Keep Kids Safe, Send-A-Kid to Camp Thursday with Radio One Richmond

Comments:  | Leave A Comment




It’s a boy! Alphonso and Kimberly Jones-Booker were the proud parents of Alexander Lance Booker who was born on a cold day December 18, 1994. “Lil Alex” was such a joy to his parents, family and his godmother Clovia Lawrence. He was a fun loving kid and was actually my practice child if I were to ever consider having children. Alex spent his summers with me from the age of four until his death on JUNE 15, 2007. I received word that Alex, my baby, was dead on Saturday morning at 2 a.m. just 8-days before the start of summer camp and hours before I hit the stage for the Stone Soul Music and Food Festival.

Alex was fluent in speaking Spanish, a smart student, loved football and NASCAR or simply fast cars. On June 15, he met new friends who challenged him to play on a construction site because there were ATV’s and they could take a ride. Alex was excited, runs to the construction site, gets hurt and his friends ran off. Alex, my godson, was let to die in the dirt alone.
