Patti LaBelle, Fantasia to headline African American Festival

She turns 70 later this month, but that's not slowing down R&B veteran Patti LaBelle.

She, along with "American Idol" Season 3 winner Fantasia, will headline this year's African American Festival, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and event producer Shelonda Stokes announced this morning at City Hall.

The free, two-day event takes place in Lots B and C of M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, July 6 from noon-10 p.m. and Sunday, July 7 from noon-9 p.m.

More performers will be announced closer to the festival date, according to assistant producer Nika Watkins.
