, but her MAXfam knows that it won’t be long before she will be in front of the camera in a speaking role. Go, Kim! Another MAXfam following her dreams.
As proof positive to just how much the MAXfam is truly a family, several members secretly got together and contributed money for the purchase of a MacBookPro computer and scanner/copier/fax machine to present to MFF owner, missmusze. The plan was spearheaded by Michelle aka gr81shelly, New York Group Leader & Jennifer aka jennjonesy (pictured). The surprise was videotaped as Diana aka HisChyna ambushed missmusze and presented her with her gifts. The group openly tweeted throughout the day about the surprise and duped missmusze into thinking they were talking about the NY Meetup which was taking place the same day.

MAXFAM MEETUP AT MSG
The MAXWELLfanforum had their biggest concert meetup to date, as 20 strong (not all shown) were in attendance at Maxwell’s sold out concert at Madison Square Garden. Many ‘blue rosed beauties’ tweeted throughout the concert, bringing the magic to those who were unable to attend. One particular highlight occured when Maxwell took a blue rose, put it in his teeth and proceeded across the stage. A great time was had by all, including two members who ended their 3 day concert trek by stating it was the ‘best concert’ of them all!
Check out everyone’s recaps on the forum.

MAXFAM AT THE GRAMMYS WITH MAXWELL
On July 31, 2010, Maxwell won the first two grammys of his career. Five MAXfam were in attendance for the awards. During the show, Yolanda aka MissCrumb personally presented Maxwell with a plaque backstage to congratulate Maxwell on this honor, as well as for the first CD from his BLACKsumers’night trilogy being ceritifed platinum.
The inscription was as follows:
Although awards are not necessary to validate one’s worth, your Grammy win is long overdue. We are extremely proud that you have been acknowledged by so many for your exceptional talents and congratulate you on your Platinum selling album.
We have been there to support you throughout the years and we will continueto follow your journey. We hope we’ve made you feel as good as you’ve made us feel. “it really is about the music”.
The names of members who contributed to the gift were listed on the plaque. Yolanda also presented Maxwell with a card that included the names of members who contributed to Yele Haiti on his behalf. The group raised $1,600. Needless, to say, he was very appreciative and thanked Yolanda for the gifts.

MAXWELL WEEKEND IN NYC
Over 20 MAXfam strong, headed to New York City for a fun-filled weekend. Although, a few were native New Yorkers, most traveled from all across the country and two members even came from Canada. Starting with VIP passes to the TODAY SHOW on June 25th, the ladies got in line at 5am in the morning - some without sleep - and were treated to sound check, the on air performance and hugs from Maxwell after the performance.
Many attended the MAXfam lunch, while others tried to catch up on their rest for the Friday night concert. After the concert, some attended Jill Scott’s afterparty.
The fun continued on Saturday, with another lunch and shopping. After Saturday night’s concert, the ladies headed to Maxwell’s afterparty at the Renaissance. Members were surprised that Max recognized many of them by face and knew their name. He was very gracious and again spoke with the ladies and gave them hugs.
Check out the forum for their recaps and the gallery for pictures of the memorable weekend.
