If you’re like me you can appreciate good music no matter your age or what time period you grew up in. I am a huge fan of the time when music and soundtracks defined a moment in your life. While I’m not from the Smokey Robinson time period, I certainly grew up with his music played by my parents.
My exposure to all genres and different kinds of music is the reason why I am excited to see him next week at the Crown Coliseum in their Community Concert series. It’s always great to see iconic legends come right here to the Fort Bragg area.
Once pronounced by Bob Dylan as America’s “greatest living poet,” acclaimed singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson’s career spans over 4 decades of hits. He has received numerous awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award and the National Medal of Arts Award from the President of the United States. He has also been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
During the course of his 50-year career in music, Robinson has accumulated more than 4,000 songs to his credit and continues to thrill sold-out audiences around the world with his high tenor voice, impeccable timing, and profound sense of lyric. Never resting on his laurels, Smokey Robinson remains a beloved icon in our musical heritage.
Robinson will appear for one night only on Thursday April 16, 2015 at The Crown Theater in Fayetteville. Showtime is 7:30PM
