Live Friday: Raphael Saadiq In Concert
A modern-day soul revivalist, Raphael Saadiq (born Charlie Ray Wiggins) is a Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and record producer. A former member of the R&B trio Tony! Toni! Tone!, Saadiq has produced records for John Legend and Joss Stone and collaborated with the likes of Whitney Houston, D'Angelo, Stevie Wonder, The Bee Gees, The Isley Brothers and The Roots. His 20 years in the soul scene have left a remarkable old-school footprint in the music world, as he's fused the classic rock and soul sounds of the 1960s and '70s with his background in classical music, spirituals and jazz.
At noon ET this Friday, Saadiq will take the stage at The Queen in Wilmington, Del., to perform songs from his new album, Stone Rollin'. You can hear the entire show as it happens right here. Copyright 2011 WXPN-FM. To see more, visit http://www.xpn.org/.
