This past weekend’s UPFRONT show was fit for a Queen! It featured a salute to the late Aretha Franklin, who died last week at the age of 76. Singers Avery*Sunshine, Keisha Jackson, Trina Broussard and WCLK 91.9’s RivaBlue talked about the impact of Franklin’s music and her enduring legacy.

I also have one-on-one interviews with Mile 22 star and Atlanta-based actor Keith Arthur Bolden and Mahisha Dellinger, the star of OWN’s new series Mind Your Business with Mahisha.

The show also features classics from the “Queen of Soul” including her hit songs “RESPECT,” “Natural Woman” and the theme song to the iconic TV series –  A Different World.

UPFRONT airs every Saturday at 9 a.m. on Atlanta’s own Jazz 91.9 WCLK and WCLK.com
