Alone with Cedric is Special Events Coordinator Kwanishia Nelson. 

Wilmington native Kwanishia Nelson planned her first talent show back in October 2011 after her Daughter Makyn’ze’s dad Alquon went missing. The Talent Show was to raise money for the Cue Center for missing persons, she didn’t think it would have such a great turn out. She couldn’t believe how many people showed her support and wanted her to do more events. So she decided to put together a dance group to open up for her talent shows, so she produced a dance team with young girls in the neighborhood. She named the dance team “Alquon’s Angels” after Makyn’ze’s dad.  After the talent show Kwanishia became a mentor/role model to all of the girls on Alquon’s Angels.  What started off as a sad situation that Kwanishia felt she would never get over transformed into a positive movement that the whole city could embrace.
