CHARLIE WILSON


BIO: Timeless. It’s something every artist wants to be, but few earn the distinction. Charlie Wilson’s name is on that short list. From his breakout as a member of the Gap Band (“You Dropped A Bomb On Me,” “Outstanding”) in the ‘80s to his revered solo recordings (2005’s certified gold Charlie, Last Name Wilson, 2009’s Grammy nominated Uncle Charlie, and his 2010 release Just Charlie), Wilson has sold millions of albums. He has also inspired a throng of artists who have modeled their vocal styling after his (most notably Aaron Hall and R. Kelly) while cementing his status as a music icon with accolades from Billboard and BET, among a host of others. His newly released single, “My Love Is All I Have” is currently available on iTunes and his upcoming, highly anticipated CD Love, Charlie is due for release in February, 2013. Wilson was recently honored with two 2012 Grammy nominations for his chart-topping single, “You Are,” for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance. “You Are” was the first single from Wilson’s critically-acclaimed CD, Just Charlie and dominated Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary chart remaining at #1 for 13 consecutive weeks. In 2010, Wilson also received two Grammy nominations for Best R&B Album, Uncle Charlie, and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his hit single, “There Goes My Baby.” Although Wilson struggled with alcohol and drug addiction that consumed him once The Gap Band broke up, his music resonated with generations of musicians and rappers, including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, R. Kelly, Jamie Foxx, T-Pain and Justin Timberlake, many of whom clamored to collaborate with him and achieve the level of artistic quality Wilson has maintained. He is proud to share with his fans around the world that he has been clean and sober for 18 years. Wilson continues to tour the world bringing his fans the ultimate concert performance combining his current chart-toppers and GAP Band hits. Famed talk show host, Steve Harvey raves “What I saw at The Hoodies was the greatest single living performer of legendary status of our time. His voice is amazing and his energy and the level of intensity that he has is unbelievable.” Beyond music, Wilson remains committed to promoting awareness and educating his community about prostate cancer. As a survivor of the disease that afflicts one in six American men –and one in three African American men – Wilson in 2008 teamed up with the Prostate Cancer Foundation. In April, 2012, he announced teaming up with Janssen Biotech to launch their Making Awareness A Priority (M.A.P.) program which brings together leading voices in advocacy and health education through live events in select cities across the country. With music and his commitment to educate people about prostate cancer, Wilson has been able to sustain the passion and drive that have been hallmarks of his legendary career. “I’m still living this dream,” Wilson says. “I still love to perform and I’m still having fun. I’m not there just to pick up the check. It’s about the passion and the respect that I have for the game. It keeps me going.”
