Check out this past weekend’s edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta’s Entertainment Industry. It features attorneys Merissa Grayson and Demetria Graves of The Elite Firm. It is the first-female led full service law and crisis management firm with a unique focus on African-American entertainers, professional athletes and high profile influencers. The ladies open up about the misuse of social media and weigh in on such hot topics as the #MeToo Movement and Equal Pay in Hollywood.

The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre is coming to Atlanta’s Fabulous Fox next month and principal dancer Michael Jackson gives us a preview of what fans can expect. He also talks about appearing on this season’s official Ailey poster (featured picture above) and much more.

UPFRONT teamed up with CAU-TV recently for the “26th Annual Bounce Trumpet Awards.” Yours truly was on the red carpet and got a chance to chat with this year’s honorees and Trumpet Awards creator Ms. Xernona Clayton. I also played music from Grammy winners Cecile McLorin Salvant, Christian McBride and more.
