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. Watch the show tonight at 9 p.m. and, if you think PopLyfe is a worthy contender for the $1 million grand prize, text your vote in to the 800 number provided during their performance. In the meantime, check out YouTube videos of PopLyfe's four previous appearances on national TV.
