Out & About: 2016 Atlanta Mayor’s Masked Ball

By on January 3, 2017

All roads led to Atlanta’s historic Marriott Marquis hotel recently as the United Negro College Fund  held their 33rd annual Mayor’s Masked Ball. It’s one of the hottest tickets in town and serves as the organization’s premier fundraising gala and social event. The ball focuses on raising awareness of the need and benefits of a college education and the contributions of historically black colleges and universities.

We spotted a who’s who of international celebrities and Atlanta socialites including singers  Tyrese and Usher as well as rappers Jeezy and Future, who each reportedly donated $25,000 to the cause. We also spotted actress Gabriel Union, gospel singer Vashawn Mitchell, soul sisters Avery*Sunshine, Angie Stone in addition to reality stars Phaedra Parks and Stevi  e Baggs.

One of the evenings highlights was a performance from legendary musician Sheila E. who performed a funky tribute to her mentor, Prince.
