Welcome to Kra Riddell’s Woman of the Year Homepage!

Kra Riddell- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society- Woman of the Year

Why am I a candidate?

I want to make a difference in the world, whether it directly affects one person that can pass their life change on to another, many people at once, or a domino effect of events that creates a better atmosphere for our society and community. Last November of 2010, I woke up one morning with a phenomenal feeling of inspiration. Honestly, while I was taking a shower, I wondered “what is my purpose,” “how can I make a difference in a society that has grown so distant from our neighbors?” This feeling of change and re-evolution, where people to care of people to better the world. I thought and thought, of how I, Kra Riddell a 21 year-old college graduate that works more than often could possibly have the power or influence to better my community, the nation, but the world. I began remembering a wonderful society, that my company, Lethal Rhythms sponsored June of 2010, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My mind began spinning, I would run for Woman of the Year 2011 and raise awareness of LLS, funds for research and treatments, and hopefully influence young woman in a time when jobs are scare and education is mere commonality to succeed. I thought this could be a global example of true passion and care for people that I have no connection or familiarity with.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Fortunately, I was nominated for a cause and asked to run as a candidate in December 2010. I was so honored that I still feel as if it is a dream that I am unprepared for. This chance of a lifetime to make a difference is such an honor. I understand what it is like to lose someone close, a family member, a friend, a supporter, but I have not experienced friends or family going through stages of Leukemia or Lymphoma. I was nominated for a cause and am dedicated to our future. I will learn more about blood cancer, from the potential causes to advanced research that is being used in remission today. I’m hoping to create vast awareness of the 10-week campaign period and promote good help and support nationally and globally. My personal goal is to raise $30,000 toward this cause, which 90% goes back to research and patient treatment. Though it may seem like such a small contribution, I hope it will be a start for others to take action, whether it is big or small because every action we take can make a difference tomorrow. How you can support me? I ask that you join me by making a contribution to my fundraising campaign. Each dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most donations is named the local Man or Woman of the Year. I am raising money in honor of The Boy and Girl of the year, Jordan and Christina, local children in the Atlanta, GA who are blood cancer survivors. I truly hope to help find cures for blood cancers.

David Guetta In The Making

If Lethal Rhythms had to choose a favorite DJ to write about their accomplishments, we would have to give recognition to David Guetta! Born in Paris, France, David Guetta became a professional producer and DJ that originally began his career in nightclubs during the 1980’s and 1990’s. One particular trait that DJ David Guetta displays is bringing in the top artists to collectively create the sickest beats.

David Guetta- Lethal Rhythms

As of today, David Guetta has released four albums, which include the following: Just A Little More Love, Guetta Blaster, Pop Life, and One Love. In addition to releasing four albums three hot singles made it to the top 5 in the US and all three made it to #1 in the UK!

Here are David’s hottest singles:

When Love Takes Over

David Guetta is known for producing the craziest beats of all time. This video is a perfect demonstration for showing his unique chameleon ability to work with a variety of music. Kelly Rowland and Guetta made an amazing team for this video. He did an incredible job creating the perfect background beats to her “romantic” themed lyrics. During the video, keep an eye out for his quirky, fun-loving side that shows as he dances and hangs with Rowland!

Gettin’ Over You

Guetta incorporates the hottest artists in this video, like Fergie, LMFAO, and Chris Willis, while showing him mixing the sickest beats. He did an astonishing job displaying how chill he is to work with. For example, when you see everyone crowd in the room as they are recording and he “just goes with the flow”. Seeing him in action, bringing in the top artists of today, and incorporating his laid back personality really brought this video to life!

Sexy Chick

This music video truly shows Guetta’s original mixing style. His beats are perfect for the club scene and put Sexy Chick on the top of the charts since its release. Guetta showed his fun; cool side when he enterd during the pool party, then got thrown into the pool! Working with Akon, another talented artist, just goes to show how unique his mixing style is.

No more cheesy music or artists featured at your event! As professional remix DJ’s and MC’s, Lethal Rhythms appreciates the work of other talented artists, such as David Guetta! When booking Lethal Rhythms, you will have the reassurance of receiving the best of the best.

This is a great way for Lethal Rhythms to learn their story! Mindy Prince and David Soria booked Lethal Rhythms DJ Joel Rabe, Lethal Video, and our customized CD favors for their wedding on April 2, 2011 at The Mansion on Forsyth Park in Savannah, GA. Here’s how their romantic fairytale began.

Mindy and Dave- Lethal Rhythms

Lethal Rhythms wanted to know the following about Mindy and Dave:

How did you enter into each other’s lives?

May 8th, 2005 Dave and I met at a bar called Brother Jimmy’s on the Upper East Side while we were both living in NYC.

For the bride: What was it, that demonstrated that this person was someone unique and

someone you would want to spend the rest of your life with?

I loved how he treated his sisters and mothers.  I knew he was very genuine and has been nothing but caring and selfless to me.

Please explain the scenario around the engagement.

