He wowed audiences with his Academy Award winning portrayal of Ray Charles in the biopic “Ray.” Now, Jamie Foxx takes center stage at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. This special hour will take viewers on an emotional and powerful journey from Jamie’s childhood to stardom through music, vignettes and with the help of special guests including Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige.

In addition to closing 2005 with the release of his debut album, UNPREDICTABLE, Foxx recently received a Grammy nomination in the Best Male R&B Vocal Performance category for his performance of “Creepin’” from the J Records’ release So Amazing: An All-Star Tribute to Luther Vandross. That was just one of Foxx’s recent unprecedented accomplishments. In addition to winning the 2005 Oscar Academy Award as Best Actor for his career-defining performance in Ray, he was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his part in Collateral, making him just the second male actor with nominations for two different films in the same year. Those roles, in conjunction with his acclaimed turn in the FX Networks’ Redemption, led to him being the first person ever nominated for three acting awards at the Golden Globes and four SAG awards in one year.

A classically trained pianist who was raised in the church, Foxx studied at San Diego Performing Arts College before moving into comedy on television and in film.
