How Actress Shiloh Nelson is Surviving the Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
Shiloh Nelson stars alongside Sofia Carson in Netflix’s upcoming film “Feel The Beat,” premiering on June 19th. The film centers on ‘April’ (Carson) who is a Broadway dancer down on her luck; she ultimately returns back to her hometown and is recruited to train a group of young dancers for a big competition. Shiloh stars as ‘Ruby,’ a shy, hardworking girl who becomes the stage manager. To prepare for the role, Shiloh underwent a month of dance training alongside her co-stars. Working alongside Sofia Carson, she received amazing acting advice from the veteran actress, who taught her to always be present on set, even if you aren’t on camera. Shiloh Nelson has an impressive resume of film and television at such a young age. Her breakout role came in the Sony film “Mom’s Night Out” alongside Patricia Heaton. That same year, she starred in Disney’s film “Tomorrowland.” At five-years-old, she transitioned into horror to star in the box office hit film “Annabelle.” Aside from film, she has starred in a slew of television shows including “NCIS,” “Criminal Minds,” and “Grandfathers” alongside John Stamos. She also recently voiced the role of ‘Keia’ in the Disney Channel animated series “Puppy Dog Pals.” The Portland, Oregon, native describes herself as quirky, energetic, and fun. She loves channeling her comedic side and when she isn’t acting, she entertains through the TikTok account and YouTube channel that she runs with her older brother. The two siblings create content parodying common things that all siblings go through, with some female empowerment themes to coincide. Both their TikTok and YouTube accounts have soared, with their TikTok boasting around 3.8 million followers and their YouTube garnering 200,000 subscribers. Shiloh’s favorite subject to study is language and writing because she feels it helps her channel her creativity that she can then transition into her acting. She loves to bake and garden in her free time. She is passionate about being involved with food banks and has previously helped out organizations like Meals on Wheels, Feeding America, and No Kid Hungry. She admires Dwayne Johnson for his all-around work ethic and hopes to one day play the role of a female action star.

Everything from novice chefs taking a spin at Banana Bread to family meals now done with simple pantry ingredients. We would love to introduce you to one of TV's favorite bakers, Chris Tucker - Betta with Butta (ABC's "The Great American Baking Show") and recently featured with his famous Banana Bread recipe on INSIDE EDITION, to share with your audience his top baking tips and secrets, as he launches his own at home baking kits for two of his most popular recipes, with a portion of proceeds being donated to COVID relief efforts. Baking kits will be for his mouth-watering Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake (GF) and his Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies (V/GF) so anyone can enjoy at home.

When he's not working out of his recently acquired commercial kitchen space baking for the masses, Chris spends time continuing to hone in on his craft through reading and creating new recipes at home with his husband.

How S.W.A.T.'s Carlo Arrechea is Surviving the Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
Sizzling hot Havana, Cuba-born bilingual actor Carlo Arrechea is a star on the rise in Hollywood, recently making his U.S. prime time debut in the CBS hit TV series S.W.A.T. where he portrayed 'Gio Torres', a middleweight Cuban boxer, aka "The Caribbean King." In the series, Torres is a prize fighter set to win a huge upcoming match when his pregnant wife if kidnapped and held for ransom. He enlists the S.W.A.T. team and works with them to retrieve his wife right in time for the delivery of their first child. The heartfelt role has garnered him much media attention and was one that was especially significant to him as it tied back to his Cuban roots. A third-generation actor, Arrechea’s career began at the age of 6 when he played the son to his biological mother in a telenovela in his home country of Cuba. He fell in love with the craft and was selected as one of the stars of the children’s show “Los Chicos Altura” (“The High Kids”). In 2002 his family moved to Miami and he faced a culture shock that made him rethink acting. He decided to study psychology in college but dropped out after only one semester to return to his true passion. It was during this time that he got into theater and started receiving a lot of attention for his stage performances including “El Solar de la Palangana de Oro” by Raúl de Cárdenas, a work that opened many doors for him and earned him press coverage as the “new face of acting” by People en Español. From theater, he jumped into television where he began with small roles in well-known Telemundo and Univision telenovelas such as "Más saber el diablo", "El Cartel 2" and "Alguien te Mira". He also starred in two short films, "Fate's Decree" directed by Michael Ruiz and the super production "El Manantial", with renowned Sam Bradley as director. His career thus began to roll, and his name to be known on the Miami scene. Not long after he was cast in the successful Nickelodeon Latin America series "Grachi" which he starred in for three seasons (152 episodes). It was during this time that he also starred in his first leading film role in the romantic comedy LA REBÚSQUEDA, the highest-grossing Salvadoran film in the country's history. After his success in Latin America, Arrechea decided to move to Los Angeles to begin his crossover into the U.S. market. Throughout his acting career, he has starred in several television commercials, including the Johnnie Walker national commercial which toasts to immigrants and highlights their grueling path towards citizenship. He is a member of SAG-AFTRA and is an alumnus of the Stella Adler Academy of Acting. As a Cuban-born actor, Arrechea has always looked up to the original Latin Comedy star Desi Arnaz and a dream role for him would be to reprise the role of ‘Ricky Ricardo’ in a comedy series or film. In his free time Arrechea enjoys reading, meditating, and exercising, and sees every day the opportunity to grow and improve in all aspects. He also enjoys volunteering for The Ronald McDonald House, where he feeds, plays games, and speaks with children and parents who have seriously ill children or family members in hospital.

