The groove is guaranteed to be “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” at UC College-Conservatory of Music’s tribute concert to Stevie Wonder. Hear the hits of this legendary artist brought to life by the CCM Jazz Lab Band and Cincinnati native Tyshawn Colquitt at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019 at CCM’s Corbett Auditorium.
This concert features the soul of Stevie Wonder in an evening filled with such classics as “Superstition,” “My Cherie Amour,” “Isn’t She Lovely,” “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and “Higher Ground.” This one-night-only performance features guest vocalist Tyshawn Colquitt, a seven-time winner of Showtime at the Apollo and recent contestant on NBC’s The Voice singing competition.
Tickets to the music of Stevie Wonder concert can be purchased online through CCM’s e-box office, over the phone at 513-556-4183 or in person at the CCM Box Office in the atrium of UC’s Corbett Center for the Performing Arts.
Tyshawn Colquitt is no stranger to singing competitions. He competed on NBC’s show The Voice and he is a seven-time winner of Showtime at the Apollo. The 24-year-old from Avondale won his first competition on the Apollo stage at the age of 13. While he was a student at Cincinnati’s School for the Creative and Performing Arts, Colquitt was presented with numerous awards including the prestigious Corbett Award.
He was recruited by Berklee College of Music and awarded a “presidential” scholarship that he turned down in order to participate in the 2014 “New Wave” European competition. He represented the U.S. in the finals of the international competition, which set out to discover the world’s next best pop star.
Colquitt is a talented singer, songwriter, pianist and budding producer. He is currently recording his first solo album and was recently featured on Bootsy Collins’ latest album “World Wide Funk.”
