(Atlanta, GA) "Deliverance in Africa" & "Soweto Street Beat", will present "Zulu Kingdom" and "Lion Heart Gallery Exhibition" which will be a live South African gallery exhibition, musical, and dance production produced by the only professional South African dance, and theatre company in the United States of America www.sowetostreetbeat.net who have been featured in the New York Times, as well as esteemed by Former President Jimmy Carter.
In addition to an evening filled with dance, live music, and electrifying traditional African fashion design, we will also showcase a soul embracing documentary film presented by Deliverance in Africa founder, documentary photographer, and film director Calvin Lebu Evans Owner of www.calvinevansphotoshoot.com who will debut his "Lion Heart" gallery exhibition featuring life-sized original prints, and portraits that capture the resilient spirit, and soul of South Africa.
In this gallery exhibition we plan to reach and bring life, hope, excitement, and inspiration back to the failing schools, and communities in Georgia in an evening filled with fun, excitement, ministry, education, art, fashion, culture, dance, and music for all cultures, counties, and school districts to enjoy. "Saturday March 26th, 2016 will be a life changing, and exhilarating experience for the City of Atlanta & Austell GA.
After the founders of Deliverance in Africa Calvin & his wife Dawn Evans returned from their mission trip to South Africa with S.E.W. Ministry and "Servants Evangelizing the World founder Nina Slappy Blackmon, they were determined to help bring the beautiful culture of South Africa back to their hometown, of Atlanta, and all surrounding communities in order to share the beauty of the African culture with their family, and friends. This is not just an exhibition, it's a purpose, and a calling to bridge the gap between cultures, and all ethnicities in the mist of a obscure racial, political, and economical time period in America.
Evans realized that the image of Africa is often misrepresented in the media as a poor, broken, and under educated people, which is very far from the actual truth of Africa, and it's people. Africa is "powerful", Africa is filled with abundantly blessed, beautiful, and a determined culture of people who's story is theirs & ours. We feel this story of African resilience should be shared with the entire world. "We understand that Atlanta is quickly becoming a cultural mecca that celebrates art, however in this case art also has the power, and ability to educate those who desire to break away from the cultural stereotypes in order to experience, express, and learn something new about the continent of Africa.
This is not your typical African production. This exhibition is the first of it's kind to ever visit Atlanta."This is a ground breaking movement, and Atlanta is Zulu Kingdom's first stop before it's 25 state tour of the United States. Atlanta is where we chose to exhibit first in bringing the Soul of South Africa to the Heart of Atlanta.
The Zulu Kingdom is known internationally for their electrifying performances, and engaging cultural dance filled with powerful rhythmic drum beats, and authentic tribal Zulu attire. Soweto Street Beat promises to provide a stage show, and performance that you will always enjoy, and never forget. Soweto Street Beat has also performed the acclaimed Zulu Kingdom at Leadercast 2015 honoring Emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the late President Nelson Mandela, which was broadcasted in 70 countries around the world.
Executive Director Calvin Lebu Edward Evans is joined by Soweto Street Beat founders Peter, and Isabelle Ngcobo of Soweto Street Beat in what he knows will be a blessed, and powerful cultural movement of appreciation for South Africa, and African's all over the entire world with a love that will embrace all ethnicities, and cultures by producing our event in a spirit of #kingdomlove, #kingdompurpose, and #Kingdomunity "Togetherness". The "Zulu Kingdom" and "Lion Heart" Exhibition is scheduled for March 26, 2016 at 6pm.
This amazing, evening of art, dance, and culture will be hosted at the Dale Bronner Riverside Epi Center Theatre in Austell, GA located at 135 Riverside Pkwy, Austell, GA 30168, behind Six Flags over GA amusement park.

I was like watch out Joseline, hold on, slide over," revealed a reminiscent Stevie J. Later, he would go on to assert that while he was initially sleeping after waking up he joined the festivities. "I might have been sleep at the beginning but I definitely got involved."

(AllHipHop News) Recently, 2 Chainz has received some criticism from C-Murder. The Georgia native is staying focused and continues to invest his time into worthy causes. Last week, Mr. 4 Bracelets announced the upcoming Watch Out tour. In addition to his music, the altruistic rapper is sharing his blessing through his charity, the TRU Foundation.

That grateful father described his angst, "We ain't know where we was gonna go." He went on and spoke on his surprise, "We was not looking forward to nothing like this. It is way over our head, but we gonna learn how to deal with it. But we thank God for it. Now we don't have to cry no more. We don't have to worry nothin' no more."
After visiting a fundraising page set up by the Atlanta's Progression Church 2 Chainz discovered information about the family's precarious plight. "This right here ain't gonna save me taxes; it's in the beginning of the year. I'm looking forward to seeing their smiles," he stated before adding, "I'm looking forward to the kids growing up knowing that Uncle 2 Chainz came through. Keep praying. You gotta have faith. You gotta believe."
The TRU Foundation worked to bless the family with a two story home. It boasts five bedrooms. Check out the full video to find out how the family reacted.
