Hollywood Comes to D.C.: ‘Power’ Season 4 Red Carpet Premiere

The Stars Network premiered season 4 of its hit show “Power” on Sunday, June 25, picking up where it left off, following James “Ghost” St. Patrick to jail. Tasha’s world is falling apart and Angela is hell-bent on getting justice for the murder of Greg even if it means taking the love of her life Jamie down for a crime he didn’t commit. And Tommy the enforcer? Of course he is doing what he does best: kicking ass and asking questions later.

Before the cable premiere, the cast, crew and network hosted their star-studded glitzy premiere in D.C. on Thursday, June 8, at the Newseum in Northwest. It could have been in New York or L.A. as expected, but they chose the District instead. Show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh has a connection to the city, spending most of her summers here growing up, so for her bringing “Power” to D.C. was a must.

The entire cast graced the red carpet, including Omari Hardwick, 50 Cent, Lela Loren, Joseph Sikora, Naturi Naughton, La La and Larenz Tate.

Local celebrities such as Washington Wizards guard John Wall and the cast of “The Real Housewives of Potomac” came through to support the hottest show of the summer.
