Check out this weekend's edition of UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

In our first segment, we’re chatting with sought after writer and director Cas Sigers-Beedles. She is here to talk about her upcoming film “Unthinkably Good Things,” which premieres this weekend on all Hallmark platforms. The project is the first film under Hallmark’s iconic Mahogany label and follows the lives of three girlfriends who are at a crossroads in their lives and careers.

And in the second half of the show, we’re catching up with Tony Award-winning Broadway icon Melba Moore. The Grammy nominated songstress is receiving the Joseph R. Biden Lifetime Achievement Award as well as the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for her commitment to the improvement of urban communities. Ms. Moore is here to talk about this momentous occasion and recalls other definitive moments throughout her illustrious career.

UFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is produced and hosted by Ray Cornelius for Jazz WCLK 91.9 and is recorded from the campus of Clark Atlanta University. It is also brought to you by the High Museum of Art and the Bob Thompson Exhibition.
