This could be the year for Charlie Wilson

Not only is it a birthday celebration for R&B legend Charlie Wilson, best known for performing on stage with his brothers as the Gap Band, but it could be quite a celebratory event with Sunday's Grammy's and Charlies' two-time nomination...one for best R&B album for his project "Uncle Charlie", as well as for best R&B vocal performance for the song, "There Goes My Baby." Way to go indeed Uncle Charlie and what a journey it has been for you to get this far and finally get the recognition that you deserve! And what a transition..do many of you know that Charlie admitted to shedding quite a few tears after going from a homeless has-been to finding out he was a Grammy nominee? As talented of a singer and songwriter that he is, it's hard to believe that so many doors have been shut on him over the years, in addition to overcoming a drug problem, a money dispute with a former manager(one that even led him to being blackballed in the music industry),  and losing his Father to Prostate Cancer, Charlie is now being blessed in ways that he probably couldn't even imagine! And Charlie is a great ambassador to represent the true Old School for this Sunday's biggest night in music, so here's to wishing Charlie the best and hoping that he can clear some shelf space for a Grammy, maybe even two!
