This week’s UPFRONT featured the amazing talents of Sharaya J and Nic Starr.

Sharaya J is a hip-hop artist, dancer and screenwriter competing on the new season of The Four. The Atlanta based performer stopped by the studios this week to chat about appearing on the popular Fox series and being one of the coveted final four.

Nic Starr is currently appearing in Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square production of Fences. The show is running now through June 3. In addition to starring in the show, Starr is also directing. He also opens up about preparing for the role and the enduring legacy of August Wilson.

I also featured music from Sharaya J along with Dianne Reeves and Jazzmeia Horne. Both jazz vocalists will be appearing at this year’s Atlanta Jazz Festival, taking place Memorial Day Weekend at historic Piedmont Park.
