Charles Ray Wiggins, better known by his stage name, Raphael Saadiq is known for setting the standard for high-quality R&B in the '90s and for today's R&B artists. Saadiq was introduced to the masses as a member of the multiplatinum R&B group, Tony! Toni! Toné! and has since gone on to lead a successful solo career and produce hits for the likes of Mary J. Blige (Tickets), John Legend, Whitney Houston, Solange, and many more. Now, the occasional member of the supergroup known as The Ummah will be hosting an intimate discussion about his career followed by a performance at the famed Grammy Museum in downtown Los Angeles, California ahead of the release of his upcoming album, Jimmy Lee.
Jimmy Lee will be Raphael Saadiq's sixth studio album and his first solo release in eight years. The album is expected to be profoundly personal with subject matter focusing on Saadiq's older brother who passed away due to a drug overdose. The "Let's Get Down" singer's one-time appearance at the Grammy Museum will take place on July 9 at 7:30 p.m. Despite the fact that there hasn't been an official release date announcement for Saadiq's latest musical offering, a tour has been announced for the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter to perform the project in front of his fellowship.
The Jimmy Lee Tour will be making stops at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles (Tickets) and the Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York (Tickets) in the coming months.
