I'll be helping Best Cellers raise money for cancer and AIDS research


Me and Joel Katz

Music industry giants including producers Dallas Austin and DeVyne Stephens; vocal coach Jan Smith, and Ludacris' manager, Chaka Zulu; along with longtime radio personality Frank Ski and me are teaming up for the annual Best Cellars Dinner benefiting the T.J. Martell Foundation.

Chairman emeritus is entertainment super-lawyer Joel Katz.

The T.J. Martell Foundation raises money for medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. T.J. Martell died at age 19 of leukemia in 1975. His father started the foundation in his memory, to honor T.J.'s dying wish that "no one else experience what I am going through." Since then the organization has raised vital funds in hopes of sparing other families the pain of losing a child or other loved one too soon.

The event's entertainment advisory board chairs include Bernard Parks, Don Perry, Robert Polay and Steve Smith. The entertainment advisory board includes Sharliss Asbury, Dallas Austin, Catherine Brewton, Charlie Brusco, Michele Caplinger, Thomas Carroll, Willie Carter, Lonnie Cooper, Bryan-Michael Cox, Shanti Das, Jeff Dauler, Bill Hajjar, David Innes, Charles Johnson, Niko Karatassos, Pano Karatassos, Jamal Lewis, Robin Meade, Rasheed Muhammad, Keith Perissi, Reggie Rouse, Frank Ski, Jan Smith, DeVyne Stephens and Michael Taormina.

"As the entertainment industry's premier annual event in Atlanta it is the only event where Atlanta's Rap, Country, Gospel, Rock, R&B and Jazz communities all gather together for one evening to raise awareness for innovative cancer research,"
