Brian McKnight, Elton John, Don Henley, Tim McGraw, Dennis Miller, and Ray Romano are scheduled to take part in Andre Agassi’s sixth Grand Slam For Children at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The Grand Slam For Children benefits the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization that assists at-risk youth in Las Vegas, Agassi’s hometown.

McKnight will perform songs from his new album Superhero at the event. McKnight recently told LAUNCH that while working on the album, he tried to write songs that were easy to sing: “I don’t really put that much merit on singing. I really don’t, because I look at it this way: When I listen to the radio and I hear the people that are on the radio, I say to myself, ‘If that’s what the general public thinks of singing, then obviously it must not be about singing. It must be about the song.’ So, if I can write a song that anybody can sing, then I’ve done a good thing.”

Since 1994, Agassi’s Grand Slam benefits have raised more than $14 million for charity.
