Jazz

Triple threat performer T.C. Carson is starring in Atlanta’s Horizon Theatre production of the musical, mystery romance “Blackberry Daze.” It's running now through August 27.

 

The season two opener of #UPFRONT airs tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. and features the cast of the documentary film "STEP" as well as the BronzeLens Film Festival.

"STEP" is a Sundance Film Festival winner that follows the lives of an all-female step team from the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women. These courageous girls are empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, as they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college. 

Iconic music producer and entertainment mogul—Quincy Jones—is teaming up with French television producer Reza Ackbaraly for the launch of the world’s first subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform celebrating all things jazz titled Qwest TV.

 

 

 

Today's edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry was full of Black star power.  I got a chance to talk to the ladies of "Girls Trip," which opens in theaters nationwide this weekend. Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall dish about their roles while the film's producer---Will Packer---weighs in on why this particular film is so important. Mayor Kasim Reed also talked about his desire for Atlanta to make this film #1 at the box office. 

Check out my exclusive interview with Grammy winning music legend---Miss Patti LaBelle! #UPFRONT caught up with the in demand singer to chat about her first jazz album, Bel Hommage.  She also talks about her song selection process and why she waited so long to release this project. Miss Patti also opens up about her new book, Desserts LaBelle Soulful Sweets to Sing About and tells a heart touching story about her Redemptive Red Velvet Cake.
