BounceTV has released a first look at the “26th Annual Trumpet Awards” and I can hardly contain my excitement. I had the honor of covering the red carpet this year along with CAU-TV 23 for a television special that will air before the show on February 11.
This year’s honorees include Jermaine Dupri, Cameo, Richelieu “Rich” Dennis, Tamika Mallory, Marley Dias, Dr. Lonnie Johnson and Rhyon Brown.
The show is hosted by Larenz Tate and Erica Ash and was attended by actress Ashley Love-Mills, “Saints and Sinners” stars Vanessa Bell Calloway, Donna Biscoe and Jasmine Burke, comedian Rodney Perry, HGTV star Egypt Sherrod, Judge Penny Reynolds, actress DeEtta West, hip hop icon Ed Lover, actor and singer T.C.
