Black Girls Vote and Party At The Mailbox Celebrate Voting Day In Atlanta With An Exclusive Virtual Party

Voter education campaign, Party at the Mailbox, has announced their ATL edition of the Virtual Election Party. Taking place on Facebook Live, Atlanta residents, supporters and voters can all share in the excitement of voting for the Georgia runoffs. Hosted by Bri Renee of Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 FM with sounds provided by ATL legend DJ Mars and DJ Reese, party attendees will have the chance to win prizes, meet new voting enthusiasts and hear classic ATL sounds!

Launched in Baltimore earlier this year to help fill the gap left by the pandemic’s shutdown of traditional in-person GOTV efforts, Party at the Mailbox is a non-partisan voter education and voter activation campaign created to help celebrate democracy, build community and ensure voters are informed how to cast their ballot in the 2020 elections. Atlanta became the fourth city to participate in the campaign as all eyes are on Georgia for the Senate special election. Philadelphia, Detroit and Baltimore have also participated in the community driven initiative during the presidential race.

Party at the Mailbox has partnered with local community organizations including Muslimahs Endure, Emerging 100 of Atlanta, TRU Foundation, NOLIJ Foundation and more as well as receiving support from celebrities such as Porsha Williams from the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise and Christine Adams from The Black Lighting tv series, on this initiative to expand voter participation and turnout.

Rolling Loud Announces “Home For The Holidaze” Livestream as Miami 2021 Sells Out

Pivoting from a live music behemoth to a full-fledged media company due to the pandemic, Rolling Loud plays a crucial role in hip-hop culture. Continuing its run of quality livestream events, Rolling Loud announces “Home For The Holidaze,” airing December 15th exclusively on Twitch. Headlined by Rick Ross, “Home For The Holidaze” is Rolling Loud’s third livestream event of 2020, following the two multi-day “Loud Stream” virtual festivals.

Like the “Loud Stream” virtual festivals, “Home For The Holidaze” will feature multiple hours of live performances–with no pre-recorded sets or segments–accompanied with interviews and commentary from the Rolling Loud team, including hosts DJ Scheme, JenesisGiselle, and DJ Five Venoms. The ideal accompaniment to at-home mosh pits or chestnuts roasting on the open fire–whatever floats your holiday boat–”Home For The Holidaze” airs at 6pm ET/3pm PT on Rolling Loud’s Twitch channel.

“Home For The Holidaze” arrives as Rolling Loud prepares for Rolling Loud Miami 2021.

Occurring at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL on May 7th-9th, 2021, Rolling Loud Miami is currently sold out.

Throughout the pandemic, Rolling Loud made headlines and entertained fans with their “Loud Stream” series of virtual festivals. The first livestream boasted headlining performances from Swae Lee and Ski Mask The Slump God, and generated over 4.4 million views from over 3 million unique viewers. Offering an elaborate Halloween theme, the second livestream featured headliners Trippie Redd and Gunna and topped Pollstar’s Livestream Chart for the second time.

The “Loud Stream” virtual events are part of Rolling Loud’s wide-ranging partnership with Twitch, which includes daily live hip hop-driven programming, offering special guests and original live shows like The RotationThe Leak, and Loud Gaming.
