Mr. Tyler Perry, the 1st African American to ever own a studio without any outside backing!! Wow!!! Now that's freedom for real! To go from being homeless to outright OWNING your own studio sends a hope filled message to the world that with God, all things are possible!!! Congratulations @tylerperry !! 👑 #TylerPerryStudios #blackhollywoodatl #TheBestisYet2Come #OWNERSHIP #Theheadandnotthetail #TheLastShallBeFIRST #Overcomer #BUILT
I am so inspired and motivated by @tylerperry as I have grown and gained greater insight what I know for sure is to build your own table. Stop asking people for a seat at someone else’s. Buying a old confederate base for $250,000,000 and turning 330 acres into the largest studio. Like Tyler, I thank God for being underestimated because they never see you coming. Thank you 🙏🏽 Tyler for inspiring so many to dream bigger. Bravo! Dreaming, believing and inspired! #beingkarenalston #tylerperrystudios #imaginethis #makenosmallplans #buildyourowntable #underestimated #dreambigger
They get to dedicating the Oprah Winfrey soundstage and say we need you all to line up on your numbers. Then this happens ... One of the most amazing moments in my career. Tyler Perry has stars cemented in history for US!!!! It was a surprise and the tears and hugs followed. Thank you Mr. P! I’m so blessed to know my son will visit one day and see his mama’s name. Your generosity never ceases to amaze me.
8 years ago, I stood outside the gates of Tyler Perry Studios, wanting so badly to go inside, but the guard denied me entry. I then slipped my foot under the fence, whispered a prayer over the property, and declared Joshua 1:3 over the land. Now I’m back again.. but this time, receiving an immortalized #STAR on the ground of the NEW @tylerperrystudios?? It is still so surreal... All I can tell you is.. they that WAIT ON THE LORD!! My GOD! He will EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS, EXPAND YOUR VISION, and ENLARGE YOUR TERRITORY unlike anything you’ve ever SEEN!! Thank you Tyler, from the bottom of my heart, for creating a space for “us”, and for showing me, up close and personal, ALLLLLL that is POSSIBLE WITH GOD!! My life is forever changed.. 🙏🏾 #TylerPerry #IMAGINEThis #TylerPerryStudios #Oprah #WriteTheVision #MakeJesusFamous #WalkOfFame #GloryToGLORY #FaithToFAITH #IfLovingYouIsWrong #Manifestation ✨✨✨ #Joshua1v3 #Habakkuk2v2 #Isaiah54v2 #Isaiah40v31 #Psalm37v11 #1Peter5v6 #Revelations12v11 #John10v10 ✨✨✨
After being so happy for My Boss receiving his much deserved Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, I wondered if that opportunity for me had passed. Then last night , during the Grand opening dedication of the Tyler Perry Studios, This incredible man, @Tylerperry surprised me with my own star. To be cemented in history at his studio. Forever . I am eternally grateful to this wonderful man for this incredible gift. Thank you Mr. P for taking a chance in me. Bringing my dreams to reality and teaching me to Dream Bigger. #Blessed #Grateful #Forever @tylerperrystudios
One man came from nothing. And he built this miracle. You can see 11 of the 12 #soundstages more clearly in the second photo. I’ve filmed two seasons of a show at this extraordinary studio that will air next year - one of many hits shot here - the lot being so busy that this inspiring opening was just Saturday. . At the spectacular #gospelbrunch on Sunday #TDJakes talked about faith. Noah didn’t build a steering wheel on the Ark because the great storm would decide the way. And only the largest storm can take you to the top of the mountain. Have faith in that storm, especially if you’re in it now. Celebration, connection, awe & inspiration. Congratulations and thank you @tylerperry for building the platform #faith #thankful #staystanding #staythecourse . . . . . . . . . #grateful #courage #noah #mountaintop #studioopening #blacktie #imaginethat #imaginethis #miracles #filmmakers #celebration #awe #tylerperrystudios #mtararat #glorious #inspiration #filmmaking #thankyou
On Tuesday I was in Los Angeles celebrating Tyler Perry receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was inspiring and I thought to myself “One day I’ll get my star.” Last night, I was in Atlanta celebrating the Grand Opening of #TylerPerryStudios. After the dedication of the sound stages, I was shocked to tears when TP unveiled the stars he created to celebrate his cast. Thank you @TylerPerry! I’m honored to be a part of your Dream!
