Charlie Wilson

Charlie Wilson (born January 29th, 1953) is an American R&B and soul singer from Oklahoma, US, formerly the lead vocalist of The Gap Band.

From the age of three, singing has always been an important part of Charlie Wilson’s life, training his vocal chords as part of the church choir before eventually forming The Gap Band with his two brothers. The group would go on to have a successful career for over four decades, with their infectious brand of upbeat funk being a constant feature of the American music scene.

Wilson began a solo career alongside The Gap Band, with his 2000 record, “Bridging The Gap” reaching number 30 in the US R&B charts, featuring guest appearances from Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg. This hit album was followed by Wilson signing with the Jive record company for the release of “Charlie, Last Name Wilson” in 2005 achieving greater success, reaching number 10 in the US charts.

The album went on to be certified Gold.

Wilson has enjoyed chart success ever since, featuring on a number of collaborative efforts with Hip Hop artists as well as his own recordings. His 2009 release, “Uncle Charlie” as Snoop Dogg affectionately refers to him as, went to number two in the US charts, with Wilson reaching the top ten again with 2013’s “Love Charlie.” Wilson has featured alongside artists including Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and U.G.K.

Charlie Wilson has received a number of accolades in his solo career, including seven Grammy Awards nominations and a Soul Train Icon Award in 2009. He has been highly influential in the R&B and Hip-Hop world, influencing the likes of Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and R. Kelly.
