We met more than just a few celebrities at the GBK Green Smoke® Fashion Week event when we were in NYC. However, while you might not know her by name, you’ve probably heard plenty of her songs.
At Fashion Week we had the privilege to meet American songwriter Denise Rich. Denise has written songs and hits for performers like Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Jessica Simpson, Marc Antony, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan and Diana Ross, just to name a few.
She’s also been nominated for Grammy Awards a few times, most recently for the Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige duet, “Don’t Waste Your Time”. The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis chose her song “All I Wanna Be Is Understood” as its anthem. Denise also wrote “Love Will Set You Free”, recorded by Kelly Price.
Today, Denise is not only a songwriter but she also works as a philanthropist and political fundraiser. Needless to say she’s a fascinating woman to speak with and we were honored to meet such an accomplished artist. So, what did Denise have to say about Green Smoke®? She remarked, “This is a wonderful ‘green’ product”.
