 Charlie Wilson Biography

Charlie Wilson, also known as Uncle Charlie, is an R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, and the former lead vocalist of the Gap Band. As a solo artist, he has been nominated for over a dozen Grammy awards. He has won two NAACP Image Awards, received a 2009 Soul Train Icon Award, and was a recipient of a BMI Icon Award in 2005. In 2009, he was named Billboard magazine's #1 Adult R&B Artist, and his song "There Goes My Baby" was named the #1 Urban Adult Song for 2009 in Billboard Magazine.

On June 30, 2013, BET honored Wilson with a Lifetime Achievement Award that was presented to him by Justin Timberlake. The BET tribute performances included renditions of Wilson's songs performed by India Arie ("There Goes My Baby"), Jamie Foxx ("Yearning for Your Love"), and Stevie Wonder ("Burn Rubber") but it was not until Wilson himself took to the stage at the request of Timberlake to perform his Grammy-nominated song "You Are" and then transition into a medley of hit songs performing alongside Timberlake and surprise guests Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams that Wilson stole the show during the youth-oriented program. The Charlie Wilson tribute helped BET achieve the highest ratings in years for the program and also earned the network the #1 primetime spot in the 18–49 demographic topping all of its broadcast and cable competition for the night in both demographics and total viewers. Later that year, Wilson was featured on the Kanye West's single "Bound 2," although his vocals were uncredited.

The son of a minister in the Church of God in Christ, Wilson and his brothers often sang in church before their father’s Sunday sermons, accompanied on piano by their mother. He also sang in his junior high school's choir, which was a precursor to his musical career with the Gap Band and later his solo career. He attended high school at Booker T. Washington. He attended Langston University and would go on to become drum major in the Langston University Marching Pride.

Wilson is the national spokesman of the Prostate Cancer Foundation, where there is a Creativity Award in his name which donates hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to researchers across the country for the development of creative science.
