Today’s Programming Highlights:

gil-birmingham1On demand Gil Birmingham, who plays wheelchair-bound Billy Black in Twilight, is one spiritual guy. “The soul and essence of an individual isn’t determined by just their physicality,” he says to Artists on Demand—but adds, “Being in a wheelchair is a lot more comfortable than actually having to stand around for 12 hours.”

musiq-soulchildAt 1 PM Host Cyrus Webb grooves with R&B star Musiq Soulchild, whose 2002 album, Juslisen, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts and went platinum, yielding the singles Halfcrazy and Dontchange. The 11-time Grammy nominee will fill us in on his upcoming projects.

queen-harrisonAt 7 PM Get Up Show host Chris LaMonica mixes it up with Queen Harrison, the NCAA champion hurdler from Virginia Tech who competed in the 2008 Summer Olyimpics in Beijng. Queen will fill us in on what’s coming up next in her stellar track career.

gloria-hendry2At 8 PM Gloria Hendry—who, long before Halle Berry mixed it up with Pierce Brosnan—made history as the first-ever African American female lead in a James Bond flick—drops in on Four Aces Network to look back at her film career, which included starring in Black Caesar and Savage Sisters.

talib-kweliAt 9 PM Host Tazz Daddy kicks it with rapper Talib Kweli, who put in a guest performance on the Kanye West single Get ‘Em High—and on Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show, with pal Mos Def. Talib will talk about rap diva Nicki Minaj, what he can’t stand about his fans and more.

charles-keating1At 11 PM Host Silas Kain gets up close and personal with Emmy winner Charles Keating, who’s perhaps best known for playing Carl Hutchins on Another World, while also gracing such soaps as Port Charles and All My Children—not to mention Broadway and the West End.
