Last night, I attended the Atlanta advanced screening of HBO’s BESSIE starring Queen Latifah!! This fabulous red carpet event was held at the Rialto Center for the Arts and I must say… the movie was SOOO good. It’s the story of blues singer Bessie Smith, who rose to fame during the 1920s and ’30s.
It’s always a good day when I can sit and enjoy the event. The HBO team provided lots of FREE popcorn, snacks and I loaded up on “left over” candy for the boys 🙂
Of course I can’t tell you about the movie but stayed tuned! Being a singer myself… I was intrigued by this blues legend and did a little research on my own. Can’t wait to share but in the meantime… take a look at the red carpet pics including cast members Tory Kittles (Clarence), Kamryn Johnson (Young Bessie), Bryan Greenburg (John Hammond), Jasmine Guy, Terrance Carson, Jasmine Burke and the Bessie band!
The movie will premiere on HBO May 16th at 8 PM! Watch the clip:
