In the newly christened John Singleton Soundstage in Atlanta, the cocktail reception was the starting point for A-listers, studio execs, singers, producers, politicians and one former president.

And one former Quarterback.  

Current activist Colin Kaepernick and his girlfriend Nessa Diab got the invite. 

The landmark space features 12 soundstages named after Black Hollywood icons, including the late Diahann Carroll, Denzel Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry, Sydney Poitier, Della Reese, Spike Lee, Harry Belafonte, Cicely Tyson, Whoopi Goldberg and Will Smith.
