Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside the Entertainment Industry. It features my salute to Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Donnie and his classic album, THE COLORED SECTION.

The 2002 Motown release recieved critical-acclaim and was applauded for its timely messages about race, gender, spirituality, black male sexuality and freedom. It was praised by such musical icons Prince and Stevie Wonder and gospel diva Kim Burrell and was even featured in the 2002 hip-hop romance "Brown Sugar".