The first week of October 2009, Dave told me I had to go to a business meeting with him and a client on that Friday which is not unusual.  He had chosen a restaurant at the beach call 11 South which is a VERY nice restaurant and one of our favorites.  Friday rolled along and I came home from work and took a nap.  I had to get up and iron my clothes for the evening.  While I was ironing in my sweats and looking somewhat unattractive, Dave was talking to me.  As he was talking he mentioned that he called my father.  Instantly, I got nervous and I turn around to put up the iron and I was like “For what????” and he said “For permission”……..and even more nervous I was like “Permission for what” and I turned around he was on one knee and said to “Marry Me”.  My instant reaction was to grab the ring out of the box and put it on my finger and then I said “Yes”.  Needless to say, there was no business dinner, but we still went out to dinner at 11 South and had a fabulous engagement dinner.

Why did you choose your facility?

We chose Savannah because we do have any family locally and it’s an easy not to mention beautiful location for all our guests.  It has so much to offer.  We chose the Mansion on Forsyth Park because I fell in love with it’s amazing art and eclectic furniture and chandeliers.

Mansion on Forsyth Park

Is there any personal significance to your bridal cake? And will there be a grooms cake? If so, what is the design of the cake going to be and why was that design chosen?

I wanted a piece of art incorporated on the cake. There is a grooms cake but it will be displayed during the Rehearsal Cocktail Hour.  It is the NY Yankees “NY” emblem.  Dave loves his Yankees.

What are your favorite Artists?

Mario Testino (photographer), Annie Leibovitz (photographer), Van Gogh, Matisse, Mark Rothko, and I adore Andy Warhol.

Why did you choose Lethal Rhythms?

After long research on the internet, we found that Lethal Rhythms was the most compatible to our style.  I didn’t want an “ordinary” DJ.  Music is an EXTREMELY important part of my life and it was important for me to work with someone who “gets it”.

“These guys are unbelievable! I cannot even begin to put into words how happy I was with them. From the ceremony music, dancing, keeping folks entertained, etc…they were best in class. I received more compliments on a job well done and just how professional and genuine they were to our guests, to other vendors, etc. I would get married again just to have the chance to use Lethal Rhythms again and again! Of course, to the same guy!

I have no preference to anyone there although DJ Joel was our guy……he had a team with him and everyone was exceptional. I could not be happier about using them! You can’t go wrong with these guys!”

The Importance of Hiring a Good DJ

There are several variables you should take into consideration when hiring a Professional DJ. Below, one of our potential clients gave us her feedback after choosing another DJ for her wedding day:

Lethal Rhythms Wedding

Vanessa S. Kim January 12 at 5:16pm Report

Hi Joel! You might not remember me but I was a bride referred through Esther last year and you kindly gave me a 30-minute consultation the first time we talked. I remember wanting to book you immediately, but there was a part of me that was so stubborn about getting the best deal possible, and also not understanding how important it was to have an experienced DJ. Well I found out about another DJ who was charging less because he was new to the wedding biz but a great “club” DJ, so I assumed I hit a deal.

So the reason I’m writing you is to tell you that the single BIGGEST regret I have from my wedding is not booking you for the DJ. I suppose not every wedding can be perfect, but it really has bothered me so much, as I realize now your talent and how important it is to have a great DJ, who is also a great MC. So I wanted to just thank you for being so patient and nice in the consultation you gave me, and also let you know, although I’m sure you tell brides this already, that I realize now having an experienced, charismatic DJ is worth every penny.

I hope your business continues to flourish and you continue to make people’s weddings amazing!


Lethal Rhythms understands the importance of hiring a DJ along with the factors that you take into consideration during this process.

1)      Lethal Rhythms realizes that your budget is a very important aspect of the event planning process, but we want you to understand that “you get what you pay for.” You have to remember that you are not just paying to have someone put together a playlist for your event; if it was that easy, you could do it yourself, right? When booking Lethal Rhythms, you are pay for your own Professional DJ/MC that has the proper experience and works with you on a personal basis. You are paying for a DJ that specifically creates music catered to your style, taste, and vision. Last, but not least, you are paying for a DJ that works hands on with you and is dedicated to the success of your event as much as you are. Lethal Rhythms will give you the best of the best. Your DJ is the main source of entertainment at your event and it’s okay to be picky, but choose wisely.

2)      Lethal Rhythms also understands that this process may seem to last forever. When choosing a DJ, you should take your time and work with a DJ company that knows how to help you. Lethal Rhythms takes time to personally meet your needs and standards. It is our dedication to your event that makes our team stand out. We have seven DJ’s and each have their own personal style. We personally take the time to speak with you and narrow down which Lethal Rhythms DJ is compatible with your style and expectations. In addition to making your search easier, we offer personal planners to help you create a flawless wedding day. Booking with Lethal Rhythms couldn’t be easier!

3)      Lastly, consider the DJ’s equipment used when choosing a DJ. Lethal Rhythms knows how important this it is to have updated, high-end, and professional equipment, but do you? Our DJ’s have access to the latest technology including wireless setups. More importantly, Lethal Rhythms always prepares for the unexpected to guarantee your special moments go flawlessly!

Thank you Vanessa for your kind words and we are sorry to hear that your special day was not as successful as it should have been. We appreciate your feedback and would be honored to be a part of any future event you may hold! Lethal Rhythms knows this process is time consuming, but it is extremely important. Taking a look at Vanessa’s story will hopefully help you understand the importance of choosing the perfect DJ, not based on price, but quality!
