TV and movie mogul Tyler Perry will hold auditions for an upcoming project on the 2014 Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage cruise, he reported recently on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
“Tom Joyner does this cruise every year to raise money for colleges and what was so fantastic about it is, he said this year, we’re gonna have someone be on your show,” Perry explained to Leno, referring to the nationally-syndicated radio talk show host’s annual public cruise. “So let them come and audition. Come on the cruise and let these people audition.”
On March 16, 2014, the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage will set sail from Miami to continue the “Ultimate Party with a Purpose,” which supports students attending historically black colleges and universities. The eight-night cruise’s entertainment will feature Kem, Robin Thicke, Nelly, Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Ice Cube, George Clinton, Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, Shaggy, Chante Moore and comedian Katt Williams.
Tom Joyner is the host of a nationally syndicated urban morning radio show airing in over 105 markets. Through his foundation, he has raised $60 million to support students in need since 1999.
