Chico DeBarge

Sunday, July 26, 2009
From 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Central Park SummerStage  

After a four-year hiatus from making records, Ginuwine is back in the saddle with the release of his new album A Man’s Thoughts. Ginuwine first emerged on the music scene in 1996 with the multi-platinum release of The Bachelor which paired his silky smooth vocals with Timbaland’s jagged, hyperkinetic beats, creating a fresh new R&B sound. Rolling Stone claims, “As a showman, performer, and personality, Ginuwine’s the real thing – he’s got that high-but-husky voice and impassioned delivery of an old-school love man…” R& B singer Joe has had a remarkable career, having sold over eleven million albums worldwide. The son of two preachers, Joe grew up in the church playing guitar and eventually directing the choir. Citing early influences such as gospel stars Winans, Commissioned, and Vanessa Bell Armstorng, Joe grew to love secular styles of music too, including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bobby Brown, and Keith Sweat. In 2000 Joe released his break-out, multi-platinum album My Name is Joe forever securing his place among the finest in R&B history.

Sultry soul crooner Chico DeBarge will make a return to music with the forthcoming release of his new album Addiction. Earning his musical chops as a member of the famed Motown group, Switch and DeBarge, the singer broke out on his own in 1986, with the release of his debut solo album.

Presented in association with WBLS 35th Anniversary and Globe Star Media.

A full afternoon of R&B legends. Presented in association Kedar Entertainment & Globe Star Media.

    Thanks Dro for posting this event…I would have never found out about this concert if it wasn’t for NYCetwits!

    Despite the line that must have been 1/4 mile long….it was worth the 50 min wait. We found a spot close to the stage and set up our picnic blanket and food. The music was dope…smooth R&B and classic hits courtesy of the DJ. Chico came out first, followed by Ginuwine who killed it despite his hoarse voice. Joe ended the concert w. his tracks of making love music =p

    Overall great experience and looking forward to the next line-up of artists. Keep us posted senior Andro!
