BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Birmingham's Steel City Jazz Festival has been canceled this year, but organizers say the event will be back in 2019.
The festival, set for June 1-2, had planned to change its location in 2018, moving from Linn Park to Legion Field. According to a press release from founder Cedric Allen, the festival's fans didn't like the change.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ladies are taking over the stages at the Essence Festival.
Mary J. Blige, who's promoting her recently released "Strength of a Woman" project, is the curator for Saturday night's show inside the Superdome, where every performer will be a woman.
In addition to Blige, scheduled acts include Chaka Khan, Jill Scott, Jazmine Sullivan, Monica and Ari Lennox on the main stage. Ebanks says Blige has called on all of her relationships to make the night special.
