On this date, the venue hosted a special evening with GMA’s Michael Strahan and Jamie Foxx in a one on one talk.
During this special evening, the ultra-talented, the Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy winning actor, singer and comedian talked about his latest gig as host and executive producer of what promises to be this summer’s most buzzed about TV hit, Beat Shazam.
