Check out today's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features my one-on-one interviews with actress Chrystale Wilson, music mogul Dr. Mathew Knowles and the cast from Bounce TV's hit drama series Saints & Sinners

2018 marks the 20th Anniversary of the cult classic film, The Players Club and Wilson opens up about her role as 'Ronnie.' She also talks about her new TV projects including The Rich & the Ruthless and much more.

Music executive and star maker---Dr. Mathew Knowles---drops by to discuss his new book, Racism from the Eyes of a Child. The book was released this past February and is a personal reflection on racism in America from his perspective as youth growing up in rural Alabama. He also talks about the issue of colorism in the music industry and his chance encounter with the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

Bounce TV's hit dramatic series Saints & Sinners is back and UPFRONT caught up with a few of the show's stars. Clifton Powell, Jasmine Burke, Demetria McKinney and Tray Cheney all weight in on the series and what fans can expect this new season.

I'll also be playing songs that celebrate freedom, justice and equality as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
