May 22, 2018
R&B singer Anthony Hamilton performed at the R&B Super Jam presented by Urban Vibe Entertainment in Chicago on Friday, May 11, 2018 at the Wintrust Arena along with Eric Benet & KEM. Anthony is best known for his inspiring work that touches everyone that hears his music. He has a countless number of hits including “Freedom,” "Charlene,” and platinum-selling album, “Comin’ from Where I’m From.” When Anthony entered the stage at the Wintrust, the crowd immediately jumped to their feet welcoming him and singing along with every song. Mr. Hamilton doesn’t just sing songs, he tells stories that hit home with those who love him. Anthony was born in North Carolina and found his love for music singing in his church choir.
twinKonnections had the pleasure of Konnecting with Anthony Hamilton. Check out our interview below.
We were also given the opportunity to provide a Meet & Greet contest for two individuals to meet Mr. Hamilton. We asked the participants how has Mr. Hamilton’s music been an inspiration personally or in the community? “My favorite song is Sister Big Bone. This song touches me in such a special way. Growing up I have always been a thick girl with I guess you can say low self esteem. When I heard that song it put a smile on my face and it hit places in my heart that I thought could never be touched” says one of our contestants. The responses really showed how his music gives great inspiration. Terrence Ellery, one of our winners, said “I’ve enjoyed several artists over my years being a fan of only Whitney, Michael Jackson, New Edition, Jay Z, and the Force MD’s, but then Anthony Hamilton comes along and hit me in a way no other artist has. The music I can relate to. He seems to write from my mindset.”
We look forward to more from Anthony Hamilton.
