Divine Brown, Kreesha Turner to open for Backstreet Boys
Canadian R&B artists Divine Brown and Kreesha Turner have been tapped to open for the Backstreet Boys during their tour of Canada beginning in November.
The Backstreet Boys, with four remaining members — Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and A.J McLean — plan a Canadian tour starting Nov. 4 in Quebec City.
Brown, who released her second album The Love Chronicles earlier this year, began her career on the Toronto club circuit, captivating audiences with her huge vocal range.
The Toronto-based soul singer writes her own songs, including Lay It on the Line and Next Thing.
Edmonton-born Turner, daughter of a Canadian father and a Jamaican mother, discovered her musical roots at 15 when her mother sent her to Jamaica for a year.
She stars in a cover shoot of Fashion magazine for November and her songs have been played on shows such as Gossip Girl, Entourage, The Hills and Desperate Housewives.
She is touring in support of her new album, Passion, which contains the single, Don't Call Me Baby.
The Backstreet Boys announced Brown and Turner as their opening acts on Wednesday. They will appear in Chicoutimi and Sherbrooke, Que., London and Hamilton, Ont., Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Grande Prairie, Alta., and Prince George and Kamloops, B.C.
