Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders Alumni 2012 Reunion

On September 29, 2012 there were over 100 Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders from all eras (60's/70's/80's/90's/00's) who performed at the Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers game. The Alumni prepared for the performance practicing twice a week for 2 months at Just Fitness 4U Health Club located at 6335 Roswell, Road in Sandy Springs, GA.  The staff at the health club was amazing and so accommodating to our group.  

The Alumni did an encore performance of one of their favorite routines.  The 5 minute halftime performance was a montage of Michael Jackson songs choreographed by the very talented former Falcons Cheerleaders, Kelly Stewart Barker, Kristy Korpieski Carder, Melvina Edwards, Jakene Ashford and Kelli Williams. The Alumni gather for reunions every 2 years.  The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders Alumni are an exclusive group that has over 300 members in the organization managed by former Falcons Cheerleader Michele "Mickey" Crawford-Carnegie

Her website is where you can read about GLOW and see pricing for products and services here. Thanks Jillian!



From Alum, Celeste Podojil – Music Business Opportunity
A good friend of Celeste is in the music business! She advised this is a great opportunity for some of our talented past and present AFC to get in the spotlight and earn some cash too.

Please see from her friend:
As many of you know, our Eagle Ear team has recently launched a growing online music community called where Artists and Music Fans can view and upload music videos, battle, comment, rate and interact on the site... Both Artists and Fans can set up their profile as an interactive EPK, gather points to achieve Rock Star status, eventually redeem points for free giveaways, and so much more!

In an effort to populate our website, we've just launched a $2500 Cash Prize contest for the Artist who gathers the most votes across video battles, and a free autographed Guitar by Adam Levine of Maroon 5 worth $2000 for the Music Fan who continues to vote for active battles throughout the contest period. This contest begins Monday, March 30, 2009 and ends Friday May 30, 2009.

We at Eagle Ear would be indebted if you not only check out the site for yourself at, but please forward to anyone and everyone you know! And seriously, Please! Anyone and everyone you know... especially musicians interested in making a buck.

We eagerly accept any and all feedback as well, as we are a new company trying to get our feet off the ground. In an effort to raise capital for the website and coordinating record label, Eagle Ear is also plotting a Rockumentary Series where monthly Battle winners will be flown to L.A. for a week long rendezvous of shopping, performing at local hot spots, glamorous dinners, nights out on the town, all while shaking a few famous hands... and it all starts with the website! We plan on discovering our talent and talent winners through User Generated Music Videos, where artists launch their own careers.

So get to it! And let us know what you think...
Thanks so much!
Jennifer Young
