Check out pics & special footage from the big event below.


Last night some of music’s biggest stars came out in Las Vegas for the 2018 Soul Train Awards. This year’s show hosted by superstar actresses Tichina Arnold & Tisha Campbell-Martin is just about to kick off as they honor some of today’s finest in music. Two of our favorite Grammy Award winning Powerhouses will walk away with special honors as Erykah Badu will receive the legend award , while Faith Evans will receive the lady of soul award.

Now it’s been a minute , 3 years to be exact but RnB Spotlight is back and from the looks of it it’s just getting bigger and better. Last night Music Manager & TV producer Cory Taylor brought back his popular showcase to the legendary SOB’s but this time with some special guest. Grammy award winning R&B legend Faith Evans and media mogul Datwon Thomas ( VIBE , BIllboard , KING ) has joined forces with Cory for a special project with some of today’s finest rising stars and trust me they definitely have one hell of task at hand. Over the past few months the 3 put together a nationwide talent search via Instagram to find some incredible talent for a special music project. Now of course the submissions were overwhelming but some of the finalist for their project made their way to the big stage for what was sure to be one hell of a show.

Indie artist Mag Elliott , Jay Marie , Jerzey Shawn , Quiona & Timothy McClure all hit the stage to perform classic covers of songs which definitely kept the crowd wanting more but there were a few stand outs that completely won us over. Soulful crooner Damon Parker took over the stage with a powerful cover of Brian McKnight’s “ Never Felt This Way “ which left everyone wondering where the hell this Virginia native has been hiding his gift that is truly needed today in R&B. One song wasn’t enough from this man and it was clear that if this was any indication of what he could bring to music , then he is definitely on his way. Powerhouse songstress Sharron Sings took control of the stage with a sultry performance of Avery Sunshine’s “ Call My Name “ but with a special twist she made that song all her own by adding a medley of Destiny’s Child classic hits “Say My Name” & “No No No” .

So what makes NYC so special is that you just never know what can happen on the spot and in this case thats what led the crowd to being introduced to a new sultry group Volume 4. The ladies who were just in attendance was given a shot to hit the stage and to our pleasant surprise , they hit us with a special Acapella medley of classic 90’s hits which definitely gave us that feel of girl groups we desperately have been missing today in music. But up next was rising star Steve Lovell who stole the show with his rendition of Floetry’s “ Say Yes “. Now it should come as no surprise that New Jersey is filled with incredible talent , I mean let’s not forget where the VOICE Whitney Houston comes from as well as the r&b diva Faith Evans herself. So it makes sense why Steve was their pick for this showcase but that man sang that song like I have never heard it before and honestly I’m not sure if I ever want to hear anyone else touch it besides him. He clearly was the highlight of the nites showcase but with acts like this , it’s clear to see that this special project is about to be something we all have been missing. Now if that wasn’t enough the legend herself Faith Evans hit the stage to perform her classic hit “ Love Like This “ with some special help from this special lineup of talent which has surely made their mark on the crowd tonite. Last night proved that Cory Taylor’s mission to keep real RnB alive has not gone in vain and with Faith & Datwon on his team , the best is yet to come. If you didn’t have the chance to come out , check out some of our exclusive footage from the special night below.


This past weekend some of Hollywood’s finest took over The AMC Empire 25 movie theater in NYC for the 2018 UrbanWorld Film Festival. Press , filmmakers & some lucky fans came out daily to attend special screenings of highly anticipated films , tv shows , panels & more exclusively before they are released to the general public. Thursday “PIMP” which stars KeKe Palmer was just the beginning of incredible films to be screening for the festival and trust me this movie was a must see. The Lee Daniels produced film took home the Audience Award for Best feature film due to the powerful performances from KeKe & Aunjanue L. Ellis. Friday’s Spotlight feature was “Widows” and it was clear that UrbanWorld knew exactly what the audience needed to see. The explosive film which stars Viola Davis , Liam Neeson , Michelle Rodriguez , Cynthia Erivio , Daniel Kaluuya , Colin Farrell & Elizabeth Debicki had the audience on their edge of their seat one minute , then screaming or gasping next at the action packed film which is sure to take over the Box Office when it’s hits theaters in Novemeber.

Now if that wasn’t enough , Saturday was jam packed with so much black star power in the building for the festivals closing night. Comedic superstar Lil Rel Howrey stopped by the festival to preview a new episode of his upcoming FOX series “REL”.
Superstar actress Tasha Smith was joined by legendary actress Telma Hopkins and other cast members to premiere their upcoming BET film “Running Out Of Time”. The special screening ended with the cast sitting down for a Q&A as they dropped gems on the crowd of aspiring actors , directors & more who clearly loved every minute of the action packed thriller. To close out this year’s festival , the spotlight feature was the highly anticipated 20th Century Fox Film “The Hate U Give”. Two of the film’s stars Amandla Stenberg & Algee Smith were in attendance along with the film’s director George Tillman to premiere the emotional film which left everyone speechless. Notable stars also in attendance to see the must see movie of the year included Boris Kodjoe , Niecey Nash , Joe Morton , Simone Missick and Omar Dorsey. The movie which hit home for the audience due to the film’s portrayal of a girl and her family dealing with the aftermath of another innocent black man being killed by Police Brutality , was just the film we needed to see to keep the conversation going that Black Lives Matter.

The movie which sent us on an emotional roller coaster was beautifully done so it was only right that we all stood up to give their brilliant work of Art a standing ovation. Oscar nominated director Ava Duvernay joined the cast and director for a special Q&A to talk about the powerful film which were sure will be the movie of the year. Amandla Stenberg’s brilliant portrayal of “Starr” will definitely be praised by the masses and every award she receives is well deserved. This year’s film festival once again proved that African Americans and other minority’s are just as powerful on the screen and behind the lenses and one things for sure , I will always support this festival whenever i can because it shows us that our work is just as important , powerful and brilliant when given the right representation. Hopefully you were there this year , but if you weren’t check out exclusive footage from this year’s festival below.
