This weekend’s edition of UPFRONT was fiyah! Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter LaTavia Roberson and PR Maven Jess Manning were in the studio to chat about Beyoncé’s historic Coachella performance and the 20th Anniversary of Destiny’s Child. 

Entertainment reporter Jewel Wicker and hip hop artist Renegade El Rey stopped by to discuss Kendrick Lamar winning the Pulitzer Prize for Music. They also talked about Atlanta’s changing music scene and more. 

TV One’s new crime and justice series Evidence of Innocence is finally premiering on Monday, June 4 and I re-aired my UPFRONT interview with the show’s executive producer Rushion McDonald.
