Charlie Wilson is a solid choice to headline Fresno's Soul Fest, which marks its fourth year at Selland Arena on Thursday.
The singer was lead vocalist for late '70s funk stars The Gap Band before embarking on a solo career that put him in front of a new audience singing alongside the likes of Robin Thicke, Wiz Khalifa and T.I.
Wilson is joined on the bill by Frankie J (of Kumbia Kings fame), and Montell Jordan (best known for the 1995 classic "This is How We Do It"). Tickets are available online at ticketmaster.com or at the Selland box office.
The Fresno Beehive is giving away two tickets to the show to a lucky reader.
