It’s a wet and snowy day here in Maryland, but I plan on spending the day inside playing Battlefield 3( love the online play and amazing graphics) and doing some school work as well. I know a few weeks ago I posted information about my brother, dancer and choreographer Jamile McGee dancing with Gloria Estefan on The View, but he was also on The Rosie Show and Jay Leno. He did a great job performing and had a lot of fun working with Gloria and the other dancers, but I also forgot to mention that while he was in New York tapping on The View, he had gotten a direct hire to dance in Mary J. Blige’s video “25/8″.
Through out most of his dance career after making it big on season 1 of So You Think You Can Dance?, Jamz (Jamile) has had the opportunity to work with many great artists and appear in their music videos, as well as commercial, television, and tour work. He’s met some pretty cool people, but he did say that Mary J. Blige was very nice and so down to earth. Her new song “25/8″ is such a great song and the video features some pretty nice dance scenes as well. I’m so proud of Jamz for being such an amazing dancer and showing people that you can make a career out of dance, you just have to believe in yourself, and being insanely talented doesn’t hurt either.
Check out the video below! You can see Jamile in some of the dance scenes. At one point he’s in front on the ground next to Mary J. Blige and she pushes his head back with her hand. I love how she looks in this video, so powerful, confident, and just doing her thing!

I usually don’t watch The View, but today I actually sat down and watched an entire episode. The episode was pretty good, but the best part was seeing my brother, Jamile McGee, having a blast dancing on stage with Gloria Estefan. The performance was awesome! He had so much fun dancing and he said Gloria Estefan is such a sweet person. I can totally imagine that. She doesn’t seem like the type of musician who would be a diva and act like everyone beneath her is a peasant. Some musicians and celebrities act like that, it’s disgusting.
Gloria Estefan is a great musician and she seems like such a nice person. I’m glad my brother was able to perform on The View with her today and he was able to make it look so effortless. Her new song “Wepa” is such a fast paced song, but since my brother has been dancing all his life and around the world; it was a breeze for him.
Check out the fast paced performance below and be sure to support my brother Jamile McGee. Follow him on twitter @jamilemcgee and be sure to take one of his dance classes if you live in DC or Maryland. He is such an amazing dancer and has such a beautiful personality. I can truly say that I have the best brother in the world and I can’t wait for him to get back from New York so we can play PS3 together. Shout out to my brother Jamz, love you so much and congrats on dancing on The View with Gloria Estefan. You rock!!!!
Watch the video!!! Jamile is the tall Black guy wearing the plaid shirt I helped him pick out at Burlington and a trendy blue sweater from H&M. One thing I can say, is that my brother has a great sense of style. Baggy clothes have never been his thing. He has travelled around the world and has seen so much culture, so he has a amazing style. We have to go shopping together soon!
