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 WCLK's Jamal Ahmad for Friday Jazz at the High on May 18 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday Jazz at the High offers a great line up of Jazz styles, from straight ahead to free Jazz, Bebop to Swing and more. While listening to the music, patrons can also check out the High Museum of Art's permanent and featured collections. 

From legendary playwright August Wilson, the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won him critical acclaim, including the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize.
