Charlie Wilson with special guest Lalah Hathaway
July 20 @ 7:30 pm$49 – $79
Some people might say that after notching ten No. 1 singles, 13 Grammy Award nominations, a New York Times best-selling memoir and ongoing sold-out, coast-to-coast arena tours, Charlie Wilson has proven his point… and he isn’t planning to slow down anytime soon.
“I’ve been in this game for many years,” reflects the Gap Band founder and solo icon. “I’ve had some big hit records and sold a lot of records. But I need to still show people that I’m in it. It’s championship time.”
Wilson underscores that declaration with his latest album, In It to Win It (P Music Group/RCA, Feb. 17 2017) which includes a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track “Made For Love,” his enchanting duet with Lalah Hathaway. In 2018 Charlie was also nominated for three 2018 NAACP Image Awards, Outstanding Male Artist, Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration and Outstanding Album.
Nominated for three Grammys in 2019 including Best R&B album; a recipient of 5 Grammy awards, with wins as Artist and Producer for 2017’s Best R&B Album Lalah Hathaway Live; performer of the no.1 Urban AC song of 2016, “Angel”; and vocalizer of the viral-making ‘chord’… Lalah Hathaway’s track record speaks for itself. Her list of collaborators have included such illustrious talents as Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Her performance history, meanwhile, has seen invitations to the stage from legends including Prince, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Anita Baker. Her Grammy-nominated album honestly is out now with guest appearances from Redman, Lecrae, Robert Glasper and more. Accompanied by a short film of the same title, honestly is a reflection piece on resistance and joy, journeying us through the mind of little lalah.
