    Joy Keys chats with Musician Toshi Reagon

    in Current Events

    Special Guest: Toshi Reagon has been described as “a talented, versatile singer, songwriter and musician with a profound ear for sonic Americana—from folk to funk, from blues to rock” by critic/blogger Eva Yaa Asantewaa (InfiniteBody). “She masters each of these genres with vocal strategies that easily spiral and swoop from the expressively sinuous to the hard-charging, a combination of warmth and mischief.”

    While her expansive career has landed her comfortably in residence at Carnegie Hall, the Paris Opera House and Madison Square Garden, you can just as easily find Toshi turning out a music festival, intimate venue or local club. Toshi finds home on any musical stage. Toshi has had the pleasure of working with Lenny Kravitz, Lizz Wright, Ani DiFranco, Carl Hancock Rux, Nona Hendryx, Pete Seeger, Chocolate Genius and many other amazing artists, including her favorite collaborator, her mom, Bernice Johnson Reagon.

    Toshi has been the recipient of a NYFA award for Music Composition, The Black Lily Music and Film Festival Award for Outstanding Performance. She is a National Women’s History Month Honoree, and is the 2010 recipient of OutMusic’s Heritage Award. www.toshireagon.com

    Joy Keys chats with Actor JR Lemon from NBC's The Night Shift

    in Entertainment

    JR Lemon was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. A Stanford University graduate with a BS degree in Management Science and Engineering, JR was signed as a running back to the Oakland Raiders subsequent to finishing school.  After being released from the Raiders, JR relocated to southern California with the intention of continuing his football training.  Little did he know at the time, but the move would expose JR to possibilities of a life he had never imagined in the entertainment industry.

    While appearing in numerous national commercial and print campaigns JR honed his craft with the intention of pursuing an acting career.  The hard work paid off when he booked a series regular role in NBC’s medical drama The Night Shift, which was recently renewed for a third season. He recently also made his big screen debut as one of the male leads in Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas – the next installment in Lionsgate’s successful franchise.

    In order to satisfy his football interest, JR still performs much of the Motion Capture for Electronics Artists on their extremely popular football video game, Madden.

    Joy Keys chats with Actress Margaret Avery from Being Mary Jane about Lupus

    in Current Events

    Special Guest:  Margaret Avery moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career in 1968. In 1973 her Los Angeles Drama Circle Award-winning performance in the play “Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?” caught the attention of Clint Eastwood and he quickly cast her in his film “Magnum Force”, serving as an entree for guest starring roles in numerous episodic T.V. shows and Blaxploitation films including “Scott Joplin”, “The Lathe of Heaven”, “The Return of Superfly” and “Heatwave”. She eventually got cast in her most widely recognized Academy-Award nominated role as Shug Avery in Steven Spielberg’s “The Color Purple”.

    She is a new public advocate for continued Lupus research and education through the Lupus Foundation of America; a cause preempted by personally knowing individuals living with Lupus as well as playing a character who suffers from the disease on BET's Being Mary Jane. http://www.margaretaveryonline.com

  • REVEAL YOUR EXCELLENCE w/ The On-Camera Coach! Renai Ellison

    in Self Help

    Renai chats with Certified Life Coach and ELI Master Practitioner Nancy Solomon Gross about her unique niche of COACHING THE MALE CLIENT.


    I launched my career in television after a summer internship with KYW-TV in Philadelphia and have hosted television programs on HGTV, PBS, and QVC. Currently, I am a certified personal development coach (CPC) and Energy Leadership Master Practitioner (ELI-MP). My coaching practice was born in 2007 and has been redefined as a result of the incredible training I received from the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). My coaching practice focuses on helping you to access higher levels of energy so that you can create the life you desire. I tap into the power of the media to connect with people and help them unlock their true potential.



    I grew up in Scarsdale, New York and am the youngest of three children. I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a BS degree. For 20 years I have worked as a salesperson at brand agencies. I have a husband and two daughters, a step son and a dog. They all bring me much joy and support in all things. I realized that much of my inspiration for coaching comes from being a wife, mother and friend, and my professional experience guiding others to new opportunities in business. I have a deep desire to guide men to  a life of self empowerment, interest, and meaning.
