Blues for Sweet Relief
Catch Lazer Lloyd as he returns to Orange County for a special musical appearance to benefit our cause! Lazer will bring his blend of Americana roots, blues rock, folk, and outlaw country with psychedelic spice.
We’re shaking things up for this month. Instead of our usual Artist of the Month, we want to recognize a few supporters by introducing Trivia Month! All throughout July we will be choosing artists who have supported our cause and sharing some interesting facts and trivia. The first artist we’d like to introduce for Trivia Month is the Grammy Award Winning recording artist, Miguel!
Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single ‘All I Want Is You,’ from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which blended a stark hip-hop beat with Miguel’s creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B. The album also features ‘Sure Thing,’ which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 ‘Quickie.’ Miguel’s follow up was his critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album ‘Kaleidoscope Dream,’ which features his third US #1 hit single ‘Adorn,’ the intoxicating ‘How Many Drinks?’, ‘Do You…’ and ‘The Thrill.’ In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single ‘Adorn,’ written and produced by Miguel, garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart.
