#UPFRONT with Chilli + Lisa Fischer + 'Making Africa: A Continent of Contemporary Design'

Check out this week’s edition of #UPFRONT! My special guests include singer Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas from the Grammy-award winning girl group TLC. She'll be discussing her cameo as Zora Neale Hurston in “Marshall.” The film opens nationwide in theaters this weekend.

The High Museum of Art has a new exhibition debuting today titled, #MAKINGAFRICA. I caught up with the show’s curators Carol Thompson and Amelie Klein to discuss what viewers can expect from the show and more.

Closing out #UPFRONT is Grammy winning vocalist Lisa Fischer. She’ll be appearing at the Rialto Center later on this month and I chat with her about being one of the music industry’s top background singers and more.  We also feature music from Fischer as well as TLC and Christian McBride.
