The 2017 Summer Music Series Includes:
Saturday, June 3 featuring Myrna Clayton & Jabari Walker: America’s Songbird Myrna Clayton and Jabari Walker kick off the summer concert series starting with Jazz in June. Myrna, greatly influenced by Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin, has performed all across the world in theatre halls, festivals, churches and more. Her uplifting performances are drawn from jazz, pop, soul gospel, R&B, blues and country. After bringing the crowd to their feet last year, Atlanta musical icon, Jabari returns to the stage with Myrna as they share an equal love for jazz, blues, soul and gospel. Growing up in a musical family inspired him towards a job in entertainment and artistry which led him to release his independent debut CD “When I’m With You” in 2003. Get up and dance to Myrna as she performs and close the night with Jazz crooner, Jabari as he entertains with a wonderful program of jazz standards.

Saturday, July 22 featuring Lola: Blues in July continues the summer concert series with Lola “Atlanta’s Queen of Blues”. Starting her music career after college as a keyboard player with the late soul great Johnnie Taylor, Lola learned the ins and outs of the music industry while touring across country and working crowds into a frenzy. In 1996, after winning a nationwide talent contest on BET, she was signed by Andre Harrell with a Motown recording contract. Lola has shared the stage with The Pointed Sisters, Bobby Womack, Bobby “Blue” Bland and more. Lola returns to Tower Stage as a crowd favorite from last year bringing with her more original songs, high powered keyboards and her deeply soulful, rich and powerful voice.