It’s hard to put in words how amazing last night was...Tyler Perry’s Dream Studios Grand Opening Celebration was truly a night to remember. We weren’t allowed to take any photos or videos of the top notch festivities he had planned for all of us but from damn near ALL of Black Hollywood showing up and showing out....to the fireworks and studio building dedications to Denzel, Halle, Spike, Cicely Tyson, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah, Will Smith, (all there to accept their honor)...to the late Ruby Dee & Ossie Davis, Della Reese, Harry Belafonte, Sidney Portier and the beautiful Dihanne Carroll who was excited to be there but passed away the other day...to the grandiose and beautiful dinner with a surprise performance by Mary J. Blige, Ledisi and Jennifer Hudson. No matter which way I turned somebody was next to me, from Beyoncé and Jay Z to Bill and Hilary Clinton and everyone in between, lol. I can probably say who WASN’T there faster than I could say who WAS....and one of the nicest surprises was my husband @officialmichaeljai being honored with his own star on Tyler’s studio Walk of Fame! Congrats @tylerperry on all your success and inspiring so many! ❤️🙏🏾🌹🙌🏾🎬⭐️⭐️⭐️ #tylerperry #tylerperrystudios #dreamstudios #gala #celebration #redcarpet #blackhollywood #atlanta #husbandandwife #powercouple #blacklove #love #actors #nighttoremember #theovalonbet #bet #blackexcellence
This wknd was INCREDIBLE! I am so inspired to DREAM BIGGER than what I even thought was possible. Thank you @tylerperry. Thank you sir. I couldn’t even picture sharing this amazon moment with anyone other than my love! Thank you @smartdskirts for helping me embrace this moment that’s happening in OUR lives. I know these things can be stressful, but you handle it all with such effortless grace & sophistication. Thank you for taking this journey with me. 👸🏾
So this happened today ... I got to hobnob with the iconic but gracious, Ms. Oprah Winfrey during Tyler Perry’s Godspell Brunch. It was an epic weekend but chatting with my idol @oprah, just took the cake . We spoke about our possible kinship. I told her I was born a Winfrey . My dad is Raymond Winfrey Jr. and my paternal family is from Tennessee where her people are from also . She graciously replied “ Oh yes, we are definitely kin! “ HA! I’m blessed!! 🙏🏾 More pics to come.... #tylerperry #tylerperrygrandopeningoct2019
What a freakin’ whirlwind of a weekend. So many thoughts. So many emotions. So many words and yet I can’t even begin to explain how I feel. Because not only is @tylerperrystudios historical- being the first fully black owned studio (on land that was once a Confederate Army base). Not only is it larger than the Paramount, Warner Brothers and Disney studio lots COMBINED. And not only is it an astounding physical manifestation of a man’s dream that knew no bounds....but it’s also where I met my future husband (swipe left to see our first pic together one earrrllyyyy morning before taping at the OG TPS...4 years ago 😳😂). @tylerperrystudios is the genesis of our family’s history and it’s home.
