94.7 THE WAVE’S SOULFUL CHRISTMAS 2014
AT NOKIA THEATRE L.A. LIVE WITH PERFORMANCES BY
KENNY G, KENNY “BABYFACE” EDMONDS & BRENDA RUSSELL
ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13TH

94.7 THE WAVE’S SOULFUL CHRISTMAS 2014
Put a little soul in your holiday season with 94.7 The WAVE’s Soulful Christmas 2014 featuring Kenny G, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Brenda Russell on Saturday, December 13th at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE. Tickets available now at www.axs.com.

Kenny G has had one of the most eclectic and dominant careers the music business has ever seen. He’s maintained a high level of creative excellence through decades of unprecedented commercial success by never allowing himself to stay in one place too long. That reputation for musical curiosity stays well intact on his fourteenth studio album Brazilian Nights, set for release on January 27, 2015 via Concord Records.

Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, a 10-time Grammy winner with 11 solo albums of his own, impeccably crafted explorations of love, romance and relationships and has made an indelible imprint on the evolution of contemporary pop music throughout the world: more than 130 Top-10 R&B and Pop hits, 43 #1 R&B hits, and 51 Top-10 Pop hits (including 16 #1’s), which have produced single and album sales in excess of 600 million units worldwide. Most recently Kenny Edmonds produced latest albums for Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin, Colbie Caillat, Celine Dion, and the duet with Toni Braxton, Love Marriage & Divorce. His new solo album will be release in 2015.

Brenda Russell’s unique musical perspective, intimate voice and prolific treasure-trove of lyrics, prove that a truly glowing talent only deepens with time. Composer of the classics “Get Here,” “If Only For One Night,” and the Grammy-nominated “Piano In The Dark,” Brenda’s songwriting prowess and chameleon-like ability to shift between musical genres and combine styles trumpeted ovations in 2005 with the opening of the Tony Award-winning hit Broadway musical The Color Purple–a show for which she, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray co-wrote the music and lyrics. Brenda and her co-authors were also nominated for a 2007 Grammy in the Best Musical Show Album category for the original cast album.
