DIARY OF AN R&B LEGEND: USHER
The R&B Club and Classic Album Sundays D.C. Present
Downstairs, All Ages
DOORS: 1:30 PM // SHOW: 1:30 PM
Saturday October 19, 2019
The R & B Club is a group founded by music aficionado Ashley-Dior Thomas, entrepreneur, broadcaster, and writer, Marcus Dowling, plus well-respected journalist Justin Tinsley, to celebrate the legacy of soul music. Foremost in this quest is the "Diary of an R & B Legacy" series, which will highlight key artists and their legacies from R & B's golden era.
Up next is R&B legend Usher! There is no doubt that if Usher Raymond decided to retire tomorrow from being an R&B superstar, he would have a legendary career to look back on. The man has continued to show on several occasions that he is one of the hardest working artists in entertainment. Currently assuming his role as host of NBC’s ‘The Voice’, filming for the role of Sugar Ray Leonard in the upcoming movie Hands of Stone, and working on his anticipated eighth studio album, also expected to be released this year. But, perhaps his most notable accomplishment to date was the release and subsequent accolades of his album Confessions — which will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release on March 23rd.
On Saturday, October 19th, from 1:30-3 PM, join Thomas, Dowling, and Tinsley as The R & B Club both listens to, and discusses at-length, the impact and legacy of iconic soul music.
