Watch #UPFRONT Interview with actress Crystal Fox (VIDEO)



I am super excited to share with all of you my very first #UPFRONT #YOUTUBE interview. It features triple threat performer Crystal Fox aka Hanna from “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.” The native Atlantan stopped by the #UPFRONT studios this week to talk about the popular series and what it’s really like working with Mr. Perry and Oprah Winfrey.

She also opens up about her FREE community event #DanceForDiversity that is taking place next Saturday, June 24 at Atlanta’s historic Adair Park II. Finally, she shares a very special #BlackMusicMonth moment about her legendary aunt, Nina Simone. If you enjoy listening to #UPFRONT on the radio, then you’ll love this #unedited video of yours truly talking to Ms. Fox!


A BIG THANK YOU to the crew at CAU-TV for collaborating with me on this video as well as my engineer Mark Angel for providing me with some dope music. There will definitely be a lot more videos of my #UPFRONT interviews in the future.
