Check out this past weekend's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features my exclusive one-on-one interview with rapper, actor and activist David Banner. He is starring in a new film, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYaJZSCY_lA">Never Heard, which opens in theaters this weekend and features Robin Givens, Romeo Miller, Karrueche Tran and Kandi Burruss. Banner also opens up about his role on the Bounce TV series Saints & Sinners and much more. 

The show also features my red carpet interviews with OWN's Ready to Love host Nephew Tommy and the show's producer Will Packer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf7f6SiMlXI">Ready to Love explores the real-life dating interactions of sexy, successful and grown Black men and women in their 30s and 40s who are each looking for lasting love and an authentic relationship. It also highlight's the men's observations and experiences in the search for true love in Atlanta. 

UPFRONT also celebrates the 40th Anniversary of The Wiz with music from the film played all throughout the show.
