SEEN & HEARD
SEEN AND HEARD: Sean Penn, Etta James, Terrence Howard, Kathleen Turner and Seal
Each week, we will bring you sights and sounds from our studio as guests sit in the chair to have a conversation with Tavis.
Our inaugural “Seen and Heard” is a special one, as it includes an image and quote from Tavis’ 2007 conversation with soul singer Etta James, who recently passed away in Los Angeles.
Check out images of and quotes from Sean Penn, Etta James, Terrence Howard, Kathleen Turner and Seal.
