OWN To Air Special On WACO Theater's Annual Wearable Art Gala
Taking place this Saturday, the gala theme this year is A Journey to The Pride Lands, a nod to Disney’s upcoming Jon Favreau-directed The Lion King live-action remake which features the voice of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. Knowles-Carter serves as the event’s co-chair along with Solange, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams. Emmy-winner Tiffany Haddish is master of ceremonies.
The gala also recognizes Tyler Perry and other individuals for their contributions to the entertainment industry and world at large, through their art. Award presenters are Oscar and Emmy winner Viola Davis and author Shaka Senghor.
Jones is the executive producer of the primetime special through his Brand Maverick Entertainment company. This will mark his third collaboration with the network following the docuseries Black Love, one of OWN’s most-watched unscripted series debuts in network history and the Motherly Love special.
OWN Presents: Inside WACO’s Wearable Art Gala airs June 11 at 10pm ET/PT.