How Singer Jac Ross is Surviving the Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
In a time when change is needed more than ever, the enigma Jac Ross emerges carrying enough pain to incite cultural change and the love to remind us we’re all the same. For Jac Ross, his soul-stirring vocals are deeper than the ears that hear them. The sounds of his voice tell the stories of struggle and success, but most importantly impress a glimmer of hope in the hearts of those who witness his silky and powerful harmonies. Jac Ross embodies the iconic voices that shifted culture with songs such as “What’s Going On?”, “Change Is Gonna Come”, ”Strange Fruit”, “Fight The Power” and “The Blacker The Berry”. Singing upbuilding lyrics that advocate for cultural, social, and political issues, the vocal agent of change draws from the struggle of his own life experiences, almost like a Ta-Nehisi Coates-esque novel to deliver riveting engaging music that represents his community. Raised in the small town of Live Oak, FL, Ross’ adoration for music emanated from a bevy of factors. Exposed to an array of iconic soul and r&b singers, paired with the influence of his father’s career as a preacher, Ross’ precocious talent was nurtured at the early age of five. Though he came from a very strict household, Ross’ parents skillfully cultivated his talents by allowing him to dictate his own pace and tempo as a musician. As the self-taught pianist was polishing his craft in high school, he later bloomed finding interest in basketball, earning some attention to play on the collegiate level. Ross’ decision to decline those offers was due to his faith, love and confidence in his musical prowess. After completing high school, the determined musician gave himself seven years to make it in the music industry. During his seven-year climb, Ross’ journey was an arduous one. Ross’ hardships included recording in the dining room of his house, his child being born with a paralyzed arm — to his family being evicted to pay for their daughter’s surgery. Still, despite those colossal setbacks, Ross’ unwavering faith served as the vehicle to his glorious comeback. The self-proclaimed “Faith Dealer” noticed his luck changing when his co-writer Mezo, encountered R&B savant, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins at a mall in Florida. After an exchange of emails, Jerkins fortuitously opened the one which included Ross’ song “Gotta Be Mine.” Mesmerized by Ross’ spellbinding vocals, Jerkins asked for the rising singer to come visit him in- person for a meeting at his Orlando home. There, Ross delivered a riveting rendition of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” and an original song he crafted called “Freedom.” Enthralled by Ross’ musical makeup, Jerkins elected to sign the singer to his label Darkchild Records and work with him on his debut EP. After recording a whopping 88 songs, he and Jerkins began shopping around at different labels in hopes of finally finding a home. In 2019, Darcus Beese, President of Island Records personally signed the singer and now, Ross looks to shake the world with his debut project in 2020. Off to a speedy beginning, the emerging talent has already captured the attention of Ms. Cathy Hughes, founder and chairperson of Urban One Inc., who handpicked the crooner to open Urban One Honors, a televised special. The standing ovation received from cultural heavy hitters such as, Jamie Foxx, Billy Porter, Missy Elliott, Brandy, Chance the Rapper and others on his debut tv performance— speaks to Ross’s unique ability to capture audiences and his music that uplifts people of all ages. With more to come from Jac Ross, he has already begun to cement his place as the premier artist to watch going into the next decade.

