When Quincy Jones takes a shine to you, you’re doing something right. When Prince takes the same shine to you, it’s proof that you have a talent that others don’t. And when both of those titans help kickstart your career when you’re still a teenager, you’re Tevin Campbell.<p>
From Waxahachie choirboy to Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling R&B star, Tevin Campbell’s meteoric rise is the stuff of music industry legend. After acing an audition for jazz flutist Bobbi Humphrey by singing over the telephone, young Tevin’s pure, soulful croon eventually caught the ear of famed producer Quincy Jones. His recording debut at age 14, “Tomorrow (A Better You, Better Me)”, made a serious musical statement by reaching the top of the R&B charts. Next came Tevin’s single, “Round and Round”, produced by the artist formerly and currently known as Prince, who also featured the singer in the movie Graffiti Bridge. After that came hit after hit after hit, including “Tell Me What You Want to Do”, “Can We Talk”, and “I’m Ready”—an impressive streak that earned him five Grammy nominations.<p>
Now at the age of 36, but with a voice that is still too young to vote, Tevin displays the charm that first charmed Jones and the Purple One in an exclusive Bay Area performance backed by a slinky full band.
The Historic Bal Theatre
Since it opened in 1946, the 800-seat Bal Theatre has continually hosted a wide array of film screenings, comedy shows, and musical acts on its stage, remaining one of the few American theatres of its era never to have shut down. Despite the building's vintage art-deco vibe, the theater boasts a concert-series sound system, digital projection, and three-dimensional seats, immersing audiences in a heightened sensory experience.
