“My first observation when walking in the room was there were four women and three men representing the civil rights community and several women of the Obama Administration.

Tiombe Lockhart-Gone

Tiombe Lockhart struts her semi-nude figure through various outdoor scenes and a club in Costa Rica in the video for her new single “Gone.” Lockhart says, “I wanted to show heartbreak through five different female archetypes:

1.The Crone, that lives at the bottom of the ocean, but came up in search for something.

4.The ATLIEN/Narrator that roams the ruins and jungle.
5. And my favorite: the dancer, the most passionate and sexual of them all.”
