Article Title: Musical R & B Legend Charlie Wilson To Appear at Municipal Auditorium on October 19 at 8:00 pm
Article: From the start of his career, Charlie Wilson, affectionately known as “Uncle Charlie,” and his brothers, Robert and Ronnie, helped define and popularize an upbeat form of funk music that was infectious and lasting with their group The Gap Band. Their catalog consisted of memorable hits like “Outstanding”, "Party Train", "Yearning for Your Love", "Burn Rubber on Me", “You Dropped a Bomb on Me”, and “Oops Upside Your Head” from 15 albums throughout their career. After the group’s retirement, Charlie embarked upon a solo career and released his first hit with Jive Records entitled Charlie, Last Name Wilson, which debuted in the fall of 2005. Since then Charlie has consistently topped the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary chart with singles from his follow up albums through P Music/Jive Records. His 2009 CD, Uncle Charlie, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 200 and #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart and received two 2010 Grammy nominations, Best R&B Album and Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male for "There Goes My Baby.”
  In December 2010, Just Charlie, was released and spawned the hit single “You Are" which held the #1 spot on the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary chart for 13 weeks as well as 15 weeks consecutively on the Mediabase chart. The song earned two 2012 Grammy nominations, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song giving Wilson, his wife Mahin, and their fellow songwriters Dennis Bettis, Carl M. Days Jr. and Wirlie Morris (who co-produced the track with Wilson) their first nomination as songwriters together.
  R & B singer, songwriter, producer and the former lead vocalist of the Gap Band, Charlie Wilson, will give a dynamic, showstopping performance at the Municipal Auditorium along with opening act, El DeBarge on October 19.
