Gap Band founder and solo icon, Charlie Wilson, continues to sell-out venues across the country and will bring his latest tour to the H-E-B Center on Saturday, February 8th.
Wilson has garnered ten No. 1 singles, 13 Grammy Award nominations, a New York Times best-selling memoir, plus numerous awards and accolades. His latest release, In It To Win It (P Music Group/RCA, Feb. 17, 2017) includes a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track “Made For Love,” his enchanting duet with Lalah Hathaway. In 2018 Charlie was also nominated for three 2018 NAACP Image Awards, Outstanding Male Artist, Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration, and Outstanding Album.
“I’ve been in this game for many years,” reflects Wilson. “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 continues his reign as “Uncle Charlie,” the lovable nickname originally given to him by Snoop Dogg, by being one of the most highly sought-after adult entertainers for today’s top Hip-Hop and Pop artists. In 2018 he stepped in as a replacement for Cardi B opening for Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic World Tour Finale performing for thousands of fans in Minneapolis, Detroit, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Mars’ hometown, Honolulu, which made history selling out three nights at Aloha Stadium. The experience is one Wilson will never forget.
