Wow!!! Are you serious?

I hadn't heard of Jackie Neal until a couple of years ago while going through South Louisiana on my way to the BC. She was a in studio guest on one of the local radio stations talking about a new album that was coming out. They played some of the songs from the album and I was laughing my ass off they were so funny. I instantly became a fan.

Hate to hear that about Jackie.

Who?

She was pretty much a local artist. She comes from a local family full of musical artist. She was killed by an ex-boyfriend who then turned the gun on himself. He survived the attempted suicide.

Here is the story from this mornings paper.

I figured she was a local artist, but she won me over when I heard the words to her song, "I'm not in love with you, I just in love with yo stuff!" :lol:

Dayum I hate to hear this.

Yes indeed, she laid it down didn't she? SOGGY have you heard "That's How We Roll?" I love it and you will too, it's on her last CD.

Raful Neal died last fall. The Neal family's band is awesome. The son Kenny and the daughter Jackie were the headliners. The band played before and after Southern's home football games this year. They missed one, to bury Raf, but were back the next game. They are a very close knit family and were deeply sorrowed by the passing of the family's patriach, I know this has devastated them.

They played for the Mayor's inagural ball and did they turn it out! :tup:

So sad...

People were all over the place at the Great Hall.





Overflow crowd turns out for Jackie Neal's funeral (http://www.2theadvocate.com/stories/031605/new_neal001.shtml)
By JOSH NOEL

Nearly 3,000 people jammed the Great Hall at the Bellemont to pay respects Tuesday to the slain Baton Rouge blues and soul singer, a crowd so overwhelming that some of it had to be turned away.
The crush of mourners filled entrances into the hall throughout the morning as visitors jockeyed for position near Neal's open casket.

But about 45 minutes before the service, her family tried to clear the hall of everyone but Neal's relatives in an effort to restore calm.

"I just wish they could have turned up for her like that while she was living," said Neal's first cousin, Kristy Jackson, 28. "If she could have had this much love when she was living, how great would that be?"

Even after an extra ballroom was opened for the 1 p.m. religious service, hundreds of mourners were still left in the hall's foyer while police and firefighters guarded the doors.

Far more people -- as many as 1,000 -- tried to view Neal in her casket, but were unable because the crowd was too large. Many of those people were able to get into the service, but still left disappointed.

"I really wanted to see her, but I couldn't," said Earl Johnson, 37, a Baton Rouge firefighter who said he was a friend of Neal's. "It would have been my last time seeing her on this side."

Just then, Roy Roberts, 49, who said he grew up with Neal in Erwinville, leaned in and said, "She looked beautiful."

For four hours before the service, Neal laid amid the aroma of fresh flowers in an open white casket.

She wore a rose-pink dress adorned at the chest with feathers of the same color and sparkling snowflake-shaped earrings. Her lips and eyelids were painted red and her hair, cropped close at the sides, was spiked on top.

Dude you wrong..(but I couldn't help but lmao).

Jackie was good people...Several years ago her Dad, She, and Ray Jr played at our club in North La. I used to visit them over at the old Peyton Lounge on Arcadian when they opened it as Neal's Place. Good people and talented family.

SMH....normally I'm good at reading between the lines...Jackie Neal was a very popular play on the blues station here in these parts. Didn't know much about her but I know she was a Cancer just like me. I remember she had the symbol on one of her CD covers. Did Ms. Neal like to play in the dugout or something??? An inquiring mind would like to know..... :p :p :p

I would like to give my condolences to the Neal family. Jackie was a wonderful performer and she will be missed in these parts of Mississippi. I had the opportunity to meet her when she performed in Hattiesburg, MS. She was kind and wonderful. Not only was she nice, but her family was also. Her sister Charlene and nephew Tyree. I just pray that God forever keep them, and they stay close as a family.

I heard he told no one to move, but that lady made a dash for the door, but she couldn't outrun a bullet.

White was arrested March 10th at the beauty shop where he allegedly shot Jackie Neal. Authorities said White tried to kill himself that night, but was unsuccessful.

At last report, White's attorney, Nelvil Hollingsworth, was on his way to the hospital to personally check on his client's condition.

Yeah he was successful at killing Jackie, but can't take himself out. This is his second attempt.
