Best of Atlanta Concerts is giving away a pair of tickets for Wade Ford Concert Series Presents: SMOOTH SUMMER NIGHTS featuring Ben Tankard, Kim Water, Brian Simpson, Eric Darius & Steve Cole – In Concert at Mable House Barnes Amphitheater on Saturday, July 16, 2016 to one lucky Atlanta Natural Hair Care follower.
Since he came on the national scene in 1990, there have been many titles associated with Ben Tankard, from the Quincy Jones of Gospel to the father of Gospel Jazz. As a modern day “David” and often referred to as “The Minstrel,” Ben Tankard has a strong anointing to play under the unction of the Holy Spirit and has witnessed tumors melting, people being raised out of wheel chairs, deaf ears opened, and relationships mended in his concert-crusades.
Tankard states, “signs and wonders must follow when a minstrel plays. We should expect debt cancellations and all other yokes to be destroyed and burdens lifted when our music is played.” With over 21 Gold and Platinum Records lining his walls, 14 Stellar Awards, multiple Grammy & Soul Train Award Nomination, Ben Tankard is the best-selling gospel/jazz artist of all time. Also a “hit-maker” producer, Ben discovered Yolanda Adams and has produced several top records for her, as well as collaborated with Take-6, Fred Hammond, and others.
Saxophonist Kim Waters has made a career of writing timeless anthems with insatiable grooves, undeniable hooks and memorable melodies that combine the best of jazz, R&B, funk and soul. This formula has catapulted him to the top of the charts time and time again and prompted Jazz Times Magazine to declare, “Waters is simply one of the planet’s best saxophonists.” Instantly recognizable for his keen melodic sensibilities and soulful approach to his saxophone, The Washington Post has likened Waters to “A romantic pied piper out on a long evening stroll.” The prolific saxophonist, composer and producer has enjoyed a career longevity that is rare. Waters’ Zen-like approach to his life and artistry is simple. “My motto is to try and live in a way where I am not stressing about anything. What’s going to be is going to be. I strive to be happy because life is short.”
