Hart last performed in Alabama at Legacy Arena at the BJCC in Birmingham in November 2022. Hart also played the Mark C. Smith Concert Hall at Von Braun Center in February 2022. He also gifted Decatur resident Ethan LyBrand with a “Magic Bumblebee Wheelchair,” named for the child’s favorite character in the “Transformers” action film franchise. LyBrand, a Muscular Dystrophy Association national ambassador, and that wheelchair were later featured in a Verizon ad during the Academy Awards in 2021.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Hart has become a Hollywood superstar, with films grossing more than $4 billion. His films include “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Ride Along,” “Get Hard,” “Central Intelligence” and “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.”
