ATLANTA — V-103 hosted an ATL-style salon takeover for NBC’s highly anticipated new show, “The Wiz Live,” at celebrity stylist’s Gocha Hawkins, midtown salon with a live on-air afternoon broadcast.
Twenty five young ladies from the non-profit organization, Saving Your Daughters, transformed to little “Dorothy’s” for the day, as they attended the event and had a chance to get primped and pampered with nail and salon services.
The girls were able to meet some of their favorite local celebrities who were in attendance including: WVEE-FM on-air personality Ramona DeBreaux, Quad Webb-Lunceford (“Married to Medicine”), Dr. Heavenly Kimes (“Married to Medicine”), Shamea Morton (“Real Housewives of Atlanta”), LaTavia Roberson (“R&B Diva’s Atlanta”) and LaKenya Morris (“Cutting It In the ATL”).
About THE WIZ LIVE!
NBC embarks on its latest musical holiday tradition with a live television production of the groundbreaking Broadway show that brought the vivid world of Oz to life in a fresh, funky sing-along journey down the yellow brick road. Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the original show was a massive hit on Broadway and even spawned a feature film starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Now, a Tony-winning creative team, the hugely imaginative Cirque du Soleil Theatrical, and a diverse cast of show stopping performers will come together to create an eye-popping new take unlike anything seen before. From Executive Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron comes an awe-inspiring adventure overflowing with stunning spectacle and toe-tapping music.
