FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Mar. 2, 2010 - Detroit native and nationally recognized singer and songwriter K’Jon will meet fans and sign photographs during a free autograph signing event from 7-8 p.m., Friday, March 5 at the Garden Court Condominium Building at 2900 E. Jefferson Ave. in Detroit.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m.  

Attendees who donate a canned good or item of clothing can receive a free music CD. Donations will be made to The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit. Additionally, during the signing, fans bringing a copy of K’Jon’s album ‘I Get Around’ to have autographed will receive a free copy of his new mix CD, ‘The Detroit Connect.’  Fans will have the opportunity to win free tickets to an upcoming Alicia Keys concert and to meet Oneil Stevens from MIX 92.3.

Sometimes described as “neo-soul,” “adult soul,” or more “R & B,” K’Jon has received national attention on the music scene, including from music critics at outlets such as Billboard Magazine and the New York Times. In 2004, his song, “Miami,” was featured on the soundtrack for 2Fast 2Furious and his 2007 album— The Ballroom Xplosion—featured his hit single “On the Ocean.” The song stayed on Billboard’s Hot Adult R&B Airplay chart for about six months.

K’Jon’s 2009 full-length major label debut on Universal Republic, I Get Around, included a re-release of “On the Ocean,” as well as the singles “On Everything” and “After the Club.” The album landed in the top spot on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums lineup during August 2009.

Directed and produced by Detroiter’s Darren Brown and Sareta Cheathem, the musician filmed several scenes for his single “On Everything” in the Garden Court Condominium Building (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcibhSq3tPY).  This is not the first time Garden Court Condominiums has had a starring role in television and film. The property was also featured on the popular 1980’s television show “Martin,” as the exterior of Martin Lawrence’s character’s home. Garden Court has appeared in HGTV programs and served as the backdrop for Katrina Carson’s debut music video “Beautiful.”

All attendees must be 18 years or age or accompanied by an adult.  Autograph opportunities will occur on a first come, first serve basis. Free CD supplies are limited.

About K’Jon’s Host, Garden Court Condominiums
   
Garden Court is significant as a large, early design of the famed architect, Albert Kahn, and for its association with the family of Hiram Walker. Albert Kahn designed the Garden Court building in 1915 for J. Harrington Walker (of Hiram Walker & Sons, Distillers). The building was rumored to have been constructed so the son of Whiskey giant Hiram Walker could view Detroit River traffic from his deceased father’s distilleries in Canada during prohibition. Today, the building’s two distinctive towers, with elegant entryways and lobbies, offer spectacular panoramic views of the Detroit River and the vibrancy of cross-border city skylines. Garden Court has beautiful one, two, three, and four bedroom homes, offering a variety of spacious floor plans ranging from 700 to 3,400 square feet. All units are designed to create a private haven in a fast-paced cosmopolitan environment. The building features beautifully landscaped grounds, classic hardwood floors, 10-foot ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, detailed moldings and panoramic views of the river and cityscape.
