We are excited to welcome Grammy award winner Norman Brown to the Independence Concert stage. Norman is an international touring artist that has sold over two million albums. This multi-platinum selling, chart-topping musician is an artist who is truly in service of music with the goal of being a force of positivity. His technical wizardry, soulful finesse and charisma have made him one of the most sought after internationally renowned contemporary jazz/R&B superstars that you won’t want to miss! Brown has collaborated with everyone from George Benson, Brian McKnight, Kirk Whalum, Miki Howard to Jeff Lorber, Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Peabo Bryson, Chante Moore, and many others.
