'UPFRONT' talks to Dionne Warwick, Jacob Latimore + Tracy McMillan

Dionne Warwick, Jacob Latimore and Tracy McMillan

Happy New Year Everyone!!! Check out my recent edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry featuring Tracy McMillan, host of OWN's Family or Fiance plus Like a Boss star and singer Jacob Latimore and music legend Dionne Warwick. 

Tracy McMillan stopped by to chat about the second season of OWN's hit relationship series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iEtJ3BTqu4">Family or Fiance. The popular journalist and screenwriter explains how her three failed marriages opened the door for her current career as a relationship expert. She also talks about her other TV projects including an HBO series about the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1980s and a reboot of the 80s film Flashdance

Triple threat performer Jacob Latimore talked to UPFRONT about his role in the new film Like a Boss. It features Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrnes as two best friends whose friendship is put to the tet after selling their makeup line to cosmetic titan Claire Luna, played by Selma Hayek.  Jacob also opens up about the new season of The Chi and much more. 

Closing out the show is my one-on-one conversation with Grammy winning music legend Dionne Warwick. She takes us down memory lane and tells the backstory to one of her biggest hits "That's What Friends Are For," her participation in "We Are the World" and connecting with Stevie Wonder for the Woman in Red soundtrack.
