Tyler Perry on Jay Leno

Movie mogul Tyler Perry is so excited about holding auditions for an upcoming project on the 2014 Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage cruise that he took it to national TV on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.

“What is this about you holding auditions on a cruise ship?” asks Leno.

“Tom Joyner does this cruise every year to raise money for colleges and what was so fantastic about it is, he said this year, we’re gonna have someone be on your show. So let them come and audition. Come on the cruise and let these people audition,” Perry explains.

Celebrating its fifteenth year the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage continues the Ultimate Party with a Purpose®, supporting students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities setting sail March 16th, from Miami, Florida. For eight days and seven nights, almost three thousand passengers will be on board the Carnival Conquest with some of the most fantastic artists in soul music from today and yesterday including Kem, Robin Thicke, Nelly, Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Ice Cube, George Clinton, Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant, Shaggy, Chante Moore, and comedian Katt Williams.
