The Bassline in Newtown, Johannesburg is proud to announce a rare intimate performance for two exclusive nights with one of music’s biggest international stars, Kenny Lattimore.
Kenny Lattimore is no stranger to South African soul lovers, Lattimore has performed to sell-out crowds in Johannesburg before. This time it’s much different as this Grammy-nominated, highly acclaimed artist desired to get up close and personal with the people of South Africa. In this rare performance he will bring audiences his unique flavour of musical sensuality, vocal agility and dramatic stage performances – all perfectly combined with a compelling subtlety that makes him one of the worlds’ top singer/songwriters.
Lattimore has earned the reputation as one of today’s premier male vocalists, as well as a compelling songwriter who passionately explores universal themes and truths in a fresh new way. He makes music from his heart that feeds his listeners’ souls both lyrically and melodically. Since his debut in 1996 he has raked in numerous awards, performed globally to sell out crowds and continued to sell to ‘Gold’ status with his releases. He has also inspired many of todays artists, including Kanye West, who sampled the Lattimore composition “Lately” on the track “I’m In It” on his groundbreaking album Yeezus.
A true music-man, Lattimore is also an internationally respected producer, having been sought out by heavy-weights such as Musiq Soulchild, Ray J, Nancy Wilson, Heather B and many others, to work on their albums.
This stunning event coincides with Lattimore’s anticipated 2014 single release Built To Last, the song that supports the much anticipate documentary in support of the ‘Being One Initiative’.
