The Whispers
Nov 21 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm
The Whispers @ City National Grove of Anaheim | Anaheim | California | United States

with special guest Howard Hewett

One of R&B’s most popular and talented music groups, The Whispers, will perform at City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, November 21.

Celebrating a 50 year career including seven gold albums and two platinum albums, as well as 12 Top Twenty Singles, The Whispers were also inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003, and received the 2005 Regional Grammys Governors Award for all of their accomplishments. The Whispers have proven their staying power, and continue to gain more popularity as the latest generation has grown up listening and loving their music. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, describes how long The Whispers’ music will live on in the hearts of Americans. Known for their smooth soulful ballads throughout the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and the new millennium, The Whispers remain one of the premier R&B groups to ever grace the stage. Their musical success can be attributed to a careful balance of R&B, disco, jazz, and pop to the delight of millions of fans.

One of R&B music’s most beloved and consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers, began their legendary and timeless career in 1963, producing a string of hits over the last four decades such as “And the Beat Goes On,” “Rock Steady,” “A Song For Donny,” and “Lady.” They emerged as the leading romantic singers of their generation, racking up one gold album after another and charting numerous R&B hits. They are arguably the most celebrated R&B balladeers of their generation and still make women swoon with their silky yet forceful tenors of twins Walter and Scotty. In the new millennium the group still performs around the world to thousands of loyal fans.

Their music has been heard on movie sound tracks such as “Waiting to Exhale,” “Madea’s Family Reunion,” and “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.” They sang the title track on Jay Leno’s movie soundtrack “Collision Course”. The group has not made any personnel changes and still consists of Walter Scott, Wallace Scott, Nicholas Caldwell, and Leaveil Degree.  They are one of only a few “old school” groups that can boast of having 50 years in the industry with a worldwide fan base, maintaining their vocal dominance and original members.

Marsha Ambrosius

A great song takes you on an emotional journey. It’s an exploration into and embracing of longing, passion, remorse, romance, friendship, love, pain, happiness and everything that falls in between.

Multi-Grammy® nominated musician Marsha Ambrosius knows a little something about writing great songs. Whether it’s as one half of Floetry, on her chart-topping solo debut Late Nights & Early Mornings or her career as an acclaimed songwriter/producer, her observations on love and life paired with her soulful and honest vocals flip the personal into a universal truth.

Marsha Ambrosius will unleash her next tale of love and life through the release of her sophomore solo album, Friends & Lovers. Produced and written by Marsha, Friends & Lovers features collaborations with Charlie Wilson, Skye and Lindsey Sterling. The sixteen-track album plays host to a variety of standout records including the hip-hop flavored “Stronger” featuring Dr. Dre, which is a remake of Sade’s “Stronger Than Pride.” The track, produced by Marsha, is the perfect combination of soul and hip-hop. When discussing the collaboration, Marsha joyfully offers, “I’ve been privileged to be under great wings that have allowed me to shine.”

A native of Liverpool, England, Marsha burst on the music scene as the singing half of Floetry. Their 2002 debut Floetic produced “Say Yes” and “Getting Late” as well as four Grammy® nods. Following their 2005 sophomore album, Flo’Ology, the duo opted to take different paths and despite the difficulties of ending a long-time partnership, Marsha continued to build a name for herself as a songwriter and producer. Creating “Butterflies” for the late Michael Jackson in 2001, Marsha has also worked with the likes of Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, Busta Rhymes and Nas. She’s been nominated for a total of six Grammys®, honored by BMI as their “Songwriter of the Year” and has a devoted fan base that includes her musical idols Prince and Stevie Wonder.

Released in 2011, Late Nights & Early Mornings entered the Billboard Hot 200 at #2 and debuted at #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The single “Far Away”, was a staple on BET and Marsha was the recipient of a Centric Award at the 2011 BET Awards. “With my first project, I just knew that I just wanted to do an album. This time the concept came immediately, the stepping stone was already laid. So I was like, ‘Where do I go from here? What do I speak about?’ So I met a whole bunch of new friends I care about dearly and some potential lovers… it was like the sequel. I’m always connected to music but from a movie standpoint. Every song I create I see the movie, I visualize the video, I’ve connected to this character that you have to become to deliver the music. Even going back to the Floetry days, when I wrote “Getting Late” I knew that the lady had been divorced, that she had two baby daddies and the first one kept coming back,” Marsha laughs.

Asked what she hopes people will take away from Friends & Lovers and Marsha’s answer is as passionate as her music. “I wanted this album to be a thing that felt timeless. There are so many trends that come and go that if you find the space that makes you nostalgic, then that’s exactly the angle I was going for. To make you feel like you’ve heard this before or that it’s so relatable and you’re so able to connect with the story behind it, like ooh. I’ve had that wild night or I’ve had that early morning or I’ve met that friend who then became a lover. There are all these pieces of a puzzle that just come together in one project. I want them to know that she’s talking to me. On this album, my perspective is I want to hear you say what I want you to tell me.”

He won Grammys for Album of the Year, Producer of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male and Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male, for the single “I Wish” from the album. The second single, “Sir Duke” also attained #1 status.
