Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features attorneys Merissa Grayson and Demetria Graves of the Elite Firm. It is the first-female led full service law and crisis management firm with a unique focus on African-American entertainers, professional athletes and high profile influencers. The ladies open up about the misuse of social media and weigh in on such hot topics as the #MeToo Movement and Equal Pay in Hollywood. 

The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre is coming to the Fabulous Fox next month and principal dancer Michael Jackson gives us a preview of what fans can expect. He also talks about appearing on this season's official Ailey poster and much more. 

UPFRONT teamed up with CAU-TV this past weekend for the 26th Annual Bounce Trumpet Awards. Yours truly was on the red carpet and got a chance to chat with this year's honorees and Trumpet Awards creator Ms. Xernona Clayton. You'll also hear music from Grammy nominees - Cecile McLorin Salvant, Raul Midon and Christian McBride.
