The ICVM Crown Awards were filled with too many moments and memories to capture it properly in one blog post, so I am giving you just a few highlights. I led a “Selfie Moment” at the ‪#‎ICVMOhio‬ Crown Awards–taking a photo on stage with the emcee Heinz Winckler, winner of  South African Idol and actor.
