To say that Charlie Wilson is an “Icon,” does not truly describe the musical powerhouse whose vocal prowess began as founding member and lead singer of the legendary GAP Band (“You Dropped the Bomb on Me,” “Outstanding,” “Party Train,” and “Burn Rubber on Me.”)

As a solo artist Wilson has topped the R&B charts with 13 number one singles, 13 GRAMMY® nominations, a New York Times and Washington Post best-selling memoir, “I Am Charlie Wilson,” a BET Lifetime Achievement Award, a Soul Train Icon Award, a Soul Train Certified Soul Award, and a NAACP Music Makes a Difference Award. He was also honored with a star on the Black Music & Entertainment Walk Of Fame in 2022 and will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2024.

Wilson kicked off 2022 on the critically acclaimed The Culture Tour with New Edition and Jodeci. He has previously sold out two of his own headlining arena tours- Forever Charlie (2015), In It To Win It (2017) – and toured with Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic tour.

He was twice named Billboard’s Top Adult Male R&B Artist (2009, 2020) and named Billboard’s Top Adult R&B Male Artist with the most #1s in three decades. Wilson was honored this year with a star on the Black Music & Entertainment Walk Of Fame and will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2024.

Known to most as “Uncle Charlie,” the lovable nickname given by Snoop Dogg, continues to beone of the most sought-after voices in music today. He has collaborated with many chart-topping artists including Bruno Mars, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Tyler The Creator and Nas, to name a few.

In the years between the GAP Band and his solo success, Wilson survived drug and alcohol addiction, homelessness and prostate cancer. Sober now for 28 years, the singer says, “I wouldn’t have believed I’d be where I am right now. That’s why I shout every night because I thank God for allowing me to be here.”



Chaka Khan is one of the world’s most gifted and celebrated music icons. A  singer,  songwriter,  actor,  author,  philanthropist,  entrepreneur  and  activist, Chaka has influenced generations of music creators during her four decades as an artist. A ten-time GRAMMY​® Award winner, she has the rare  ability  to  sing  in  a  number  of  musical  genres,  including  R&B,  pop,  rock, gospel, country, world music and classical. She is revered by millions of  fans  as  well  as  her  peers  for  her  timeless,  unmatched vocal style and  image. The late, great Miles Davis noted that Chaka “sings like my horn.” And  none  other  than  the  Queen  of  Soul,  Aretha  Franklin,  has  said  that  Chaka “is a one-of-a-kind, premier vocalist.”

During her legendary career, Chaka has released 22 albums and racked up ten Number One songs on the Billboard charts, seven RIAA-certified gold singles  and  ten  RIA-certified  gold  and  platinum  albums.  Chaka’s  recordings have resulted in more than 2,000 catalog song placements.

“I  am  so  humbled  by  the  love,  support  and  gracious  spirit  of  my  fans  worldwide and the continuous support my peers have shown over the years,” says Chaka. “Throughout my career, I have been through the fire a few times over and I’m still here as a living testament to God’s love and  grace.”

Still at the height of her astounding vocal powers, Chaka Khan is creating new projects and earning new honors. Her latest single “Like Sugar” has earned  high  marks  from  tastemakers;  the  track  is  from  her  brand-new  album-length project ​Hello Happiness​, due in the first quarter of 2019. In addition,  Chaka  is  making  history  once  again,  as  she  has  been  named  Grand Marshal of the 2019 Tournament of Roses Parade, making her not only the first African American Grand Marshal in the traditional New Year’s Day celebration’s 130-year history, but the first Grand Marshal to perform during the parade.
