UPFRONT featuring Nicci Gilbert, Tina Lifford, Lady Alma and more (AUDIO)

Ray Cornelius with Nicci Gilbert

Check out today's Labor Day Weekend edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features my interviews from the BronzeLens Film Festival's Women Superstars Luncheon.

Acclaimed director Twinkie Byrd discusses her new film, Counter1960.  Filmmakers Muta Ali and Lisa Arrindell explain their new passion project Turtle-vs-Octopuss and Queen Sugar star Tina Lifford opens up about playing "Aunt Vi" and more. 

UPFRONT also talks to Philadelphia soul music diva Lady Alma about her return to music and Brownstone singer turned producer and filmmaker Nicci Gilbert is discussing her indie project Social Conflict. I also play music from Lady Alma and the King of Pop - Michael Jackson, who would have turned 60-years-old this week. 

Ray Cornelius is one of Atlanta’s newest entertainment writers and media personalities. His arts and entertainment website, www.raycornelius.com spotlights the latest in “positive” African-American celebrity news and was established in 2012. Since that time Cornelius has covered a myriad of red carpet premieres, award shows and Atlanta-based films including Tyler Perry’s Temptation, The BronzeLens Film Festival, The Trumpet Awards, and The Steve Harvey’s Neighborhood Awards just to name a few. He has also interviewed a who’s who list of today’s top singers, actors and reality stars. With nearly 20 years of media experience, Cornelius has also worked as an associate producer for the Emmy-winning public affairs program, ATL Insider and with such award shows as The Soul Train Awards, The Trumpet Awards and BET Hip-Hop Awards.
