UPFRONT feat. Chandra Currelley + SMGO w/Keisha Jackson, Algebra, Anthony David + Lil John Roberts

Chandra Currelley and the cast of 'BRUH'

Check out this weekend's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features interviews with singer and actress Chandra Currelley plus music stars Keisha Jackson, Algebra, Anthony David, and Lil John Roberts weigh in on COVID-19 and its impact on the music industry. 

Accomplished singer, songwriter and actress Chandra Currelley is back on the new BET+ series BRUH. The Tyler Perry comedy examines the world of dating, career and friendship in a present-day society for a group of 30-something-year-old college friends. This group of "Bruhs" will unravel the stereotypes of African American men and manage to maintain their brother-like relationships, while finding love and fulfilling careers. Chandra opens up about her role and her working relationship with Mr. Perry. I also surprise her with an appearance from her industry friends T.C. Carson and Thomas W. Jones III. BRUH is available now on the BET+ platform.

The Atlanta-based musicians open up about how the Corona Virus has impacted the music industry and independent artists. We also explore what concerts and music festivals may look like in the future and more.
