'American Idol' winner to give Memorial Day show in Myrtle Beach
An "American Idol" winner will perform in Myrtle Beach during Memorial Day weekend as part of a series of events to honor veterans.
Jordin Sparks, winner of the sixth season of "American Idol", will headline a May 29 concert that will also include Disney channel musicians Mitchel Musso, Jasmine Richards and Savannah Outen. The concerts will take place on the former site of Myrtle Square mall.
"If you're 13 years of age or younger, there's no place you'd rather be," Brant Branham, chairman of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce's board of directors, said when announcing the event Monday.
Related events for Memorial Day include a parade down Ocean Boulevard and fireworks. All events will be free.
