Charlie Wilson Sets First 2017 Dates in Support of New Album

by VVN Music

Charlie Wilson has had one, long career, starting in the late 60's with The Gap Band, who would finally find success in the late-70's and 80's with eleven top five R&B hits, and his own solo career where he has now had five straight top twenty albums on the Billboard 200.

Those five albums have titles that all play off of Charlie's name (Charlie, Last Name Wilson; Uncle Charlie; Just Charlie; Love, Charlie; Forever Charlie) but he is finally going a different direction on February 17 with the release of In It to Win It.

Joining Charlie on the album are such artists as Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, Robin Thicke, Wiz Khalifa, and TI, the last of which appears with Wilson on the single from the album, I'm Blessed.

Charlie said "I am excited about my new single, I’m Blessed, because it says exactly where I am in my life, blessed to still be making music that people want to hear. 2016 has been a tough year for so many people around the world and I am proud to release a song that reminds us that we can all find some blessings in our lives. Having T.I. add his flavor to the song and share who he is and how his journey is filled with blessings is an added bonus."

Wilson will support the album with his In It to Win It Tour which will start on February 8 in Norfolk, VA. Joining Charlie will be Fantasia, Johnny Gill and the new artist Solero. Wilson said about the tour "I am excited about being on the road with my friends Grammy-Award winner, Fantasia, and four time Grammy-Award nominee, Johnny Gill. As usual, folks should come prepared for a party."