It’s the kind that can potentially shift a culture – perhaps a generation. He embodies the iconic voice of some of his predecessors, and perhaps can someday join the pantheon of some of the greatest consciousness-raising American songs: “What’s Going On?,” “Change Is Gonna Come,” ”Strange Fruit,” “Fight The Power” and “The Blacker The Berry.” Singing uplifting lyrics that advocate for cultural, social, and political issues, the artist of change draws from the struggle of his own life experiences and comes with a message of hope – something we all are grasping more than ever. He is signed to Island records, and we are continuing to release music consistently, with an EP on deck. To date, we have released three singles: “It’s Ok To Be Black,” is both unapologetic and inspirational. “Saved” has become a fan favorite, partly due to the current state of our world.

How is Recording Artist Porcelan Surviving Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
Recording artist and songwriter, born and Raised in the Westwood area of South Memphis, TN. is today's contemporary urban/R&B “It Girl”. PORCELAN couldn’t help but ultimately pursue her musical aspirations, having immediately absorbed her historic musical surroundings from a young age while growing up in a family of instinctively musical people. “I don’t really remember it being anything I heard on the radio; I really m remember it being my family, like my Mom singing,” recalls the breakout songstress, when asked about the source of her first musical impression. “My parents are singers and musicians, so at family reunions it was really like `a thing'. Spurred by the encouragement of a fifth grade teacher who heard her voice early on, along with long car rides with her Mom listening and singing along to the likes of Bobby Womack, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye, school-aged PORCELAN found herself auditioning and performing for school graduation ceremonies which soon thereafter uncovered another musical gift…writing. “I started writing poetry I middle-school and realized I was good at it,” PORCELAN recounts. In keeping with that momentum, PORCELAN focused on building her reputation in music circles, doing everything from appearing on BET’s 106th & Park, collaborating on material with super-producer Timbaland, opening for Tank and gaining invaluable performance experience via a three-month tour of China with a cover band. “Doing show bands is totally different from being an original artist, so I had to learn how to entertain in that realm. Even though I was new to it, I started being around a lot of seasoned people who showed me the ropes." PORCELAN soon found herself in the studio with David Porter and fellow Made In Memphis songwriters/producers Hamilton Hardin and DeNarious Holmes recording her smoothed-out adult R&B debut single “The Real Thing Don’t Change” (along with “The One” and “Can You Hear Me Now”), which soon thereafter facilitated notable and buzz-worthy live bookings at SXSW (South By Southwest) and Essence music festivals. Once audience members and radio programmers increasingly grew aware of her simultaneously promoted EP, response to her second single release – the infectiously sumptuous beat ballad, “Lois Lane” – PORCELAN found her dream unfolding as she made her way up the Billboard R&B chart straight into the Top 15. While newfound fans await the forthcoming debut album, "Mood Ring", scheduled to be released later this spring, a steady-on-her-grind PORCELAN delivered her first Christmas album, "Joyful Hearts: A Season of Love", this past Holiday season. A most contemporary-sounding Christmas set which further displayed her knack for composing vibrantly soulful songs amidst thoroughly-pleasing, contemporary production.

How Kevin Makely is Surviving the Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
An amazing phenomenon is happening as we dig into another month of the "new normal" and Americans are looking for the newest and best entertainment choices in their living rooms. Recent original motion pictures which did not receive a long enough brick & mortar release are finding massive new audiences. Such is the case with hyphenate KEVIN MAKELY's indie Western, BADLAND (Cinedigm), in which he produced and stars alongside Mira Sorvino, Bruce Dern, Wes Studi, Trace Adkins, James Russo, Tony Todd and more. Hitting Netflix only last Friday, March 27th the Papa Octopus Prods. presentation is #3 on Netflix's movie chart and #7 overall amongst Netflix's massive library of offerings appealing to their 167 million subscribers. This astounding massive audience with exceptional word-of-mouth gives new synergy to the labor of love project Makely developed, fueled and actualized. The satisfying Western is, obviously, appealing to far more than genre enthusiasts with its especially strong cast, an entertaining spin and an a solidly crafted story. Directed by Justin Lee, Kevin Makely persuasively inhabits the lead role of 'Matthias William Breecher,' a man of few words, many bullets and lethally efficient manhunter. With his gravelly voice, formidable stare and confidant physicality, Makely establishes his tough-guy bona fides while portraying a Pinkerton detective hired by a slave-turned-Senator (Tony Todd) to track down war criminals who fought for the Confederacy. Indeed, throughout much of Badland, Makely's understated performance is an unassuming anchor for scenes with an especially strong ensemble whose colorful dialogue is peppered with memorable lines. Singer/actor Trace Adkins portrays a grandiloquent former general who, not surprisingly, would rather not be hanged for his wartime misdeeds. Dern and Sorvino's effective and affecting performances, are so emotionally and dramatically satisfying, they together forward the storyline via a chilling run-in with a violent land-grabber played by James Russo. 2020 Oscar honorree, Wes Studi figures into the mix as Breecher’s (Makely) not-entirely-friendly rival in the manhunting business Produced by Makely's Papa Octopus Productions (an amazing story in itself!) with partners Jennifer Ambrose and Shawn Nightingale, Badland is a Western in which te good guys actually have to pause and reload — repeatedly — to come out the other side.

