BET announces performers and presenters for the 2020 “SOUL TRAIN AWARDS” featuring an exciting lineup of some of the brightest stars in R&B, Gospel, Adult Urban Contemporary and soul.

Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry featuring singer-songwriter Lamont Dozier Jr., TV/film critic and author Ronda Penrice and motivational speaker, author and new thought leader Iyanla Vanzant. 

When it comes to enduring musical legacies, it’s always inspiring when the melodic, grooving evergreen apples drop so close to the tree. The son and namesake of legendary singer, songwriter and record producer Lamont Dozier – one third of the famed Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting and production team – Lamont Dozier, Jr. grew up a child of Motown, steeped in and influenced by gospel, jazz and old-school R&B and immersing in the magic and creative mentorship of the likes of Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross. 

 

Motown living legend William "Smokey" Robinson, Jr., will play Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre this Saturday, January 26 at 8 p.m. The iconic singer, songwriter and Grammy-Award winning entertainer will perform all of his hit songs including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “I Second That Emotion,” “The Tears Of a Clown," "Just to See Her," and "Cruisin."
