SAN ANTONIO (October 14, 2019) - The Carver Development Board announces its annual fundraiser gala, Cavalcade of the Stars, on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Henry B. González Convention Center. The annual fundraiser benefits the Carver’s School for Visual & Performing Arts’ Artist Residency/Master Class Programs, summer camps, Youth Matinee Series and supports the education programs of the Carver Community Cultural Center.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The Cavalcade of the Stars begins with a reception and a silent auction, 5:30 pm followed by dinner at 6:30 pm, Bridge Hall. The concert, featuring R&B artist, Johnny Gill, begins at 8:30 pm at the Lila Cockrell Theatre.
With an unmistakable, unique trademark style, Johnny Gill has altered the sound of R&B music for over three decades with a signature sound that pairs superior singing with extraordinary showmanship, bringing the world classics such as “My, My, My,” “Rub You The Right Way,” “Where Do We Go From Here,” “Perfect Combination,” “Boys To Men,” “Can You Stand The Rain,” “My Body,” and the timeless wedding song, “You For Me” from Tyler Perry’s hit movie, Madea’s Family Reunion. With a seemingly endless list of hits, ranging from his time with New Edition to the all-star trios L.S.G. (the late Gerald Levert and Keith Sweat) and Heads of State (Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant), it’s easy to see why Johnny Gill serves as the prototype for the supreme R&B singer. www.johnnygill.com
