#UPFRONT featuring Paula Champion + Hollywood's Black British Invasion

Sep 9, 2017

Check out today's edition of #UPFRONT! This week, I talked exclusively to gospel singer-songwriter Paula Champion about being trapped in a Houston hotel during Hurricane Harvey. The Atlanta-based vocalist opens up about her life changing experience and what she’s planning to do for some of the families affected. 

#UPFRONT also had a very lively discussion about Hollywood’s Black British Invasion and what this means for Black American actors. Dr. Eve Graves, Chair of CAU’s Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts, CAU Theatre Professor and actor Jonathan Kitts and British actor Zimzon Lelo joined me for the conversation. We also played new music from Gregory Porter’s Nat King Cole & Me plus throwback sounds from the late George Michael and more. 

#UPFRONT Inside Atlanta Entertainment Industry is a 30-minute radio magazine that features one-on-one interviews with all of the major players and behind-the-scenes superstars that make Georgia the new "Entertainment Capital.” It airs every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK and his hosted by yours truly, Ray Cornelius.
