(AllHipHop Alternatives) For the love of R&B! R&B is alive and well! If you still love real vocals, raw emotion, live instrumentation, and love, you must go see one of the torchbearers of real R&B, Charlie Wilson, out on tour!
Charlie Wilson’s ‘In It To Win It Tour’ is the gift of real soulful R&B music and real sangin’. The tour features Johnny Gill as well as Fantasia, and it’s worth every single dime of your money! Everyone of the acts brought the house down, and Wilson was sure to close out the night with an electrifying energy-filled performance!
Uncle Charlie showed fans once again that he is a true performer. The music industry’s famous uncle is 64, but you wouldn’t know it from the way he shows up and shows out every time he hits any stage. Wilson moved and grooved with effortless and endless energy and emotion.
Wilson will certainly take you to the dance floor, the bedroom, and to church. His captivating performance even includes him hitting the stage with his dancers to perform in suits embellished with LED lights. Wilson’s energy level continues to have fans in awe. 64 is the new 20.
When I think of Charlie Wilson I think of longevity, and showmanship.
It’s not only Charlie’s signature voice or dance moves that resonate with the crowd, but it’s his transparency that also touches the heart of his fans. Charlie is always open about how God brought him through obstacles such as substance abuse, poor management, poverty, and more.
Wilson moved and grooved through not only his own personal classics and hit features, but also that of his former group, The Gap Band. Everyone in the Microsoft Theater stood to their feet to sing “Outstanding”, “Yearning For Your Love”, on to “Charlie, Last Name Wilson”, and Snoop Dogg’s “Beautiful” [which he’s featured on], as well as his new hits off of his latest album, ‘In It To Win It’.
Johnny Gill reminded us why he got to become a member of the legendary R&B group New Edition, and he also reminded us how much we loved his hit single “My, My, My” as well as LSG’s “My Body”.
Fantasia brought down the house with her unique soul, and impressive catalog of classic and hits such as “Free Yourself,” “Truth Is”, “Without Me” etc. She even took time out to tribute the late, great James Brown as well as took us to church with her rendition of “Total Praise.”
If you love real timeless and classic music, real R&B, you must go see Wilson, Gill, and Fantasia on the ‘In It To Win It’ tour when it hits your city!