Being more aware of her body while still maintaining her fitness goals has helped Brooke enjoy the process of competing for a big tournament again. Referring to herself as the "professional underdog," Brooke is taking in the small moments during her rigorous training program.

How Titus Makin Jr., aka Butterfly Ali is Surviving the Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
Butterfly Ali's blend of progressive R&B, indie hip-hop, thoughtful chillwave, and all-out pop explosions is a psychic liberation from genre, expectations, and convention. If he looks familiar, you're right to assume. Born and on IMDB as Titus Makin Jr., Butterfly Ali currently stars as gritty rookie LAPD officer on ABC's "The Rookie," and is recognized from his teenage breakout roles in the hit TV series "Glee" and "Pretty Little Liars." Now for the first time with his music, Ali has created a space where he can be entirely himself. In his new single "Listen to Me" out everywhere April 1st, Butterfly Ali makes a true musical statement of who he is in under three minutes. Though a backbone of warm bass wrapped tightly around "Be My Baby" drums, along with a soulful Gibson guitar and shimmering piano, he delivers a jaw-dropping throughline of emotion and melody which evokes the legends of Motown and Stax Records. Please see the private link to the standout "Listen to Me" single here: Butterfly Ali's love of Motown's big, bright beat and contemporary laid back grooves join together creating contrasting musical textures and moods... think Andre 3000, Marvin Gaye, Anderson .Paak and you're getting warmer. His signature voice is soft, airy, and authentically him in his recent breakout single "Rose." Followed by his anthemic single "Righteous" released just a couple weeks ago. Cinematic both in production and overarching themes, please see the beautiful music videos here: "Rose": "Righteous": Butterfly Ali has all the charm and careful attention to detail as you would expect from a perfectionist obsessed with 60's Motown, Stax Records, and 70's funk. For him, music delivers something that Hollywood just can't, where he accepts nothing but complete control over his art. He can be seen on his filming off days popping up in LA venues performing live, where he has done for the last few years cutting his teeth and honing his craft.

How Actress Jenn Lyon is Surviving Quarantine | AfterBuzz TV
In addition to her starring role as “Jennifer,” on CLAWS, she’s had quite a journey in real life and is no doubt using that road traveled to help inspire other women (and men). For years she struggled with an eating disorder that came close to ending her life, and thanks to the Renfrew Center in NYC was able to get the treatment she needed. Jenn is showing other women that it’s okay to take up space (we’re not all a size 2), and it’s okay to have a voice and to use it. Here’s a link to an article she wrote for Today Show ‘s website. In a recent interview she was quoted as saying: “I have openly discussed my struggle with eating disorders, and there is a quote that helps me when I start to backslide because of the ridiculous expectations we are fed. Naomi Wolf said “A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession with female beauty. It is an obsession about female obedience.” Jenn’s other credits include the FX drama “Justified,” where she portrayed the love interest of Timothy Olyphant’s character Raylan Givens, as well as “Army Wives,” “Louie,” and “Phil Spector,” amongst others. On stage she’s co-starred along the likes of Larry David in the hit Broadway show “Fish in the Dark,” and reuniting with Timothy Olyphant in the Off-Broadway hit “Hold On To Me Darling,” a role in which he hand-picked her to play. When it comes to Jenn Lyon, you will not meet a more down-to-earth, quick-witted and relatable woman. She’s as genuine and real as it gets-- so real in fact, that her CVLUX Magazine July issue (which she covered) was their best-selling issue to date.
