City Winery Chicago
1200 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60607-1604
City Winery Chicago is in for an R&B treat when Avant -- who was the first artist signed to NBA legend Magic Johnson's label -- takes the stage for a night of smooth sounds. Once christened the "the new voice of ghetto soul," Avant has flourished thanks to the strength of his songwriting and smooth-as-silk voice. Inspired and challenged by legends like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross and Babyface, the Cleveland-born crooner continues to appeal to a wide audience, proving once again that true soul touches everyone, with his hits "Separated," "My First Love" and "Read Your Mind." Avant will play his classics as well as new songs from his recently released eighth studio album, "The VIII".
