That Grape Juice Interviews Yolanda Adams

 That Grape Juice Interviews Yolanda Adams

In case you thought being one of the best-selling gospel artists in history was enough for Yolanda Adams, you thought wrong.

Aside from listing multiple chart toppers on Billboard tallies over the past two decades, the Grammy winning diva has also brought her megawatt talents and smile to a number of projects including film, television, radio, and most recently, her own bath and body line ‘Simply Yolanda’.

With the venture being one of many keeping her ever busy, Adams took time to chat exclusively to That Grape Juice about it, her love life, new music in the works with legendary production duo Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson) and hit songwriter Diane Warren, her love of gospel newcomers Joshua Rogers, Livre, and so much more.

What are you waiting for? Tuck in below to see it all:

That Grape Juice Interviews Actor Christian Keyes

f3b8a7ed8c1d51672366736e922d76c0 That Grape Juice Interviews Actor Christian Keyes

Christian Keyes is indeed a man of many hats.

Actor (stage, television, and movies), singer, model, producer, and writer are just a few of the titles that occupy space on his resume. Probably most remembered from his roles Tyler Perry’s hotly selling stage productions “What’s Done In The Dark” and “Madea Goes To Jail”, the Detroit born heartthrob has most recently thrilled audiences as ‘Troy’ aboard the hit BET sitcom ‘Let’s Stay Together’.

That Grape Juice recently caught up with Keyes to discuss his time on the show, music career, and clear up rumors that he will be starring in a ‘Magic Mike’ remake with an all African American cast.

Ladies, you definitely won’t want to miss this.

That Grape Juice TV Interviews Kym Whitley

TGJ:  4) What’s been your favorite role so far?

Kym:  My favorite role to this day was on the ‘Wayans Bros‘. We did an episode called ‘Misery’. I got the chance to play a woman who kidnapped Marlon [Wayans]. I got to be so silly and ignorant!  So, I think that’s definitely it!

TGJ:  5) After years of film and television under your belt, what’s left for you to do? What’s your dream role?

Kym:  Probably more behind the camera. I’d love to do more production and directing.  My dream role would be to play a civil rights leader or something historic. No matter the time period, I am fascinated by African American history.

TGJ:  Wow! That was really unexpected!  So, bringing this all home, give us one reason why we should watch Raising Whitley?

Kym:  Two L’s – to laugh and learn!  Also, to be inspired!

That Grape Juice Interviews Fantasia

fantasia 20131 That Grape Juice Interviews Fantasia

‘When I See You’ songstress Fantasia has seen herself aboard a media rollercoaster since the turn of the decade.

Indeed, kicking it off with her Grammy-award winning, 2010 top-seller ‘Back To Me’, the singer shortly thereafter found herself back atop headlines for a spectrum of a reasons – many of which, she tells That Grape Juice, nearly led her to walk away from the very platform that brought her fame.

Now, as her fourth album ‘Side Effects of You’ hit shelves today, Tasia talks exclusively about why it is her most personal to date (addressing those issues “head-on”), the future of her once-scheduled Mahalia Jackson biopic,  and so much more.

It all awaits below…

That Grape Juice Interviews Fred Hammond

S HAMMOND 0035 That Grape Juice Interviews Fred Hammond

Award winning gospel singer Fred Hammond‘s career has seen few rivals.  Indeed, be it rocking charts with legendary gospel group Commissioned, choir Radical for Christ, or even by his lonesome, the hitmaker has watched the likes of hits ‘Glory To Glory’, ‘No Weapon’, ‘Jesus Be a Fence’, and many more skyrocket to the top of many-a-gospel tally.

Now penning a new chapter in his already storied career, the Grammy winner has called on fellow prized crooners Brian Courtney Wilson, Dave Hollister, and Eric Roberson to fill out a new collective christened ‘United Tenors’.

Recently seeing their first effort debut at #1 on the gospel charts, Hammond talks exclusively to That Grape Juice to dish on how the project came to be, exciting forthcoming ventures, and more.
