Los Angeles – Jive Recording artist Charlie Wilson has received two 2010 Grammy nominations for Best R&B Album for “Uncle Charlie” and Best Male R&B Vocalist for his single, “There Goes My Baby.”  This is the first time that Wilson, who has one of the most distinguished voices in R&B music, has been nominated for a Grammy Award.

“I am at a lost for words,” stated Wilson upon hearing the news.  “I am overjoyed, excited and proud.  2009 has been an incredible year for me.”

“Uncle Charlie” debuted on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Album Chart at #1 and the Billboard Hot 200 Chart at #2.  “There Goes My Baby” was a #1 hit for 10 weeks and spent 52 weeks on the Billboard Hot R&B Adult Singles Chart.  Charlie’s current single “Can’t Live Without” is #3 on the same chart and has remained on that chart for over 25 weeks.

Wilson, former lead singer for the funkadelic brotherly trio, the GAP Band, recently received the 2009 Soul Train Icon Award.  He also received the Rev. Charles Williams Award at the 2009 Indiana Black Expo for his work on behalf of prostate cancer.  A prostate cancer survivor, Wilson is a spokesman for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
