The 16th annual Trumpet Awards were held in the “A” last weekend (as well as a monster truck rally and an Atlanta Thrashers hockey game)! Downtown traffic was on lock…but I did navigate through in time to meet my friends at Stats to watch the game!
My favorite elf/actor/rapper, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges received the Usher Raymond Altruism Award for his philanthropy and his establishing a foundation to use music and the arts to connect to urban youth.
See all of the 2008 honorees over at The Trumpet Foundation.
Since I wasn’t privy to the goings on at the awards show, I dug up a few photos of the event. Attendees included Mayor Shirley Franklin, Chris Tucker, Brian Jordan, Andrew Young, Keith Sweat, Frank Ski and more.
