CeeLo Green took the stage to present three lucky winners tickets to Funk Fest 2016 scheduled to take place this weekend in Atlanta, GA.
The evening’s performances proved why Atlanta is considered a breeding ground for emerging talent and why ATL Live on the Park is the perfect platform for new talent!
