St. Luke Foundation for Haiti | The Garage 

Supporters of St. Luke Foundation for Haiti came together for a star-studded event   
called, "Celebrating Haitian Heroes" at The Garage. The event was hosted by Kenneth Cole, Adriana Lima and Jozy Altidore. The organization honored Esther Desir and Raphael Louigene with The Kenneth Cole Humanitarian Award for providing medical care and education to the most under-served population in Haiti.

“What differentiates St. Luke Foundation for Haiti is their beliefs of collaborating with local leadership to instill real change and deeper connection within the communities they operate in,” said Kenneth Cole. “I’m excited to not only honor Esther and Raphael, but give them the stage to share their personal experiences working on the ground in Haiti.”

What inspired you to become a DJ?
I started my career in music in an all-girl group called Northern State. We toured with The Roots for two years and Questlove taught me to spin vinyl. The rest is history.
What's your go-to song guaranteed to get a crowd on the dance floor?
Everyone, everywhere from every walk of life loves Michael Jackson. It’s a guarantee.
Aside from creating music, what are your other passions? 
I am one of the producers of the NYC Drone Film Festival, our 2nd annual event which takes place in early March. It’s exciting to be part of a cultural event that celebrates artists and is helping to change the image of drones in popular culture.
 Where is the most unusual place you've performed? 
The amazing team at Spotify had me do two exciting things this year - first I DJ'ed the Nike Women’s Marathon on a beautiful vista overlooking Golden Gate Bridge. The all time was 6am!  Then at SXSW I DJ'ed a live collaboration with Soul Cycle, who are an inspirational group of people - and again, a 6am call time, very unusual for a DJ!
