Jazz Vocalist, Keyboardist and Composer Carol Albert grew up in Hiram, Georgia in nearby Paulding County. She has been making music in Atlanta, around the country and in Europe for a while. In Atlanta she has played as an accompanyist for the Atlanta Ballet, among others.

On her new release Fly Away Butterfly on the Cahara label, Albert interprets influences as diverse as Al Jarreau and Gilberto/Getz.  You can hear the title cut Fly Away Butterfly on Jazz 91.9 WCLK at various times, including during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Veteran screen actors Morgan Freeman, Sheryl Lee Ralph and George Wallace are starring in a new comedy for Broad Green Pictures titled, “Just Getting Started.” It debuts in theaters December 8, 2017.

 

CONGRATS to music diva—DIANA ROSS! The Motown legend and Grammy-award winning singer, actress, fashion icon and philanthropist will receive this year’s coveted “American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement.”

 

Miss Ross will be recognized for her five-decades of outstanding artistic contributions to the entertainment industry and popular culture.  She attended the very first show in 1974 and has since gone on to win seven awards of her own and even served as host in 1986 and 1987.

 

Check out the exciting new trailer for Tyler Perry‘s dramatic thriller “Acrimony” starring “Empire” actress Taraji P. Henson. It arrives in theaters on March 30, 2018.

 

In “Acrimony,” Henson stars as a faithful wife who is tired of standing by her devious husband (Lyriq Bent, “She’s Gotta Have it”) and is enraged when it becomes clear she has been betrayed. The movie’s name was changed to  “She’s Living My Life” a few months ago but is now back to its original title.

Don't forget to tune into today's show! This week's guests include original “Dreamgirl” Sheryl Lee Ralph, who is here to talk about her role on the Amazon series, “One Mississippi” as well as her two other film projects. She also opens up about why she continues to advocate for HIV-AIDS awareness and prevention.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Clark Atlanta University alumna Nnegest Likké, an award winning film director, screenwriter and producer.

I ask Nnegest about her start and her first movie. She speaks about doing work in "the laboratory" explaining that there is no easy way to build your expertise.  She read every book that had been written about making movies. She talks about the screenplays she wrote that were bad, but she kept reading and writing until she thought she had something.

This month is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and I speak with Myrna Clayton about a non-profit organization called Abel 2 that will host a Career Day for the differently-abled on Saturday, October 28th at 8AM at the Graves Elementary School in Norcross.  People with different disabilities will share information about their careers. 

The CheckUp with Dr. Courtney Shelton, MD returns Saturday morning at 7:30am with a compelling discussion about a topic that affects many but doesn't get talked about much--female incontinence. Dr. Shelton is joined by Dr. Gina Northington, MD. Dr. Northington is board certified in reconstructive surgery and obstetrics and gynocology, and is a gynocologic urologist specializing in women's pelvic floor issues. There are different kinds of female incontinence and different treatments and approaches.

Blake Vision Entertainment brings In All My Haze, an inspiring musical tribute to Ms. Billie Holiday on Sunday, October 22 at the historic Earl Strand Theater on the Marietta Square.
