Grammy winner Aloe Blacc returns to Park City
Singer will perform Sunday
Park City Institute presents singer, songwriter and producer Aloe Blacc, for an unforgettable evening during the 2017 St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights stage, at Deer Valley Resort Outdoor Amphitheater.
The concert will be held on Sunday, July 23, and will open at 7 p.m. with singer, songwriter, arranger and producer Quincy McCrary.
Grammy-nominated Blacc released his major-label debut album “Lift Your Spirit” in 2014 on XIX Recordings/Interscope Records where it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album followed up Blacc’s collaboration as vocalist and co-writer on well-known DJ and producer Avicii’s track “Wake Me Up,” a song that hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on its Hot Dance Club Songs and Dance/Electronic Songs charts.
The single also topped the charts in more than 100 countries.
Blacc’s single “The Man” topped the charts with more than 2.7 million singles sold and “Lift Your Spirit” received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album at the 57th Grammy Awards.
In 2016 Blacc penned and performed “Let The Games Begin,” a song that was featured in both the film and soundtrack for the Focus Features movie “Race,” Stephen Hopkins’ Jesse Owens biopic.
That year also saw Blacc collaborate with Zedd on “Candyman:” a modern reinterpretation of Sammy Davis Jr.’s 1972 classic “The Candy Man.”
Blacc’s other hits include “I Need a Dollar,” “Wake Me Up,” “The Man” and “Love is the Answer.” They all reflect his quest for social justice.
Blacc’s innovation also extends to his performances. His shows — much like his personality — are equal parts fun, engaging and uplifting.
He last performed in Park City in 2015.
“If you saw him two years ago, you know why he’s so hot right now,” Teri Orr, Park City Institute executive director, said. “The audience loves him—he had such a great time here, that he asked to come back. You won’t want to miss this one.”
Show opener Quincy McCrary is a Grammy award winning singer, songwriter, arranger and producer.
Born into a musical family, McCrary has worked professionally in the entertainment industry for nearly 30 years.
In addition to Aloe Blacc, McCrary has performed with notable artists such as John Legend, Mayer Hawthorne and Quetzal. He lives in Los Angeles.
Park City Institute will present Grammy Award-nominated Aloe Blacc at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 23, at Deer Valley’s Snow Park Amphitheater. Tickets range from $49 to $89. They can be purchased by visiting http://www.bigstarsbrightnightsconcerts.org.
