Where is Nate Jackson Now? | BHL’s Gone Viral

In the not so distant future, when the first urban comedy dictionary is finally published, there will be a short list of definitions and references under the word “electrifying.”  At the top of that list, taking up the majority of the page will be a smiling, action photo of a young stand-up comedian and future comedy Hall of Famer, 2010 Bay Area Black Comedy Competition winner and cast member of Nick Cannon’s Wild’n Out, Nate Jackson.

From the moment he takes the stage and grabs the microphone, until he puts it to rest, back in its stand, you can actually feel the electric comedy energy surging through your body, in the form of constant laughter.  And on your way out of the club or theater and even into the next day, you’re still feeling the comical and in some cases, medicinal effects of experiencing a Nate Jackson comedy show.

A born entertainer and showman, Nate doesn’t need the first few minutes of his act to “warm up” or for the crowd to warm-up to him before he starts getting funny.  What makes Nate so unique is that he’s instantaneously hilarious.  Once you start laughing at a Nate Jackson show, it’s going to be hard to stop.

Cracking up crowds of all sizes with his razor-sharp wit, engaging stage presence and his high-energy style, Nate is loved by audiences ranging in ages from 18 to 83… and counting.  With more than a thousand performances under his belt, Nate is one of the most versatile and experienced stand-ups under age 30, on the circuit today.

A Seattle-area native and graduate of Eastern Washington University, Nate began his journey in comedy as a full-time college student.  He majored in Organizational Communications while pursuing an extracurricular minor in Stand Up Comedy.  Instead of the on-campus classroom where he pursued his traditional studies, his classrooms for comedy were the clubs in and around Spokane.

A featured comic in national tours in 2008 and 2009, Nate has worked in some of the most prestigious comedy clubs across the country and has shared the stage with urban comedy notables such as: Don ‘DC” Curry, Bill Bellamy, J. Anthony Brown and Tony Roberts.  Nate is eager to learn and take on new challenges in comedy.  As a result, his career never ceases to move in the right direction.  In 2010 he won the nationally acclaimed Bay Area Black Comedy Competition, making him a member of an exclusive alumni including: Jamie Foxx, DC Curry, Craig Robinson, Rodney Perry, Mark Curry and many more.

In early 2014, Nate was a featured performer on BounceTV’s #1 Rated Standup comedy show Off The Chain and also on BET’s completely revamped ComicView. In early 2016, Nate was a stand out performer on MTV’s #1 Rated and newly syndicated show Nick Cannon Presents Wild’n Out.   Nate Jackson is one to watch, as his career unfolds and one to work with now.

Where is Kevin Ross Now? | BHL’s Gone Viral

Join Host Neema Skye and Kevin Ross as they discuss the 30 million view mash up’s created by Kevin, his new label Art Society Music Group, and the new album Audacity releasing January 31st 2020.
Kevin shares his intimate views on relationships, why he choose Audacity to be the title of the new album, Missy Elliot giving him a personal shout out on social media, having Essence Magazine use him as a prodigy to promote their event, what makes him the King of R&B, and a snippet of vocals from the album Audacity.

Kevin Ross is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter and producer who had quickly gone from performing once every three months to opening for R&B/Soul legend Maxwell five times a week.

Ross, who began his career as a songwriter, got his big break when he secured his first placement with Jamie Foxx after graduating from college. In 2012, the Washington, D.C. native signed a major recording deal with Motown Records and released his first major project, Dialogue in the Grey (EP), two years later.

2014 proved to be a breakout year for Kevin Ross. Known for his soul-drenched, buttery, smooth vocals, he was named AOL’s “Best New Artist of 2014” and landed a national holiday campaign with Glade that brought joy to American households across the country. His journey to the stardom, however, wasn’t an easy one. “I would take odd jobs to make ends meet and keep the lights on. Odd job during the day…studio at night.” he explained. “I had a few placements under my belt but none of them could sustain me. I had to do what I had to do.” Ross maintained his star power via social media by showcasing his undeniable talent through a series of mash-up music videos. “My mash-up videos are something that helps stretch my musicality and creativity.” he says.

After a few delays, Ross released his long-awaited debut full length album The Awakening in March of 2017. The album’s first single, “Long Song Away” peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Song chart and at Urban Contemporary Radio with the follow up single “Don’t Go” cracking the Top 15. The chart-topping success of The Awakening led to Ross receiving several award nominations: Best New Artist (Soul Train Awards), Outstanding New Artist (NAACP Image Awards), and New R&B Artist (iHeart Radio Awards) and headlining his first national tour. In September of that same year, he released his third studio project, Drive (EP).

Following the release of Drive (EP), Ross found himself in a transition that led to a brief hiatus from music. He’s been hard at work in the studio preparing new music for fans that have been patiently awaiting his return to enjoy. Luckily, they won’t have to wait for long. Audacity, Ross’ fourth studio project, is slated to be independently released in 2019 on his new label (Art Society Music Group/ EMPIRE). “Creating Audacity has been an exciting process for me. I really followed my instincts and let the music guide me the whole way.” he says. “This album has a lot more grit to it. It introduces new sides of me while still reinforcing the essence of my art.”
