Blige, Michelle Obama, Ne-Yo, Queen Latifah, and Whitney Houston, to make this show a viewing time that is always well spent. Jesse Collins Entertainment plays an integral role in identifying these prominent African-Americans who have made an impact on our culture and it consistently provides the foundation of a truly captivating show.
