If there’s one thing we enjoy it’s a red carpet event highlighting the best of the best.
The second inaugural of the Black Music and Entertainment Walk of Fame took place last week and E-Line was live on the red carpet!
The new class of honorees was officially inducted during a formal ceremony. Held in partnership with Radio One, the event included a Celebration Brunch and program, hosted by Atlanta’s own Karyn Greer of CBS 46, along with radio personality Frank Ski immediately following the Ceremony.
