DJ Candice McKenzie: B.W.I.E 10th Anniversary Shero

B.W.I.E 10th Anniversary

Black Women in Europe Blog™ 10th Anniversary notes:

I picked Candice to be a Black Women in Europe Blog10th Anniversary Shero for many reasons but mainly for her positive energy that I find completely infectious! I first blogged about Candice in March 2009 when I learned about her Dolly Mixes. She is known for her signature blend of house and Gospel music that makes me want to sing and dance and laugh at the same time. I also chose Candice for her drive, diverse appeal and creativity. I am thrilled to announce DJ Candice McKenzie has created an exclusive 10th Anniversary mixtape for us:

I hope you like our exclusive B.W.I.E 10th Anniversary Mixtape as much as I do. Feel free to download it, be sure to share it via Twitter, Facebook and all the other usual suspects. Leave a comment for Candice, she’s a darling.

Thank you Candice for celebrating our 10th! Thanks for being our Shero.
