"UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry"

Mark Angel

Just in case you missed it, here is this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It featured “If Loving You is Wrong” stars Joel Rush and April Parker Jones. They were both on to chat about the new season, their newest TV/film projects and much more. Veteran R&B vocalist and actor Marques Houston discussed his new film, “Til Death Do Us Part” which puts a spotlight on domestic violence. Stage actors D. Woods and Rob Demery of the Kenny Leon's musical “Holler If Ya Hear Me,” stopped by to talk about the lyrical genius of Tupac Shakur and his enduring legacy.

I am super excited to announce that I will be teaming up with the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State for a post screening discussion of the Oscar-winning film, “20 Feet from Stardom.” The event will take place at the Rialto on Wednesday, October 11 at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.

 

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. 

Don't forget to check out today's edition of #UPFRONT. It features interviews with legendary actor and filmmaker Bill Duke; emerging Atlanta filmmaker Bobby Huntley and veteran actor John Marshall Jones. All three of them have film projects debuting during this weekend's BronzeLens Film Festival. In addition to talking about their films, they also share words of wisdom for aspiring actors and filmmakers.
