A tribute to the late Teddy Pendergrass is building a bridge between Minnesota music and performance talent and Pendergrass' enduring legacy—the Philadelphis Sound. Johnnie "JB" Brown and Roslyn Harmon, Lead Vocalist and Vocal Arranger for Love TKO: a Tribute to TEDDYPENDERGRASS and the Sounds of Philadelphia, reflect on how far they have come in the making of the show and honor those who have inspired them along the way.
Friends across the ocean ! Cesaria Evora, JaJa Bashengezi & from Senegal, Cheikh Lo & Youssou N'Dour ! And another musician, friend, & a MN. family member – Mike O'Neil… who just left this plain today in Paris… A tribute to his work and connections. Then a move into some classic Belafonte and back to Mali & Paris — before closing it all up in Brasil on the eve of the Summer Olympics opening in Rio on Friday.
