Details of Heritage Music Festival and the Ticket Luck value
Anthony Hamilton, 'Babyface' and Grammy award-winning Chrisette Michele all in one night; this is definitely not an event to pass over. The time has rolled around yet again for the 44th Annual Summer Celebration, part of the Indiana Black Expo. Heritage Music Festival tickets are available for all those wishing to go and experience this great night.
The Indiana Black Expo was founded in 1970, after the Civil Rights Movement, and has worked ceaselessly to promote and exhibit African-American ideas over the years. This summer's Expo will span over ten days – July 10 to 20 – and the Heritage Music Festival for two days. On July 19, concert-goers get a chance to see a fantastic line-up of Anthony Hamilton, Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds and the fabulous Chrisette Michele. They will be performing at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
The event itself is a celebration of the African-American community and promotes positivity and fresh ideas for the development of Indiana and the community. These solo recording artists have displayed devotion and dedication throughout their careers. Their presence here is symbolic of their journey and a source of inspiration, along with being quality entertainment.
Kenny Edmonds has ten Grammys, eleven solo albums, more than a hundred Top 10 R&B and Pop hits and 42 R&B number one hits to his credit. He is also hailed as a revolutionary label owner and an iconic personality. He has worked with some of the best people in the industry all through his career like L.A. Reid, Paula Abdul, TLC, Usher and the late-great Whitney Houston. TLC and Usher were two of the earliest artists signed to the recording label that Edmonds and L.A. Reid found together in 1989. TLC's first two albums sold more than fifteen million copies in the States, along with earning him a Grammy award. As time went on, Edmonds' list of people he collaborated with became gradually more A-list with the likes of Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Phil Collins, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion and Eric Clapton among others joining it. He has even worked with the new pop sensation – Ariana Grande.
He released an album with Toni Braxton in 2014 titled Love, Marriage and Divorce. He shows no signs of slowing down and is sure to put up an amazing performance at the Heritage Music Festival. And what's more, he is an Indiana native.
Anthony Hamilton is no less of an impressive personality. He entered the mainstream music scene with his Grammy nomination in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category, for 'Po' Folks' in 2002. His 2003 studio album Comin' From Where I Come From, which was platinum-selling, gave his popularity a serious boost in 2003. The single 'Charlene' from this album hit number three on the US R&B chart, and number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since then he has worked with Kanye West, Nelly and 2Pac. Most recently, he was on the soundtrack of the Academy Award-winning, Quentin Tarantino blockbuster Django Unchained.
Hamilton has five Grammy nominations to his credit and has won the Grammy for Best Traditional R&B performance for 'You've Got the Love I Need' which he sang with Al Green in 2009. He also won two Vibe Music Awards in 2004 for Best Collaboration and the Vibe Next Award. He is hyped up nowadays because of his collaboration with Jill Scott in 'So in Love', which has now spent a whopping eighteen weeks on the number one spot on the Billboard's Urban Adult Contemporary chart, and his own Babyface-produced track 'Pray For Me' has also achieved mass success.
If all of this isn't enough for anyone, add Chrisette Michele to the mix and you have a surefire winner of a night, right there. Michele is signed to Motown Records which has a track-record as a label on its own. She has released four studio albums up till now. Her 2009 release Epiphany was number one on the Billboard 200, and Let Freedom Reign (2010) debuted at number twenty-five on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Her latest album Better was released on June 11, 2014 and has already been nominated for the 2014 Grammy Awards in the Best R&B Album category.
