Grammy Award-winning R&B and soul artist Monica will perform this weekend at Kodak Center for Performing Arts in the Live+Love+Laugh concert series. Joining her will be three comedians: Anthony Jimenez, also known as Imagine, who has been featured on Latino Laughter and Comedy Central; Georgia-native Mope Williams, who has been featured on BET's "Comicview"; and New York City-based Kenny Woo.
Monica, a Georgia native born in 1980, became the youngest artist ever to have two consecutive chart-topping hits on the Billboard Top R&B Singles chart in 1995. She's been nominated for four Grammys, and won for Best R&B Performance by Duo or Group in 1999. Most recently, she became known as the woman who revived soul music when she released her latest album in 2015, fittingly titled "Code Red."
Live+Love+Laugh will take place at the Kodak Center for Performing Arts (200 West Ridge Road) on Saturday, July 8. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; show starts at 7:30. There may be a $5 charge for parking. Tickets can be purchased at Xquisite Boutique (171 Monroe Avenue) or online at kodackcenter.org/shows. For more information, call 254-0073.
