Sultry R&B singer Toni Braxton, discovered by L.A. Reid and Babyface Edmonds, is getting a boost for her career through the reality show "Braxton Family Values." For this "WVON Impact 50" performance, however, the multiple Grammy winner's music takes center stage.
Why go: "WVON Impact 50" celebrates the Chicago black-owned-and-operated radio station's anniversary with actress Tracee Ellis Ross hosting, a performance by poet Malik Yusef, the King High School marching band and more.
Reconsider: You'll pass if there's no Tamar drama "dot com."
7 p.m. Saturday at The Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St.; $53-$503; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
