The original honorary Mayor of Atlanta Arnell Star passed away of complications from a stroke on Tuesday.
Starr was a local video jock, best known for his popular video music show American Music Makers where he showcased up-and-coming Atlanta talent as well as nationally known artists in the 1990s.
Starr is credited with breaking local artists whose records weren’t in heavy rotation on radio shows or music video channels.
Funeral services for Starr will be held this Saturday in Alabama.
