The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs announced today that the 43rd annual Atlanta Jazz Festival will not take place this year. The decision to cancel one of the country’s longest-running, free jazz festivals was based on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the City of Atlanta, and the CDC and Georgia State guidelines limiting gatherings to 10 or less individuals.
​​​“While there will not be a festival this year, we were happy to be able to share 31 days of unique jazz performances by Atlanta artists throughout May, and will work to reschedule the Atlanta Jazz Festival for a future date that will ensure festival goers’ well-being and safety,” said Camille Russell Love, executive director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
The Atlanta Jazz Festival would like to thank the Atlanta Music ProjectWJZA and PNC Bank for their support. Check the AJF website at www.atlantafestivals.com for information about the 2021 event.

TOWANDA BRAXTON LAUNCHES AGE-DEFYING SKIN CARE LINE "LADYBUG SKINCARE" - AVAILABLE NOW!

Towanda Braxton is finally letting fans know her secret to her flawless skin. Known as the "Responsible One" of the Braxtons, Towanda has deemed it as her responsibility to help others combat wrinkles, acne, dull skin, and other skin impurities with her new cosmetic line, "Ladybug Skincare."
Towanda has always had a keen interest in the beauty and skincare industry since she was a child, but after meeting the “Skin God” Charlotte Wilson of Glow Skin Enhancement, she took actions into her own hands. Towanda decided to take her acquired knowledge and create her very own skincare line called “Ladybug Skincare” backed by Charlotte Wilson. The products are created for all skin types, and gives the user a young, natural, and refreshing glow. Her mission is to educate others on how to keep their skin looking and feeling healthy, one step at a time. With that, she plans on spreading her knowledge across the world, and become a Go-To for all things skin care. The affordable line features A Bar Day & Night Soap, Timeless Ageless Morning Toner, Timeless Ageless Day Moisturizer, Timeless Ageless Night Lotion, Anti Aging Serum, and Glow Sunscreen.

Towanda Braxton is known to the world as an internationally acclaimed singer, actress, entrepreneur, and executive television producer. Best known for her current role as the star of WEtv’s hit series, Braxton Family Values. The dynamic creative transitioned to acting, after auditioning and being accepted to the distinguished Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Towanda had her acting premier in Misguided Behavior, directed by and starring Carl Payne.

"After you turn 40, your skin changes a bit and the products you used in your twenties don’t work anymore. Partnering with Charlotte Wilson was important to me because Age is timeless, and I want to help women reflect that in their skin," Towanda says in an exclusive Rolling Out interview.

Lady Skincare can be purchased exclusively on ladybugskincare.com.
