So join and receive an extra mileage for your initiative.

The CAW 5 has been dedicated to Wilbert Harrison, a Charlotte born creator, who sung blues and rhythm, painted, played guitar and harmonica and became the early rock and roll era star. Everybody is aware of the billboard topper record Kansas City; well we are today talking about the creator of that song. Born in 1929, Harrison was one of the hottest musicians of America and produced great records including the “Let’s work together” single of 1969 and “My heart is yours” in 1970. He produced records, toured many cities in the 80s and his version of Kansas City was performed by famous musicians including The Beatles, James Brown and Ann-Margret.
