Legendary R&B singer and former front man of The Gap Band, Charlie Wilson, made a stop on his Forever Charlie Tour at Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta, where he performed for a sold-out crowd of fans of all ages. Wilson performed his hits, including “There Goes My Baby”, for the Atlanta crowd and kept the energy flowing with a cadre of backup dancers and phenomenal musicians. Wilson’s smooth and strong vocals were reminiscent of his days with The Gap Band and his stage presence was electric and invigorating.
Opening for Wilson was Detroit native KEM, who brought the ladies in the audience to their feet as he crooned his hits. The Grammy-nominated singer faced past battles with homelessness and addiction, but overcame both when he found his spirituality. Becoming a stronger person, that strength translates to the stage as he performs a solid show with a voice that drips with honey.
These performers bring back memories of the golden age of R&B when both the music and the message were upbeat and positive. The Forever Charlie Tour continues through the end of March and I would suggest you get your tickets now!
