Atlanta, Ga. (January 31, 2017) – Twisted Mines Star Kenny G. Strong recently appeared at the 25th Annual Trumpet Awards to pay tribute to the iconic R&B group New Edition. The show, which aired on Bounce TV on January 29, featured the actor and dancer as a member of the quintet “The Transitions”.
The group saluted the evening's Lifetime Achievement Trumpet Award honorees with a performance of “Candy Girl”. The performance proved to be crowd-rousing and filled with nostalgia.
Strong is currently preparing to return to production for Season 2 of the new series “Twisted Mines”. Production is scheduled to begin mid-February in Atlanta. The series follows his character hip-hop dancer, Omari Smith as he struggles with relationships with his high maintenance girlfriend, his step-mother, and friends. The first season opens with Omari being on house arrest from a previous encounter with the local police as he battles the consequences that are delegated by the judge.
