What’s up Detroit! Welcome back to my Review Corner where you will find the latest scoop on upcoming entertainment, food, and places to travel. Let’s chat. This month I would like to uplift my favorite power couple/family Graceyn Hollingsworth (the voice behind Gracie) and her parents Dr. Javoris Hollingsworth and Dr. Arlene Gordon-Hollingsworth. This Houston family is making their mark on YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook with these very entertaining Grace’s Corner videos. Gracie’s Corner will be a timeless collection of songs that mirror the 70’s Schoolhouse Rock! Yes, I said it. The videos provide educational songs for all children. But watch out parents, you will love them as well. Make sure you show your support and subscribe today.
