Today's UPFRONT show was fit for a Queen! It features a salute to the late Aretha Franklin, who died this week at the age of 76. Singers Avery*Sunshine, Keisha Jackson, Trina Broussard and WCLK's own RivaBlue talk 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 Minding Your Business with Mahisha.

This weekend’s edition of UPFRONT features my exclusive interviews with the cast of Crazy Rich Asians - Awkwafina, Ronny Chieng and Nico Santos. It’s the first US film in 25 years to feature an all-Asian cast and director. 

Acclaimed stage actress Dr. Yvonne Miranda Singh stops by to chat about her role in Horizon Theatre’s How Black Mothers Say I Love You. The show was written by Trey Anthony and is directed by the one and only Thomas W. Jones II. It’s playing now through August 26. 

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I will be moderating this year’s Sunday Brunch with the Brothers at the 2018 BronzeLens Film Festival.  It takes place Sunday, August 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
