Start practicing those “Every Little Step” dance moves – Bobby Brown is coming to town.
The R&B veteran will headline Centennial Olympic Park’s annual Fourth of July celebration, which kicks off at 7 p.m. on the holiday.
Brown will be joined on the lineup by former Sounds of Blackness lead singer Ann Nesby, CeCe Peniston (of “Finally” fame) and Sugarland’s Kristian Bush. Other musicians slated to perform include JFly and Friends, Algebra Blessett, Chelsea Shag, Darlene McCoy and Jordan Bolch.
The free event will air on WSB-TV, with station anchor Jovita Moore and sports anchor Zach Klein hosting. KISS 104.1-FM’s Sasha the Diva will be on-stage to host the crowd.
Gates at Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta will open at 6 p.m. This year, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which owns and operates the 21-acre park, partnered with Lenox Square to combine their popular fireworks shows.
