Brandy, not CeeLo Green, to headline city fundraiser to fight homelessness

A Baltimore fundraiser has had to say “forget you” to CeeLo Green and instead is welcoming singer Brandy as its performer.

The “Journey Home: An Evening of Unexpected Delights” concert takes place Oct. 20 at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric and is hosted by Mayor Catherine Pugh.

Grammy award-winner Brandy tweeted Tuesday that she would be performing at the concert. In 2014, she headlined the city’s African American Festival.

The mayor’s office previously said Green would perform at the “Journey Home” concert. A spokesman for Mayor Catherine Pugh said the city and Green were unable to agree on a contract.

Ticket prices range from $49 to $79. Proceeds will go toward the organization’s efforts to fight homelessness in Baltimore.
