Khadijah Sharif-Drinkard ’93 spent her early career approving music videos to air on BET; CCT
asked about her all-time favorite video hits.
“I still love “We are the World” — aka USA for Africa —because it has an important message and the lyrics are still relevant today. I also like that so many diverse musical performers came together on a gratis basis to help raise money for Africa at a very critical time of need.”
“I like New Edition’s videos and it is difficult to choose — perhaps “If It Isn’t Love,” because those are my favorite dance moves. I also like “Candy Girl”, “Cool it Now” or “Mr. Telephone Man,” because they remind me of my childhood and the fun I had with my siblings imitating and performing as the band. It also has special significance for me since I made the deal for the New Edition mini-series and it was the highest rated show of all time on BET!”
“Finally, I also really like Soul for Real’s “Candy Rain” because it was the best song to roller skate to.”
