The feted American R&B performer Kenny Lattimore is coming to South Africa to perform at the second Women’s Day SOUL REVIVAL at Morula Casino outside Pretoria, on 9 August 2013.
Lattimore’s debut album was released in 1996, earning him two Top 20 hits with Never Too Busy and the Grammy-nominated perennial hit For You. The enormous success of the album earned Lattimore an award for Best New Artist at the NAACP Image Awards in 1997, eventually also achieving gold sales status for him.
The romantic soul vocalist music’s has been described as ‘singing to the hearts of women and to the minds of men to encourage love’. He was hailed by The New York Times as a “modern soul man” on stage and the audience can expect to hear all his hits against the backdrop of a dramatic stage show.
Lattimore achieved further acclaim from a duet with his ex-wife, Chante Moore, from their 2003 album entitled Things That Lovers Do. Following the success of the track, Kenny released another album of duets with Moore, a double CD of gospel and R&B love songs entitled Uncovered/Covered. He since founded his own record company, Sincere Soul Records in 2012, and in conjunction with EMI Records is expected to release his newest album entitled Back 2 Cool in 2013.
African Queen, Thandiswa Mazwai will join Lattimore on stage. Her singing career began with pioneering Kwaito Band, Bongo Maffin. Her solo debut album was released in 2004 achieving double platinum sales and a Kora Award for Best African Female. Further accolades followed with four SAMA awards including Best Album. Recently, last year she sang a duet with Paul Simon in Hyde Park, London at his Graceland 25th Anniversary concert.
The rest of the line-up includes Berita, the Eastern Cape’s new pop queen, chart topping BET nominee Donald, as well as the dynamic up and coming Moneoa.
All in all the Soul Revival at Morula promises a great evening’s entertainment.
Book early for a great Women’s Day Soul Revival on Friday 9 August 2013. Gates open at 15h00.
