John the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic on Valentine’s Day for an intimate dinner and a show to celebrate love. Special performance by Alyson Williams and Nat Adderley, Jr.
Alyson Williams’ career spans over three decades and includes her hits “Just Call My Name,” “Sleep Talk,” “My Love Is So Raw,” and “Yes, We Can Can.” She got her start providing backing vocals for artists like Melba Moore, BB&Q, Cashflow, Bobby Brown and Barbara Mitchell, before striking out on her own.
Known primarily for his work with the legendary Luther Vandross, Nat Adderley Jr. wrote and arranged Luther Vandross’ first top 20 pop hit “Stop to Love” as well as other Vandross singles “Wait for Love” and the Grammy-nominated “Give Me the Reason.” He produced tracks on Vandross’ final seven albums, including the duet with Beyonce “The Closer I Get To You” which also appeared on her album Dangerously in Love, where it won the 2004 Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group Grammy award.
Nat’s other successful collaborations include writing “The Wave” for Kirk Whalum, arranging Natalie Cole’s 1987 hit “When I Fall In Love”, producing “Just Another Lonely Night” for Johnny Gill, arranging most of Aretha Franklin’s Jump To It album, producing Gloria Lynne’s album No Detour Ahead and string arrangement for Doc Powell’s Grammy-nominated version of “What’s Going On.”
