Soul legend James Brown is negotiating a television tribute to his
work, according to a report from the Associated Press. The TV project is
said to be an alternative to Brown's annual birthday bash. The turnouts at the
bashes have declined in recent years, making the events cost-prohibitive. The
singer has canceled this year's b-day concert, slated for May 7 in Augusta, Ga.,
as well as plans for another event in Las Vegas.
