The hot list
Singer-songwriter and master R&B crooner John Legend will be performing in Honolulu for the first time this weekend.
Originally scheduled for a one-night-only show, a second show was added when tickets to the first show were selling quicker than you could sing your best karaoke version of "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing."
Currently on a massive international tour, Legend also performed on Maui last night. And as if his reputation for being an impossibly flawless performer isn't enough to make his O'ahu engagement a must-attend affair, Legend also has a great big philanthropic heart. The six-time Grammy Award winner donates a portion of the ticket sales to his charity Show Me Campaign, which helps improve living conditions in underdeveloped African villages by providing them with mosquito nets and clean water sources.
