After a successful run in 2015, Brandy will be making her return to Broadway’s “Chicago.” The Grammy Award winner will be reprising her role as Roxie Hart for 17 upcoming shows.
The songstress made her way to a press event in NYC leading up to her encore performance, set to kick off today (August 17th).
She stopped by the "TODAY" show to dish on her reurn to the big stage.
Fans who didn’t get to see Brandy lucked ip. She KILLED it the first time. But don't wait too late to go see her. Her last performance is on August 31st.
Break a leg, Brandy!
Fun in the sun!
Chicago Bulls player Dwyane Wade was due for a fun day at the beach, so he and his friend trekked it to Malibu to catch some waves.
On the east coast...
Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant was celebrated by his hometown after a successful NBA season. The NB Finals MVP carried the Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy during a parade in Seat Pleasant, MD that was thrown just for him, dubbed “Kevin Durant Day.” Fans lined the streets to see their hometown hero with his championship trophy.

Speaking of winning the championship…
You won’t see Kevin Durant set foot in the White House anytime soon, even though the Warriors won the NBA title this year. Trump hasn’t extended a formal invitation for the team to visit the White House (which is a tradition), but if he does, Kevin will not be attending.
“Nah, I won’t do that,” the 28-year-old baller told ESPN’s Chris Haynes. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”
None of us do, Kev. None of us do.
Well this is an awkward pair...or is it?
"Power” star Omari Hardwick linked up with singer Kelis in the studio recently. If you didn’t know, Omari fancies himself an artist first, so it’s actually no surprise he’s in the studio. Kelis shared the shot and captioned, “With one of my favorite people @omarihardwickofficial last night in the studio , storytelling .... To be continued #creative #music #eastcoast #originalart #goodtimes #studio”
Hmm…we’re interested to see what comes of this collaboration.
Omari has a new thriller/crime film coming to theaters soon, so he’s on the promo trail. The YBF actor hit the red carpet at the Shot Caller L.A. premiere held at The Theatre at Ace Hotel.
The film will follow a newly released prison gangster who's forced by the leaders of his gang to orchestrate a major crime with a brutal rival gang on the streets of Southern California.
It's set to hit theaters tomorrow, August 18th.
Peep the trailer below:
