It’s all about the legends this weekend, and we don’t mean John. Living legend Gladys Knight gets her just due with a reality TV show, The Knight Life With Gladys on The Oprah Winfrey Network that premieres this Saturday. Watch the legend, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and wife try to juggle her busy schedule while having a personal life. J. Anthony Brown is a also a living legend (but maybe just in his own mind) and the good folks of Baton Rouge can check him out on Friday night live on stage. Jill Scott, on the way to legend status, checks into AC this weekend and for all the rest of the post Christmas, pre-New Year’s happenings, keep reading. Here’s hoping you’re having a great holiday season.
