I had the pleasure of attending and covering Kelly Price‘s Birthday Brunch on Sunday afternoon. The VIP only event took place at T.I.‘s Scales 925 Restaurant in Midtown Atlanta and also served as the official launch of her new foundation—Look2Live.
Kelly created Look2Live to assist families in dealing with loved ones who were diagnosed with cancer. It’s a passion project that was conceived over 10-years-ago after her mother and mother-in-law were both diagnosed with the deadly disease. For Price, it is not about people surviving cancer but overcoming it.

“I wrote this plan up over 10 years because I wanted to be able to be involved with the lives of the families. Not to just aide them financially but to offer emotional support and spiritual support and everything that is needed in those times. I believe if we can keep the family solid and where they need to be then our loves one have a better chance at beating cancer. I also don’t believe in surviving, I believe in overcoming. Surviving is not God’s will in our lives, He wants us to overcome,” said Price to the audience.

A number of Kelly’s close friends and associates were in attendance to celebrate her launch including hip-hop star MC Lyte, television personality Miss Lawrence, BMI executive Catherine Brewton, Gospel radio announcer Darlene McCoy, reality star and fashionista Marlo Hampton and rapper Rico Love. Members from Kelly’s greek-lettered organization, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., were also in attendance and announced their national support of her Look2Live Foundation.
Entertainment was provided by gospel singer Anita Wilson and Atlanta soul music star Algebra. The brunch was hosted by Nicci Gilbert with greetings from Lynn Richardson of Hip Hop Sisters and Kelly’s manager Gabby Sands.
