She has delighted audiences around the country, on the stages of major national venues, as well as the intimate settings such as café houses, and private clubs. Unparalleled, Heiress Ocean's popularity continues to soar.

Heiress "Sista Ocean" will appear in the award-winning film, The Good Life" premiering at the Rich Theatre in the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia Friday, July 25, 2008. It starts at 8 PM. The short film was directed by Ava DuVernay and produced by Ava DuVernay, Ellene V. Miles, Omid Walizadeh and Isaac Klotz.

The National Black Arts Festival is entering their twentieth year as the leading presenting arts and cultural organization in the United States. The organization recognizes and celebrates the art and artists of Africa and the African Diaspora. They are many things to many people - an inspiration, a transforming force, a legacy, a depository of intellectual property, a creative clearinghouse, a center for creative exchange and collaboration, an artistic resource and a celebration of the creative spirit. The 2008 Festival dates are July 18-July 27.

In 1989, a collective of young artists gathered weekly at The Good Life, a small health food store in Los Angeles. Their mission? To explore and expand the musical boundaries of hip hop. The core centers around a group of teenagers who revolutionized hip hop by innovating rhyme patterns, melodic concepts, and lyrical styles, used by many of today's biggest rap stars. Despite earning billions of dollars for the recording industry, 'The Good Life' emcees have toiled in relative obscurity in the United States. Much like their jazz heroes of a bygone era, these street poets have garnered a rabid and musically sophisticated fan base abroad, with a cult-like following in Germany, Australia, France, England and Japan. A feature-length documentary, directed by former Good Life emcee, Ava DuVernay, chronicles the rise and fall of an unusual family of artists, while examining their obstacles to commercial success. They all took different paths, but remain connected by the music they made, the alternative hip hop movement they developed, and their worldwide influence on the art form. Among the film's awards are: Audience Favorite Documentary, 2008 Los Angeles, PAFF; and Honorable Mention, Best Documentary, 2008 PAFF, Los Angeles.
