R&B singer John Legend will perform an in-flight concert to a handful of lucky contest winners to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Grammy Awards next month (Feb08). Legend will play a 30-minute set at 30,000 feet aboard a Delta Air Lines plane traveling from New York to Los Angeles on Feb. 7. His audience will be the 50 to 60 people who win a series of sweepstakes on the websites of participating CBS stations and affiliates, reports Billboard. “I look forward to performing this unique concert in the skies with my biggest fans,â says Legend. “It’s certainly something I’ve never done before, so if you want to join me for a free ride to the Grammy Awards, enter the contest. Let’s get lifted!” The 2008 Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on Feb. 10 in Los Angeles. Organizers have promised the event will go ahead, despite the threat of protest from striking writers.
