About this show

As one of the most distinguished voices in R&B music, Charlie Wilson needs no introduction. The Tulsa, Oklahoma native and former lead singer of the funkadelic brotherly trio, the GAP Band, is touring in support of his second solo album entitled Uncle Charlie. Released in February of 2009 it debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Chart and #2 on the Billboard Hot 200. This album debut was a career high for Wilson, charting higher than any of his previous projects, including the music he recorded with the GAP Band. 2009 was a stellar year for Wilson. He received two 2010 Grammy Award nominations for Best Album (Uncle Charlie) and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for "There Goes My Baby," and a 2010 NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Male Artist. In addition, Billboard Magazine has named Charlie the #1 Urban Adult Contemporary Artist of 2009 and "There Goes My Baby" the #1 Urban Adult Contemporary Single of 2009. Wilson also received the 2009 Soul Train Icon Award in November.
