Last night, Earvin "Magic" Johnson launched a new 24-hour cable network called ASPiRE.

The network will target African-American audiences and aims to shine a light on the positive contributions African-Americans have made to American culture. It will be broadly distributed by Comcast across the country.

To celebrate with Magic and Comcast we stopped by the private star-studded kickoff party last night at legendary Cipriani Dolci in New York City to ask partygoers what they aspired and aspire to be. See what Magic and folks like Carmelo Anthony, Russell Simmons, Al Roker, Miss Universe, Lynn Whitfield and had to say.
