Team CY is devastated to know about the peace shattering 47th homicide of this year occurred at a local bar this Saturday in Charlotte City. We pay homage through this week’s Charlotte Art Weekly to all the victims and families who have lost a piece of love in the course of this heinous act.
The motivation for the third edition of Charlotte Art Weekly is none other than the city born R&B songster Nappy Brown. A blazing singer and musician born in 1929, he is reminisced for using exceptional onomatopoeia quality lyrics within his records. Originally named as Napoleon Brown Goodson Culp, brown’s influence in the genres of R&B, Blues and Soul music was so exceptional, that even Elvis Presley made certain to visit his performance whenever he performed at Memphis, Tennessee. His tracks like Don’t Be Angry, Little by Little, Night Time Is The Right Time, were considered Billboard Chart toppers in the 50s and had received numerous accolades for his flawless musical style including a mention in the Blues Hall of Fame.
To keep the spirit going at this moment here is the CAW list of recommended happenings for this week at Charlotte:
