Support the Rhythm & Blues foundation and bring your party spirit. Let's have a night of music and charity!"

Damon Williams, Chairman of the Board for the Rhythm & Blues Foundation further added "The Rhythm and Blues Foundation is honored that R&B artists from the 90's are getting together to support our mission of preserving the legacy of R&B music.
