FOR LIFE! Our Diva Goddess Vanessa Williams and daughter, Jillian Hervey, shared their personal experience with heart disease – the no. one killer of women – at the #KNOCKOUTHEARTDISEASE event at Burlington’s Union Square in New York City. The event kicks off Burlington and WomenHeart’s seventh annual partnership in the fight against heart disease in women. From Feb. 1 through March 31, all Burlington stores nationwide are encouraging customers to educate themselves about the importance of their heart health and to support those women living with heart disease. Select stores will be hosting free heart health screening events on March 20. Watch Vanessa and Jillian’s story below, along with model Pamela Thomas who fought against heart disease – and shares her secrets to maintaining your Divalicious health!
FOR SONG! Nothing touches the heart like music!

On Valentine’s Day, they’ll perform “Lyric of Love: An Evening of Music, Poetry, Power & Magic,” to celebrate love in all its dimensions. Presented by Harlem Stage, the legendary uptown venue that for over 30 years has promoted the creative legacy of Harlem and artists of color from around the corner and across the globe, Rhonda and Rodney will unveil new music as well as songs from their respective careers. The Harlem-based duo will inspire through music and their obvious passion for art, community, activism and each other (they are married, ya know!). Join them for this melodic love affair on WEDNESDAY, Feb. 14, 7:30 p.m. at New York City’s Harlem Stage Gatehouse. Tickets are $20.