The title for the grand opening of @tylerperrystudios this weekend, ”IMAGINE THIS”, could not have been more fitting! My goals are simple: Make my family proud, and set a high standard of excellence for my daughter to surpass (I know she’ll beat her daddy one day and I wouldn’t want it any other way). Having a STAR dedicated to me in front of my mom and being able to forever have a symbol of achievement to show my little girl is something I never imagined ⭐️ I’m forever grateful to my friend, my mentor, and my boss @tylerperry for allowing my dreams to live inside of his! No pictures of me alone because none of this is possible without my cast and the people that have believed in me during the times I’ve struggled believing in myself. I’ve never left anything in my life feeling so inspired and hungry for the next chapter! #imaginethis #tylerperrystudios #iflovingyouiswrong #eddieforever
"Birthday Queen" #shoutout to my #queen of a #wife @briana.christie on her #special day #her #birthday today we #celebrate your #freshstart blessed to share this journey with you to call you my #wife my #bestfriend and the mother of my children. Here to you my #timeless #love my #bottomline #loveyou
(1/2) #ImagineThis —A confederate army base is now a studio the size of Warner Brothers, Sony, and Disney combined— and owned by one black man. To further this magical, historical event, sound stages were dedicated to our black legends and icons including Oprah, Denzel, Halle, Whoopi, and Will Smith. To say this was a moment of a lifetime is an understatement. There are no words to describe what I was so blessed to witness, but I just have to express my deepest gratitude at being included. My great friend and wonderful boss @tylerperry made sure that this was an appreciation for the culture, the team, and every last one of us that are lucky enough to share in his dream. Honoring our cast with these stars that will live at the new @tylerperrystudios is an incredible, thoughtful gift. With deepest love and appreciation, THANK YOU TYLER! 🙏🏽♥️
@tylerperry I will try to conjure up the words to articulate what this moment means to me. To say thank you is an understatement- the love and trust you have poured into me over years is paramount. I am indebted to you, I thank God you REALLY SAW ME! Thank you for this Tyler- I have tears in my eyes just writing this, thank you for making me a part of your legacy. I love your for life! 🖤⚡️ Dress by @michaelcostello Jewelry by @greeneandco
This was hands down one of the most incredible weekends of my life. Witnessing what my friend @tylerperry has accomplished, against all odds. His studio grand opening was unlike anything I’ve ever seen or experienced before. Also, because there has never been anything like this before! Leaving not only myself, but I believe every single person that was in that room with the ability to DREAM BIGGER. And let me tell you.. that was a room with some of the biggest dreamers this world has ever seen. 🙏🏽 I’m am humbled. I am floored. And I am beyond grateful I was able to be in that room. Right where I was supposed to be, when I was supposed to be there. I will continue to Dream. And make that dream come true. Opening my doors, so that I can create a platform for others to open theirs. Thank you for all that you’ve done @tylerperry For myself, my career and for every one else who may have never gotten a chance. For living knowing your path would lead you here one day and never giving up!! Congratulations on all your successes and the many many more to come!! You did this!! And it is incredible!!! 🙏🏽 My favorite part is The Best is Yet to Come!!! 🎇🎆 And thank you Molly for being my absolutely stunning date!

I cried tears of joy. Tears of appreciation.Tears of appreciation to our ancestors.That this once Confederate military base has be handed over for a new start. Tyler Perry Studios the first ever owner media studio. Some will try to minimize the full scope of the what Tyler Perry has accomplished.Every movie studio is Corprate owned. Tyler Perry Studios is owned by a black man. A King of Kings .I was so humbled to be asked to come share in the celebration of the opening of the studio and importantly the acknowledgement and dedication of the Magnificent Studio stages to Oprah Winfrey,Denzel’ Washington,Cicely Tyson ,Ozzie Davis and Ruby Dee,Will Smith ,Halle Berry, Sir Sidney Poitier,John Singleton,Diahann Carroll,Della Reese,and Spike Lee. My spirit was just overwhelmed with joy to be not only in their presence but all that came for anointing this new holy land of unlimited possibilities for African American people my people .Hearing Tyler’s wish to Dream Bigger .Its my hopes we all become more selfless. My heart was overflowing with appreciation for the incredible significance on this moment and reality. While I inhaled My ancestors and exhaled new dreams and wishes for new generations to come. Tyler Perry blessed me with a star ⭐️.I was In shock .Recognition I’m sure for not only the love we have been able to pour into his vision and craft that I hold so dear. But for the unfinished work that I know is possible in my heart to be an active ingredient in the love and support of all people across the world. Needing and yearning for a sign that you are not alone. I am not alone. We have each other to lean on. I love you @tylerperry thank you for my new reinforced mission. Still speechless but trying my best to articulate what overflows in my heart. But I know my action in this moment forward is even more important. Thanks my love @rosiewhitfield1 for always having my back and being the high end engine to this instrument. Thanks to all Cast of If loving you is wrong .More pictures to come but for now this will do. Attire by @connaisseurparis and Sunday brunch @shopagriculture @michelelopez_llc for making all this fashion come together.Thank you Dad,StevO rip.
