CHICAGO – Happy 18th Birthday to Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas, who made history at the 2012 London Olympic Games by becoming the first U.S. Olympian to win gold in both the individual and team competitions at the same Olympics, and the first African American U.S. gymnast to become individual all-around champion.

In 2014, a TV movie is being planned about her life, entitled “The Gabby Douglas Story,” which is rumored to star Regina King. HollywoodChicago.com photographer Joe Arce captured Gabby Douglas in May of 2013, as she was appearing at Barnes & Noble in Skokie, Ill., signing her memoir, “Raising the Bar.”

    CHICAGO – No one would call talented one-man-show artist John Michael conventional, at least if they are in their right mind. So ironically, after tackling sexually transmitted disease in his last solo performance, he takes on the vagrancies of old age and caring for elderly patients in his truly heartfelt “Dementia Me.”
