On August 1-3, 2014 TSU alumnus Michael Strahan will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. To honor his achievement and celebrate Tiger pride, the Ocean of Soul marching band has been invited to participate in the prestigious Enshrinement Celebration by leading the Grand Parade through downtown Canton and performing at the Fan Appreciation Tailgate Party on the Hall of Fame Campus.

In appreciation, while broadcasting live with Majic 102.1 from the Breakfast Klub in Houston TX for the Texas Black Expo, Tom Joyner purchased 100 tickets to support Kevin’s film ‘Think Like a Man Too’ opening in theatres today.

“Since Kevin did the $50K donation I thought it would be a great idea to support his movie.  So I’ve bought 100 tickets to the 10am show,” Joyner stated. Tickets were giving out during this morning’s live broadcast.
