Oprah's Karaoke Winner Joined Yoga Flava's "Restore By The Shore" [VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS]

During Yoga Flava's 2012 Spring It On Retreat, "Restore By The Shore" I was delighted to be able to do a video interview with inspirational singer, Abraham McDonald about his career, health and spirituality.

Being an Oprah fan, I remember watching Abraham win her Karaoke contest.  This charming, silky smooth singing, gentle giant has since then gone on to recently perform for First Lady Michelle Obama at a Women for Obama luncheon in Los Angeles.

“I was so honored to have been asked to sing at this event who knows, maybe I’ll get invited to the White House one day, especially because I believe that the letter “O” is a very lucky letter for me!” commented Abraham.

Hand-picked as the winner by the “Oprah” show karaoke challenge judges including producer David Foster, songwriter Diane Warren, and Antonio “L.A.” Reid, Chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group, who personally signed Abraham to the label, Abraham has also performed in front of the sold-out, 6,000-seat crowd at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A., sung the National Anthem at all major Los Angeles sporting events, and headlined “The Insider & Style A-List.” Abraham also has appeared on the “Oprah” show three times to debut his album and follow his start. Abraham also made a dent into the Billboard R&B charts last year with his chart-topper “Miracle,” as well as his recent follow-up effort in December, 2011, the already-classic R&B love song, “Love You.”

I was so excited when Lynn Allen Jeter and Associates informed me that he accepted my offer to come and "Restore By The Shore" and visit Creative Chakra Spa and Yoga Studio.  

Abraham acknowledges that he was "living without borders" when it came to his health.  His wake up call came when he was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes.  As a result, he got a trainer and lost 60 pounds. His motto is "Push your Dreams as if they are as Light as a Feather".

Check out the following Yoga Flava Video Snack which includes highlights from my interview with Abraham McDonald and the recent retreat in Marina Del Rey, California.  More of the interview with Mr. McDonald and our Yoga Flava session coming soon on a new episode of Yoga Flava TV for the Live Well Network.
