He Has Won Countless Awards for His Music— Now, See Charlie Wilson Live

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. But Charlie isn’t planning to slow down anytime soon. He’s back and better than ever! Check him out this Friday when he performs live at Durham Performing Arts Center!

Charlie 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. He underscores that declaration with his latest album, In It to Win It (2017).

The album includes a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track “Made For Love,” his enchanting duet with Lalah Hathaway. Coinciding with the release of In It To Win It, Wilson’s national U.S. tour has sold out arenas around the country.

Wilson is also a record producer and the former lead vocalist of the Gap Band. As a solo artist he has been nominated for thirteen Grammy awards and ten NAACP Image Awards (including two wins), received a 2009 Soul Train Icon Award, and was a recipient of a BMI Icon Award in 2005. In 2009, he was named Billboard magazine's No. 1 Adult R&B Artist, and his song "There Goes My Baby" was named the No. 1 Urban Adult Song for 2009 in Billboard Magazine. On June 30, 2013, BET honored Wilson with a Lifetime Achievement Award that was presented to him by Justin Timberlake.
