The 9th annual Jazz In The Gardens music festival went down this past weekend at Sunlife Stadium in Miami, Florida. The two-day event, hosted by DL Hughley, featured some of the biggest stars in R&B and Jazz, including Kelly Rowland, Trey Songz, Jamie Foxx, Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and more!

Some of the celebrity guests in attendance were actor and civil rights icon Harry Belafonte and comedian Kevin Hart, who introduced his pal Trigga.

One of the biggest surprises of the Saturday night performances was when Kelly brought out rapper Nelly to perform their Grammy-winning hit “Dilemma.”

“I asked [Nelly] to stop here, and he came by. I’m just so happy that it was a surprise,” Rowland told TheGrio. “I kept it a surprise because I wanted to do something special for Miami. I live here, so I have to.”

Jamie Foxx had some surprises of his own in store for the Miami crowd as well. He brought out R&B general Tank to sing a few of his own hits including “Please Don’t Go,” and join Foxx in a singing battle. But, Jamie really had everyone’s attention when he gave out $5,000 to the best female audience member who was willing to come on stage and show off her twerk moves.

Jamie Foxx Portrays Obama-esque Character in New ‘White House Down’ Movie


So, last weekend I took my nephew to see the new action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen. If you aren’t familiar, the basic plot is that Washington, DC, specifically the White House, is attacked by a terrorist group out of North Korea, they take over the building and hold the President hostage. A single ex-Secret Service agent is the countries only hope to spoil the plan and save the President. Quick opinion, it was a good flick, edge of your seat action and suspense. But, now I see there is another movie coming out this summer, which appears almost identical in the basic plot.

This film just so happens to be starring the multi-talented Jamie Foxx though, and he is playing the role of President of the United States (hence the posts title). However, even though Jamie is playing the leader of the free world as an African American man, he says we won’t see many Obama parallels, “I am not doing an impression of Obama,” he said. “Although certain times I do Obama-type things.”

The film, which is titled “White House Down,” also stars Channing Tatum as a police officer named John Cale, who helps fight off domestic terrorists to save the president and our historic monuments.
