Anthony Hamilton

R&B singer Anthony Hamilton is a Southern boy at heart. Born and raised in Charlotte, he first was introduced to a national audience by singing the backing chorus on "Po' Folks," hip-hop group Nappy Roots' Grammy-nominated 2002 track, and has since been virtually synonymous with modern soul music. But his solo work maintains a deep Southern flavor, with tracks like "Cornbread, Fish, and Collard Greens" on his 2003 solo follow-up to "Po' Folks" titled "Comin' From Where I'm From." With his latest album, 2011's "Back to Love," racking up two Grammy nominations, Hamilton told Charleston Scene in 2012 that a change in his sound may be imminent, emphasizing his Southern roots and childhood interest in country music.

When: Friday, doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m.
