Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City, NJPAC’s free outdoor music series in Chambers Plaza, continues with this evening of contemporary R&B and soul featuring best-selling singer-songwriter-producer Jon B.
Jon B. first burst onto the pop music scene with his 1995 debut album, Bonafide, which went platinum and received a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals” for the hit single “Someone to Love.” His sophomore effort, Cool Relax, also went platinum and earned multiple Billboard Music Award nominations, including one for Top R&B Artist.
On his subsequent LPs, including Pleasures U Like, Stronger Everyday, and Helpless Romantic, Jon B. continued to perfect his smooth blend of classic soul and R&B, all seasoned with touches of hip-hop, rock, reggae, dancehall, and jazz.
Singer and songwriter Armen Paul opens the performance.
