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. He’s back and better than ever!
“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, which includes a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track “Made For Love,” his enchanting duet with Lalah Hathaway. The set boasts two number one singles which hit two different Billboard charts in April 2018. “Chills” was #1 on the Adult R&B Songs chart and “I’m Blessed” ft. T.I. was #1 on the Hot Gospel Songs. This is the first time an artist has had two different #1 songs on these charts at the same time.
In 2018, Charlie was also nominated for three 2018 NAACP Image Awards, Outstanding Male Artist, Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration and Outstanding Album. “I’m Blessed” was also nominated for a 2018 Billboard Top Gospel song.
He is continuing to tour with dates in the U.S. and will perform at Verizon Arena with special guest Joe on Saturday, August 17! Tickets start at $59.50 and are available online at https://www1.ticketmaster.com, by calling 501-975-9000, or at Verizon Arena. Don’t miss out on a memorable night with Charlie Wilson!
