Ray Cornelius with Project Runway All-Star Edmond Newton

Today's UPFRONT is going to be lit! It features Project Runway All-Star and Atlanta based fashion designer Edmond Newton. He stopped by the studios this week to discuss appearing on Season 6 of the show and his plans to release a book based on his experience. 

American Idol stars Julian and Milo Sposato were in town and stopped by to chat about appearing on the new season of the show.  The twins are also releasing a new album and share some of that music with us. The project is mixture of their musical loves --- Jazz, Pop, Soul and Rock. 

Literary icon Pearl Cleage is in the studio to discuss her two-one act plays that are showing now through April 15 at the Southwest Arts Center. Ms. Cleage also opens up about mounting a new production with the Alliance Theatre in 2019 and much more.
