Oakland Teen Band PopLyfe Makes the Finals on America's Got Talent



A famous Oakland R&B dynasty just reestablished itself. The band PopLyfe, which includes two children of Toni Tony Toné frontman D'Wayne Wiggins, two children of local jazz drummer Ranzel Merritt, and 14-year-old singer Kehlani Parrish, announced that it just made the finals on NBC's America's Got Talent. And, according to a flyer posted on an East Bay Express news rack, the band needs some help from its hometown.
