Chris Brown

Saturday, December 24; The Arena (formerly the Limelight), 9973 Lewis and Clark Boulevard, North St. Louis County

When your mother tells you singing would bring better success with the ladies than playing basketball, you'd better take heed. In the case of new R&B sensation Chris Brown, a one-time point-guard on the varsity high school team in his hometown of Tappahannock, Virginia (population: 2,000), listening to his mom's career-steering advice has paid immediate dividends. The sixteen-year-old crooner snagged a record deal with Jive, has a growing presence on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Chart (the hit "Run It" reached No. 1) and is embarking on a brief US tour to promote the single — thus becoming the object of affection for countless teenage girls around the country.
