Singer, actor, and sure-footed dancer Chris Brown continues his stratospheric rise in popularity, gathering a star-studded legion of hip-hop heroes and R & B impresarios for The F.A.M.E. Tour. A consummate entertainer known for his sultry voice and charismatic tonsils, Chris Brown has beguiled audiences since the age of 16 with his notable talents and is currently traversing the country’s party-starved terrain while his latest hit record F.A.M.E. is still hot off the griddle. Fortifying the evening of soul, Destiny’s Child prodigy Kelly Rowland graces the tour with her Grammy-winning windpipe, brewing up heartbreaking ballads and catchy cad-shaming lyrics in support of her new album, Here I Am. With a voice as smooth as a baby’s bowling ball, rhymeappotamus T-Pain joins the mix, auto-tuning celebratory rhymes and declarative ditties. Topping off the tank of heavy-hitters, rhyme-juggler and mixtape maven TYGA beelines outta Compton with vocal jabs that effortlessly slalom through mountains of swagger.
