Grammy Nominated: Charlie Wilson

Charlie Wilson, affectionately known as "Uncle Charlie", has two 2012 Grammy nominations for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance for his hit song "You Are", from his latest CD Just Charlie; a song on which is wife is also a co-writer. "You Are" held the #1 position on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart for 13 weeks.

Charlie Wilson's music goes back to the '80s when he and his brothers Ronnie and Robert put out funkalicious jams such as "Outstanding", "You Dropped A Bomb On Me" and others as The Gap Band.  His influence can be heard in the vocal stylings of R. Kelly and Aaron Hall. Although drug and alcohol drug addiction almost overcame him after the band broke up, Wilson has reemerged and triumphed as a revered artist who is sought after by Hip-Hop and R&B artists to collaborate on their music; thus introducing him to a new generation of fans.  "Uncle Charlie" is truly the comeback kid-- he was also nominated for two Grammys in 2010. To find out if he will win this year, tune in to the Grammy Awards February 12 at 8/7c on CBS.

Charlie Wilson: "You Are" [Video]

With this single, You Are, Jive recording artist, Charlie Wilson is bringing back the quintessential wedding song. Making a noteworthy splash , this video touches that sentimental part of your soul that makes you appreciate that special someone or find that special person who makes your heart sing. Maybe it's the part of me that secretly likes a fairy tale but I'm a real sucker for a love story. I like how this video travels through the chapters of this couple from childhood to the alter. In the midst of  so many male crooners, "putting it on their heart [and not giving] a ring", this video is very inspiring to see. The only thing I would add - and this is just the picky part of me - is a little twist to the ending. I thought it would be good to see a back shot of the couple as kids holding hands right after the back shot of the couple getting married down the alter. It would act as that "suggestive wink" to how their story began towards the end of the song. Other than that, this is truly a nice video. :)
