Peter Bailey, an alumna of Ivanna Eudora Kean will host a taping of his very popular NiteCap conversations series with Tone Bell, star of the new hit NBC Friday night sitcom Truth Be Told inside Charlotte Amalie Senior High’s Auditorium on December 18, 2015 at 12:30 pm. Bailey has invited juniors and seniors from Charlotte Amalie and Ivanna Eudora Kean high schools to be a part of the audience and partake in the introspective discussion with Bell about achieving and maintaining success.
The taping is being done in partnership with the USVI Department of Tourism. Several local artists are also scheduled to perform. Bailey, a nationally-recognized Miami-based author and journalist, felt it was essential to have Bell speak to the territory’s students. Before starring in Truth Be Told, Bell starred on NBC’s Bad Judge and VH1’s Single Ladies. NiteCap has been credited by Rick Ross as “pushing the culture forward”. The very popular show with the who’s who in entertainment is filmed at different locations throughout the United States. Bell will be the latest guest to be featured that has included the likes of Mike Tyson, Fantasia, 50 Cent, Ice T, Janelle Monae, Chad Johnson and Mike Epps. The show is routinely featured on Vibe, BET, MTV and Huffington Post to name a few. Before launching NiteCap, Bailey wrote for Time, Newsweek and Miami Herald. His book on the life of hip hop star Trick Daddy was praised as “one of the pop music gems of 2010” by the New York Times. Bailey hopes bringing the show home to St. Thomas will provide inspiration for youth and serve as positive media exposure for the territory.
“I’ve always wanted to create a bridge for Virgin Islands’ youth to connect to their dreams and with those who can make those dreams a reality as well as stir a cultural and economic renaissance of sorts in the territory,” says Bailey. “I’m happy that tourism and education officials embraced this vision.”
The event is free and open to the public with guests required to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Taping begins promptly at 12:30 pm.
