Evelyn "Champagne" King
Grammy-winning singer Evelyn "Champagne" King's story reads like one of those rags-to-riches Hollywood fairy tales. Discovered while cleaning Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International Records headquarters, she rose to stardom, riding the Disco smash hit "Shame" (and other hits) all the way to the top!
This marks Evelyn's long-awaited return! Her first new album in many years, Open Book features all new songs, including the soon-to-be dance floor smash "The Dance" -- remixed courtesy of the U.K.'s Soul Seekerz (Rhianna, Basement Jaxx, Gym Class Heroes, etc.). Another new single, "Skillz" should also be receiving airplay on your favorite Urban station about the time you read this. And the beautifully crafted, stunning title song (which Evelyn describes as "slightly autobiographical") is guaranteed to evoke some soulful emotions.
Look for the album in August 2008!
