We’ve talked about the new social media app Clubhouse and how the invite audio-only environment is lighting up the art of conversation. On Saturday, December 26th, a group of the app’s users took innovation to the next level with an app performance of “The Lion King.”
Kam Dela and Bomani X, whose picture is the current icon for the app, served as musical directors. Award-winning actor Myles Grier provided the voice of Simba, and Mir Harris as Nala. Other featured entertainers include actress and producer Gina Belafonte, Dr. Victor, Minh Do, Brandon Rainey, Tunde Sho and more. PR services were provided by Artiste House – all people of color.

#MirSays Here’s the thing: We just made history on a pioneer tech with a cast & crew that was solely POC. Lion King should have been us from the beginning. Today we fixed that. I don’t ever ever wanna here you can’t find us. We are HERE. 🙏🏾🙌🏾✊🏾 #TheLionKingCH #StayTuned ✨
