Upscale Publisher Bernard Bronner, Chris Tucker, Akon and Devyne Stephens cranked it up hard at the annual Christmas celebration

Devyne Stephens invited half the music, entertainment and sports industries in Atlanta to celebrate the holidays with authority and also give back to the community during the annual “This Christmas” at the Woodruff Art Center Galleria in Atlanta.

This year’s celebrity-drenched soiree paid the ultimate homage to four transcendent personalities — ASCAP’s Music Producer of the Year Polow Da Daon, basketball revolutionary Julius “Dr. J” Erving, retiring broadcast media icon Monica Pearson and BMI vice president Catherine Brewton — who made indelible contributions to the world of entertainment, sports and media. Their presence were augmented by the likes of Gucci Mane, Akon, Chris Tucker, Keri Hilson, comedian Rodney Perry, Mayor Kasim Reed, Martin Luther King III, Derek J, Lisa Wu Hartwell actress Demetria McKinney, Jasmine Guy, Super Bowl champion Eric Matthews of the Green Bay Packers along with a plethora of celebrities, dignitaries, legislators and educators.
