The term “multi-hyphenate” may as well have been coined for Jamie Foxx.

In fact, there’s practically nothing in entertainment the Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy winner hasn’t done … except perhaps host a game show. At least until now! Join us for a special evening with the ultra-talented actor, singer and comedian as he talks about his latest gig as host and executive producer of what promises to be this summer’s most buzzed about TV hit, Beat Shazam. The groundbreaking game show will have teams competing for cash prizes to identify the biggest hit songs of all time, with the winning team attempting to beat Shazam — the iconic music app. Foxx will also discuss his storied career, from his early days in stand-up comedy and his time on In Living Color to his unforgettable turns in Ray, Django Unchained and other beloved films.
