The Moment I Knew I Loved Miami: Lea Black Talks Culture (WATCH)

There's always a lot of smack talk about our fine city so we thought we'd ask for some rare positive feedback on Miami. What was the exact moment you knew you loved living here?

For Real Housewife of Miami and charity maven Lea Black, it all had to do with the richness of different languages. See her answer in the video above.

Black has served as a city ambassador of sorts, repping the 305 as one of Bravo's Real Housewives alongside Marysol Patton and Audriana de Moura.

Although the ladies are currently filming their second season, Black keeps her priorities in check. She's hosting the Black’s Annual Gala on Saturday night at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

Despite the gala being a star-studded affair, it benefits the Consequences Foundation, which provides educational resources to at-risk youth, Teach for America, and Miami-Dade Juvenile services.

This year, Grammy award winning artists Queen Latifah and Tony Bennet are scheduled to perform.
