Jamie Foxx Covers 'Uptown' x3

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 4/04/2009 No comments
Jamie Foxx appears on the cover of the April/May issue of Uptown Magazine. In fact, he's on three of them. The magazine created three separate covers to coincide with its profile of Foxx as a triple threat--actor, musician, and comedian--and his new movie, The Soloist, that hits theaters this month. This is the second consecutive issue in which Uptown has presented three covers. Its February/March issue depicted President Barack Obama in three artistic designs.

If you aren't familiar with Uptown, it's a bi-monthly, national magazine that publishes stories that highlight the affluent African-American lifestyle. It launched in Harlem, New York in 2004 (hence the Uptown name) and last year began publishing regional editions in Atlanta, Washington D.C., and Chicago. It published its inaugural Charlotte edition in February ("A New 'Uptown' for Charlotte"), in which you may have seen my byline a few times. You can find a couple of articles written by me in the April/May issue as well, including an article on the best places in Charlotte to spot celebrities. Foxx wasn't one of those celebrities, but now you can spot him on a local newsstand.
