To say that we rocked the big top in a major way, while in Savannah, is the understatement of the year! We laughed… we danced, and we even put a ring on it! Kicking off in the Peach state couldn’t have begun at a better pace, and now we are ready to ramp it up in our home sweet home… Atlanta…
The Circus started as a vision, and became a reality in this very city we lovingly refer to as HOTLANTA. While New York might be home to JLO and Jay-Z and L.A. may be home to Ice Cube and Dr. Dre… The UniverSoul Circus proudly reps Atlanta to the fullest.
It all started over sixteen years ago in a little office on Roosevelt Highway. As a matter of fact, the circus was birthed in the same place where the hit urban gospel play, A Good Man Is Hard to Find, was launched. And a little more knowledge for you: Did you know that the Original New York City Fresh Festival II was started in Atlanta? AND by some of the same people that started the UniverSoul Circus? We are less than two decades old, and have tons of history already!
Opening night in Atlanta is just a day away and we can’t wait to make your eyes bulge out of your head with the soulful, spectacular and stimulating performances! One minute you will feel like your heart is about to beat out of your chest, and the next - you are slapping your knee in laughter. This year’s show is off the chain. One thing is for sure… the whole country needs some comedy relief and believe me, one of our new show additions, Mrs. Maggie Shirley Lee Mae Frances Upshaw Jenkins is the golden ticket! That’s why it takes seven names to even begin to explain who this woman is. She’s your auntie, sister, mother, friend and she knows her business…and everybody else’s too! She’s got gossip, advice, and wisdom to share, and she’s going to share it…whether you like it or not!
From the Soul Train line to the Soul Circus Divas - brace yourself to be a part of the most interactive and entertaining circus on earth. We didn’t even mention BOLD… how many circuses do you know that has members of the audience dropping it like it’s hot in the middle of the ring? Exactly, NONE!
You don’t want to miss this. V-103’s Greg Street will be broadcasting live from the big top, there will be celebrity appearances, there might even be a few new additions. There’s no telling what we may have in store!
Boy does it feel good to be home, there’s no place like it.
