(SL) – The Atlanta Falcons set off a new era in a new stadium Saturday and Sytonnia was on the field for all of the action! Get ready for an explosive season as we bring you all of the highlights up close!
(SL) – Atlanta is turning into the Hollywood of the south partly in part because of people like Oprah Winfrey filming their projects in the city; and actors like Keith David taking up residency while working. Greenleaf has become one of the most popular shows on television and Keith David stars as Bishop Greenleaf in the church drama.
Greenleaf is just one of over 150 credits David has under his name. So, it was no surprise when District 2 City Councilman Kwanza Hall wanted to honor the Emmy award winning actor with a proclamation and award from the Mayor’s Office for Film and TV.
He also declared April 30th Keith David Day. The presentation took place during that Arts and Icons Master Event for working and and aspiring actors. Led by Keith David and hosted by Sytonnia Moore, So You Wanna Be An Actor was a 4 hour workshop designed to give actors the foundation of basics and tips to hone their craft and work side by side with a legend.
After the workshop, David surprised the audience with a performance with his Jazz band! I know right…who knew? The man is synonymous with talent. And as expected, it was good…really good! He hopes to take up residency in Las Vegas and once the word gets out about just how good he is..I’m sure he’ll be booked in no time. In the meantime, you can catch him Wednesday nights on OWN playing James Greenleaf. The mid-season finale airs this week!
(SL) -The Atlanta Hawks had to face another one of their former teammates Friday night when they hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers and welcomed back their former sharpshooter Kyle Korver. After getting over the shock of being traded and getting adjusted to the Cavs’ offense being traded may have been the best thing to happen to Kyle and a subtle regret for Atlanta.
With Cleveland, all Kyle has to do is shoot. Long gone are the days of running around chasing shots, making it easier for him to do his job. Korver is shooting 50% from the 3-point line and he flexed that muscle against the team he used to drain shots for and helped Lebron James and Kyrie Irving lead Cleveland to a 135-130 win.
It look liked a guaranteed win considering Blake Griffin and Chris Paul were out. But Atlanta struggled out the gate against a Clippers Team that’s loaded with shooters. The Hawks at one point were down by 20 but fought back and dropped their deficit to 9 at one point. It was a battle that they would eventually lose 115-105. Post Game Guard Kent Bazemore who led Atlanta with 25 points talks about being outplayed, not capitalizing on 2nd chance points and other disconnects that kept them from the W.
(SL) – We’re back for a new full season of SytonniaLIVE jumping off Monday on Xfinity CH. 25 and 26 at midnight! The following week..we will be on our regular night of Tuesday!
(SL) – Dennis Schroder led the Hawks to their 4th win of the season over Houston 112-97. Schroder had a double double with 17 points and 12 assists. Post game he talked about sticking together, that block D. Howard put on KJ McDaniels and heading to Cleveland.
(SL) – Karen King has long been praised for her fashion sense and the reality star is finally sharing her vision with the world through a collection that is sure to stun even the most credentialed stylist or fashion critic.
Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta star Karen King hit the runway this past weekend with partner, fashion designer Linda Bezuidenhout to deliver an eye-popping collection that featured fabrics and prints from different parts of the world like Europe and the Far East.
Bezuidenhout picked each fabric according to the couture piece that she had in mind and it resulted in a gorgeous set of 60 pieces that would give any designer a run for their fashion in any given season. It was gorgeous. The duo premiered 40 pieces on the runway and the other 20 were exclusively released through their popup shop.
Some of Bezuidenhout’s favorite pieces included the sheer with 3D ensembles. The evening also included a performance by Karen King’s son, rapper Sas and guests were served delicious cuisine prepared by Chef Trey who specializes in Italian, French and Australian dishes.

(SL) – When Kyle Korver hit the court Tuesday night you could tell he was in a zone. He looked intense and although he was probably walking at a normal pace as he made his way through the line, the ferocious look he had in his eyes made it look as if he was walking in slow motion.
Korver was indeed about to make a movie. Out the gate the 3 point king was draining threes and forcing the Celtics to reevaluate any defensive measure they thought they could angle. Korver had 17 pts, 7 rebounds and shot 5-7 from the arc helping the Hawks take game 2 in the NBA playoffs 89-72. Yes, Korver had the same number of 3 pointers as the entire Celtics team. Korver also had 1 BS to add to a franchise record 15 blocks for the Hawks.
Post Game I asked the 3pt king about his shooting and the intensity he carried for the night:
Celtics Coach Brad Stevens was asked if they were slightly misled by Korver’s 2 pts in game 1 and he quickly responded with, “No.” Stevens said that Korver is the type of player that’s a part of Boston’s daily conversation. He said there were no excuses for what happened. Atlanta dominated the game and that’s it.
Coach Brad Stevens Part II
The Celtics were led by Isaiah Thomas who scored 16 points. Boston was held to just 72 points for the game and shot poorly from the 3 pt line (5-28). They shot just 32 % from the field.
