ST. LOUIS, Mo. – As 2020 prepares to take its final bow, The Hip Hop Mamas, directed by DJ Reggie of Pure Entertainment Company is spreading holiday cheer, while giving back to the community.

Friday morning, they were at City Coffee in Clayton, showing off their holiday spirit.

Dressed like Jolly Old Saint Nick, complete with full white beard Reggie and the Hip Hop Mamas turned the streets of Frontenac into a dance floor, dancing hip hop to holiday tunes.

“It is all about having fun,” said DJ Reggie. “All of the Santa’s are moms that are apart of my Hip-Hop Core workout group, and a lot of people are shocked that the Santas can break it down like that”.

The group of nine moms and Reggie captured the attention of drivers while dancing to “All I Want for Christmas Is You” played on a speaker. They also wear green jingle bell bracelets on their wrist.

This is the 10th year the group has been performing for charities throughout St. Louis and DJ Reggie says this year is special because they are raising money for University City Children’s Center.

“University City Children’s Center is a local organization that nurtures the growth and development of children, said Reggie. “And since we have gotten such a good response over the years, we decided to do something good and raise money for this amazing organization”.

The video has been seen by more than 119,00 people on Facebook since it was uploaded on Saturday.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
