MULTI-GRAMMY AWARD NOMINATED SOUL MAN SINGER/SONGWRITER CALVIN RICHARDSON

You know when the iconic Soul man Charlie Wilson calls you “one of the most talented artists in the business” that you are truly special. Affectionately dubbed “The Soul Prince,” Multi-Grammy Award nominated singer/songwriter Calvin Richardson has been delighting fans with his straight-shooting no holds barred southern Soul and driving women mad for close to two decades. USA Today declares Richardson is “influenced by vintage R&B  and his gritty vocals set him apart from his smoother contemporaries…fresh vibes from a singer who respects and values his roots.” Calvin will be headlining the Saturday night concert.
