Howard Hewett
Please Join my Exclusive Members-Only Page and Meet Me Live. Howard Hewett (born October 1, in Akron, Ohio) is an American R&B and gospel singer and former lead vocalist of the R&B group Shalamar. Howard Hewett is one of the most gifted vocalists in the Post-Marvin Gaye era of pop R&B. He started singing as a child fronting his older sisters in the Hewett Singers. The group toured the gospel circuit. As a teen, Hewett sharpened his crooner skills in a funk band called Lyfe. In 1976, Hewett moved to Los Angeles and formed a group put together by the owners of the historic Maverick’s Flat, called Beverly Hills. Hewett got his mainstream break as the male vocal lead in Shalamar, a centerpiece of Dick Griffey's SOLAR (Sound of Los Angeles Records) label. His tenor voice mixed beautifully with the bright vocals of Jody Watley, the dancing skills of Jeffery Daniels and the writing and production of Leon Sylvers III. The group gave the world feel-good dance favorites The Second Time Around and A Night to Remember, the baby-making classic For the Lover in You, as well as a number of beautiful B-side ballads like You Can Count On Me and Somewhere There’s a Love. When Watley and Daniels left the group in 1983, Hewett continued to lead Mickey Free and Delisa Davis in the reconstituted Shalamar. This version of the group was best known for soundtrack contributions on Footloose and Beverly Hills Cop with Dancing in the Sheets and the Grammy-winning Don’t Get Stopped in Beverly Hills, respectively. Hewett continues to seduce audiences and eardrums as he is constantly touring and intermittently releasing new music.  “Of all the fine vocalists working today, Howard Hewett is one of the finest.” - Babyface
George McCrae
There are few singers in soul music with a unique signature sound starting in the 60’s and still going strong today. With his straight from the heart, rich in emotion and knee-deep singing delivering breathtaking vocal depth and range George McCrae is one of those artists. After an impressive career including a #1 in more than 40 countries, several golden records, a Grammy nomination as best male R&B singer in 1975 and having worked with legends such as Michael Jackson & the Jackson 5, James Brown, KC & The Sunshine Band, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards as well Bill Wyman, George McCrae is now back with a new great classic and fresh sounding album called “LOVE”. Born the second of nine in West Palm Beach, Florida, George started singing gospel in church. Later he formed his own singing group the Jivin' Jets and after his wife Gwen McCrae joined the line-up, they soon worked as a duo recording for Henry Stone's Alston record label. They continued singing in clubs in Palm Beach as well on sessions together with Betty Wright doing backing vocals for artists such as the Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman’s first solo album "Monkey Grip". He was about to go back to college to study law enforcement when he heard from Casey and Finch who had written and recorded a song which was too high for KC to sing, George stepped in, and made history. That song was “Rock Your Baby” and made George McCrae a star himself spearheading the Miami Soul sound. The song sold over 15 million copies peaking #1 in more than 40 countries including the eponymous album in the top of more than 10 countries. “Rock Your Baby” is one of the fewer than forty all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) copies worldwide and is still the #1 selling song ever to come out of the state of Florida. It proved to be a highly influential record and is widely considered to be one of the first smashes of the disco era. Rolling Stone named “Rock Your Baby” the #1 song of the year for 1974, and George got a Grammy nomination for Best Male R&B Vocalist. John Lennon admired George McCrae and “Rock Your Baby” inspired him to write ‘Whatever Gets You through the Night”: "I still like black music, disco music… “Rock Your Baby”, “I’d give my eyetooth to have written that. But I never could. I am too literal to write “Rock Your Baby”. I wish I could”.
Tito Puente Jr
he comparison is inevitable. How could it be otherwise? Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, and his music.  Tito, Jr. is on a passionate mission. The younger Puente is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father. He refuses to let his father become a distant memory. “He was just too vibrant, too exciting. There was magic in the music my father made. It made people happy all over the world.” He has found captive audiences who echo his passion. Crowds lured to a venue by the father are returning to see the son -- and to once again participate in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage. Tito Puente, Jr. has become an audience favorite in casinos, performing arts centers, symphony halls and jazz festivals worldwide, performing more than 300 shows over the past 5 years.  His 2004 album, “In My Father’s Shoes” featured the classic Puente titles and was spun into a BET Jazz television special of the same name. He was seen in a tribute to his father’s music on NBC’s two hour special--“The Apollo at 70: A Hot Night in Harlem.” He has also appeared on the ABC soap opera hit “One Life to Live” in performance with his big band. Symphony appearances include Dallas, San Antonio, Colorado, South Bend, and upcoming performances with the Palm Desert Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. Tito, Jr.’s new CD release, “Got Mambo?” is a mixture of the old and the new as he takes a musical departure into some powerful new music he can truly call his own. Guest artists Bobby Cruz and Hansel & Raul help make this a coming of age project for Puente, Jr. and the album is receiving heavy praise from Tropical and Latin Jazz critics alike.  Tito Jr. reveres the magnificent, lasting impact his father had on our musical lives. “People who don’t know anything about Latin music know my father and people always, always smile when they say my father’s name,” he confides. “That is a very special gift I have been given.”  Tito, Jr. lives in South Florida and has two children, Miranda and Antonio.
