YOU’VE ASKED FOR IT AND IT’S FINALLY HERE!

I am super excited to share with all of you my very first #UPFRONT #YOUTUBE interview. It features triple threat performer Crystal Fox aka Hanna from “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.” The native Atlantan stopped by the #UPFRONT studios this week to talk about the popular series and what it’s really like working with Mr. Perry and Oprah Winfrey.  

 

 

Relax, Relate, Release … this Friday evening at "Jazz Matters at the Wren's Nest." This jazz experience takes place every third Friday at 8 p.m. in Atlanta’s Historic West End district and features some of the city's top jazz, blues and soul music artists.

Each month, "Jazz Matters at the Wren's Nest" will feature a different style of jazz and the genres influenced by it such as Afro-Cuban & Latin, Big Band, Blues, Contemporary, Traditional, Smooth, R&B, Soul, and more. Bring your family, friends, coworkers and come equipped with blankets, food and chairs.
