A Claire Mike: Singer/Model on Volunteering, Art & Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation

As a Singer/Songwriter, Aisha has worked with John Legend, Luther Vandross, Mos Def, Talib Kwali, Dead Prez, Carly Simon, Good Charlotte, and the Marley Family to name a few. However, I was drawn to the Volunteering she is doing at Bed-Stuy’s Restoration Corporation’s Center for Arts & Culture. I filmed her at the Eyewitness: Beautiful Black Brooklyn 1960’s-1980 exhibition. She shared her story, sang and I interviewed 1 of the photographers, Randolph “Randy” Waterman.

Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari's, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
