All monies raised from the concert will benefit The Women’s Challenge, Inc., a non-profit organization that seeks to creatively challenge today’s women to be healthy, by enriching their lives through interactive seminars and events focused on educating them in the specific areas of sexual health, physical activity, diet and nutrition, beauty concepts, financial empowerment and spiritual motivation.
“In all of our fundraising events, we use music as our muse to bridge the generation gap. Young or young-at-heart, we all relate to music in our own way. This year, our Celebration of Love features two outstanding artists, Maryland's own R&B sensation Raheem DeVaughn and smooth jazz keyboardist & vocalist, Frank McComb,” says Bailey-Carter, Founder and Chief Woman of Vision for The Women’s Challenge, Inc.
Raheem Devaughn is a 3-time Grammy nominated R&B Soul singer and songwriter. His debut album, The Love Experience (2005), reached No. 46 on the Billboard 200 album chart, featuring the singles "Guess Who Loves You More" and "You". His second album Love Behind the Melody was released in January 2008 featuring the singles "Woman" and "Customer". DeVaughn was nominated for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 2008 Grammy Awards for the single "Woman".
Often compared to Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder, Frank McComb is a soul singer and keyboardist and has collaborated with many renowned recording artists including Prince, Chaka Khan, Teddy Pendergrass, Gerald Levert, and Teena Marie.
The Celebration of Love will also include opening performances by vocalist Marc Evans and all-female band Les Femme Totale.
Radio One Magic 95.9FM’s very own LaDawn Black will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies.
