This week’s UPFRONT featured the amazing talents of Sharaya J and Nic Starr. 

Sharaya J is a hip-hop artist, dancer and screenwriter competing on the new season of The Four. The Atlanta based performer stopped by the studios this week to chat about appearing on the popular Fox series and being one of the coveted final four. 

I can already tell by the YouTube comments that OWN’s new series Love Is ____. will be that show that everyone will be talking about this summer besides Queen Sugar and Insecure. If the acting and the obvious chemistry between the lead actors doesn’t pull you in, then maybe the soulful throwback sounds will. (Come through Nicci Gilbert and Brownstone).

OWN has dropped the official trailer for TV’s biggest phenomenon, QUEEN SUGAR and I am so ready for it. The one-hour dramatic series returns for a two night premiere – May 29 & 30 at 10 p.m. EST.

Join Dr. Courtney M. Shelton, MD, Saturday, May 19 at 8:30 AM for The CheckUp on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, as we bring you common sense health information to help you create happier, healthier lives for you and your family.  Dr. Shelton is joined by Dr. Karla Booker. They will discuss how women deal(or ignore) stress and are sometimes less likely to take care of themselves because they are often in the role of caregiver for others. The doctors will discuss facts you need to know about breast cancer, obesity, hypertension, heart disease, HPV, diabetes and mental illness, among other topics.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Wendy Ely Jackson and Maynard Jackson III about Auburn Avenue Films and the launch of their documentary MAYNARD. Maynard Jackson III explains that he woke up one day and thought about the story of his father. Noting his wife had over 25 years experience in the film industry, he realized that the story would be told via film.
