Despite the fact that it was freezing outside of “Hot Atlanta,” lol the celebrities still came out in high fashion and walked the red carpet for this epic event to represent the Trumpet Awards. The performances were great and I really enjoyed watching the beautiful lady legends of Hip Hop open the show! I’m talking about Monie Love, MC Lyte, Salt N Pepa, Spinderella and Yo Yo! Of course R&B sensation Raheem Devaughn put his heart and soul into his songs and blessed the audience with his soulful hits ! We definitely thank the lovely founder of the Trumpets Xernona Clayton for keeping the Trumpet Awards relevant and for being a Pillar to our history and the community. Please make sure you tune into Bounce TV to catch these performances on January 29th- 9:00pm EST. and January 31st 3:00pm EST. You don’t want to miss this ! Photos courtesy of Briana Crudup
