'UPFRONT' presents 'The Show Must Go On: Entertainment and COVID-19' (VIDEO)
WCLK's UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry presents a new weekly segment addressing the arts and entertainment community's response to the Corona Virus.
The Show Must Go On: Entertainment and COVID-19 features one-on-one conversations with actors, singers, dancers, artists, performers, directors, producers and industry insiders who have been impacted by COVID-19 and social distancing. Broadway has been shut down for two month, music festivals like Glastonbury and Coachella have either been postponed or cancelled and a good number creatives from all sectors are out of work.
What will concerts look like in the future? How do we protect our performers on stage? How will movies and television shows get produced during the pandemic? The Show Must Go On...will help answer some of these questions and shed some light on how audiences will enjoy these various platforms in the future.
Check out parts one and two from last week's debut segment featuring Atlanta music stars Keisha Jackson (daughter of R&B legend Millie Jackson), Algebra, Anthony David and drummer extraordinaire Lil John Roberts. They open up about surviving, creating and thriving through the #CoronaStorm.
