LOS ANGELES, CA – Next Wednesday, May 21, NAACP Image Award nominated actress Elise Neal will be gracing the Rooftop 3100 stage with her new R&B group, “Assorted Flavors” for a special debut performance and television taping.

Elise Neal began her career on daytime television through a series of TV shows, initially landing the soap opera Loving on ABC and NBC’s seaQuest 2032, before securing her most notorious role on The Hughleys, starring as comedian D.L. Hughley’s wife. A multi-talented Neal was simultaneously featured in hit music videos, including Aretha Franklin’s “A Rose Is Still a Rose,” before quickly transitioning into film debuts such as Mission to Mars, Money Talks, and Paid in Full.
