Jamie Foxx joined Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas on stage for a special performance during their stop in Brooklyn, NYC last night, July 8th. Foxx performed the medley of “Empire State of Mind” and “Georgia On My Mind” with Demi, as well as his smash hit “Blame It” with Nick. He also sang “Gold Digger”.
Jamie brought his youngest daughter Anelise to the BET Awards last Sunday. Foxx was on hand to help pay tribute to the late Muhammad Ali. He reminisced about meeting Prince and the boxing legend before introducing The Champ’s daughter Laila Ali to the stage.
Listen, 2016 has been a tough year. We lost a lot of heroes and a lot of great people.
Jamie remembered Muhammad Ali as someone who “stood up at at time when no one was standing up. It’s definitely more than just boxing, more than just entertainment, but person who has shaped all our lives.”
“I wanted to sing with Jamie Foxx because he just has a fantastic voice. And soulful, very, very soulful sound,” Streisand says in the clip. “Jamie brings so much emotion to his performance. He really makes those inspirational lyrics soar.”
The Sound of Music classic tune “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” is set to appear on Barbra Streisand’s forthcoming album Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, due later this summer on August 26.
During last night’s Game 7 of the NBA Finals, a new advertisement for Verizon aired portraying Jamie Foxx as Future’s father “Past”.
Jamie performs a parody of the Atlanta rapper’s hit single “F*ck Up Some Commas.” “They call me the Past, my son is Future. I taught that boy everything,” Foxx raps in the hilarious video, rocking fake white beard, dreadlocks and Future’s signature hat.

“My daughters are right here and they are excited to get to meet a person who is strong, capable and who just happens to be a woman … Ladies, don’t let anyone steal this moment away from them and get Hillary Clinton in the White House.”
Later the night, Jamie was seen leaving the Greek Theatre.
Showtime has ordered a pilot for White Famous, a half-hour comedy executive produced by Jamie Foxx and Californication creator Tom Kapinos.
Kapinos has written the script, based on an idea by Foxx, who will also play a recurring role on the potential series.
White Famous focuses on a talented, young African-American comedian whose star is rising, forcing him to navigate the treacherous waters of maintaining his credibility as he begins to cross-over towards becoming “white famous.”
“I came up from standup comedy, so to be able to share that aspect of my life on screen with a project like White Famous is incredibly exciting,” said Foxx. “We couldn’t have found better partners than Showtime, Lionsgate and Tom Kapinos to tell this story in the best possible way.”
“They say you can’t go home again, but I’m thrilled to be back at Showtime, where I’m equally jazzed to be working with the brilliant Jamie Foxx on the creation of another wickedly profane TV antihero,” said Kapinos.
