Charlie Book CoverYou may call Charlie Wilson many things—a God-fearing mega-talented artist, pioneer, consummate showman, writer, producer, teacher, mentor, motivator, visionary, advocate, survivor in more ways than one and now a future best-selling author. Today “Uncle” Charlie Wilson delivers a gift to the world and his legions of devoted fans in the memoir, “I Am Charlie Wilson.” Uncle Charlie is more than transparent and vulnerable as he shares his life experience of the highs and lows of superstardom as a group member and solo artist, family and his triumph over adversity as well as recovery from a lengthy battle with substance abuse and homelessness. Celebrating 20 years of sobriety, with the world as his oyster, Charles continues to take the world by storm having released seven studio albums, garnering nine Grammy nominations, received the 2013 BET Lifetime Achievement Award and the hits just keep on coming. One must always prepare for a Charlie Wilson concert knowing it will hit like a tsunami whether you are sixteen or sixty. Nearly every artist that works with Charlie, has clearly taken a page from the “Book of Charles” and studies it like a chapter from the New Testament. The laundry list of artists reads like a “who’s who in music. (Can I get a “yezzzz?”….aka, the new “amen.”) Charlie-Wilson-In a previously released quote Uncle Charlie says” I had a great publishing company that worked with me, Simon & Schuster. I’m happy that fans will be coming to see me at my book signing, and I will be able to sign their book. I appreciate their love and support. Publishing a book is almost like working on another album because you want the album to be a top seller and also captivate people as well. It’s like I’m reaching the number one spot all over again. It just feels good to know that fans support me in any endeavor I decide to do as an artist.” The view from my window clearly shows Charles Kent Wilson can do no wrong. I am one of the fortunate ones to call him friend and then some. If Charlie Wilson can rise above all of the many life obstacles thrown in his path, after reading this book, you will ask yourself…who can’t survive??
