Host Deardra Shuler talks to Charles Bobbit, James Brown friend and manager. Bobbit will talk about his rags to riches story with Deardra. Bobbit also managed Michael Jackson and was the personal advisor to President Omar Bongo of Gabon. Born in 1930, in the back woods of North Carolina, Charles was whisked to Brooklyn, NY by his eldest sister after the loss of his mother to cancer. During his young adult years, he worked as a porter. He later worked for the New York City Transit Authority, laying rails at night. Later he deemed the entertainment industry was an escape from menial labor, although he could neither sing nor dance.
Mr. Bobbit’s first introduction to the realization of his dream was when he first saw Mr. James Brown, “The Godfather of Soul” perform at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY. He was awestruck and proclaimed to his wife that he would one day work as Brown’s Personal Manager. Although thwarted originally, by 1965, he won a job as James Brown's valet and later became Brown's friend and manager up to the day Brown died. The book, "Making it Happen," tells Brown and Bobbitt's story. It was Mr Bobbit who gave James Brown the title, “Godfather of Soul.” Bobbit was instrumental in the arrangement of “Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.” and the musical scores for the movie, “Black Caesar,” starring Fred Williamson. Bobbit met President Omar Bongo of Gabon and worked with Bongo's son cutting a few albums. The family hired Bobbit as their advisor taking Bobbit to heights that he couldn’t even imagine. He later worked with Michael Jackson becoming his friend and confidante.
International star Johnny Mathis, who has given few interviews in the past, has agreed to talk with Host Deardra Shuler about his upcoming May 21, 8pm performance at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in the Bronx. Mr. Mathis is expected to sing songs like "Misty," "Chances Are," "It's Not For Me to Say," and a mix of jazz and classic standards. Born in Gilmer, Texas, Mathis grew up in San Francisco. Prior to his singing fame, he excelled in basketball, high jumping, hurdling, and track and field and was offered a chance to compete at the Olympic Games. Unfortunately, he was offered a record contract at the same time. Johnny's father felt his son should consider a future in music. Thus, he did not compete in the Olympics as planned. Mr. Mathis holds his own star in the Walk of Fame and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame twice. He has sold millions of records and is only one of 5 recording artists to have Top 40 hits spanning each of the four decades since 1955. Mathis is an avid golfer. He hosted his own golf tournament, The Johnny Mathis Senior PGA Classics held in L.A. He also hosted The Shell/Johnny Mathis Golf Classic, a charity golf tournament in Belfast, in Northern Ireland. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Mr. Mathis has sold over 350 Million records worldwide.

Prior to his passing, Deardra Shuler spoke with the famed Oscar Brown, Jr., an American singer, songwriter, playwright, poet, political aspirant and civil rights activist. He unsuccessfully ran for office in the Illinois State Legislature and U.S. Congress. A Chicago native, while in life, Oscar Brown, Jr., began his singing debut on the radio show, Secret City at age fifteen. His first major recorded work was in collaboration with Max Roach, “We Insist! Freedom Now.” Oscar composed songs like Bid “Em In,” “Work Song,” “Dat There,” “Sin and Soul,” Signifying Monkey, “Watermelon Man,” “The Snake,” and “Afro Blue.” A prolific writer and playwright, Brown wrote and produced “Sin and Soul” and “Big Time Buck White” which starred Muhammad Ali. He founded The Oscar Brown, Jr. H.I.P. Legacy Foundation to carry on his work. A bit of a maverick and a definite innovator, Brown appeared on the Today Show with host Dave Garroway. The first and last time an entire Broadway show was featured on the Today Show. Brown wrote at least 1,000 songs (only 125 have been published), twelve albums, and over a dozen musical plays. His paperback book: WHAT IT IS—POEMS AND OPINIONS OF OSCAR BROWN JR., includes lyrics to some of his better-known songs as well as lyrics to songs Brown never got to record. A man for the history books, Deardra wanted to revisit her show with Oscar Brown Jr., so that audiences around the world can keep those who have forged a world of beauty, art and individualism alive in our memory and heart.
Host Deardra Shuler talks with Henry Simmons who is appearing in the movie FROM THE ROUGH starring academy award nominee Taraji Henson and Michael Clark Duncan. From the Rough opens in theaters on Friday, April 25, and tells the true story of Catana Starks, a female Tennessee State men’s golf coach who overcame incredible odds and deep-seated prejudice to become “the first African-American woman ever to coach an all-men’s team.
Born in Stamford, Ct, the son of Aurelia and Henry Simmons, Sr. Henry is one of three children. Simmons earned a basketball scholarship to Franklin Pierce College in New Hampshire. He earned a business degree and later took a job in finacial management. It didn't last because Simmons was attracted to acting.
Simmons' first acting gig as a hot-headed youth was in a movie with Tupac Shakur called "Above the Rim." He appeared in movies and TV, most notably Detective Baldwin Jones on the ABC police drama “NYPD Blue.” He also played Queen Latifah's boyfriend in the 2004 action/comedy film Taxi. He had a leading role in a CBS legal drama "Shark" which starred James Woods. Simmons also appeared in World's Greatest Dad. He recently starred in "Man Up!" Upcoming projects include From the Rough" and "No Good Deed," starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson.
Simmons stars in "From the Rough" as Kendrick Paulsen, Jr., the school’s tough-minded athletic director, who “represents the ultimate obstacle to (Henson’s) character and her success because he does not think Starks is qualified to coach a men’s team and that creates a huge conflict.
