RCA-CBS Recording Artist Charles Overton held his first of three “Music Is My Life” concerts last Friday at the V.F.W. Post No. 2173 in Vandalia.
The evening featured two concerts along with a menu featuring Uncle Shocko’s baby back rib dinners and fish dinners with two sides.
“I want to kind of tell the story of my life since I’ve been involved in music so many years,” said Overton before the event, whose past accomplishments include being in the famous group ‘Brainstorm.’
“I want people to understand I have a passion to entertain them.”
He presented some of his newest material during the evening.
He was joined by Memphis, Tennessee’s Emery Lovett.
He met Lovett through her work with the Chump Change Blues Band.
The two recording artists have been recording together over the past couple of years.
Overton expects his name to gain some traction once again with the re-release of Brainstorm’s first three albums worldwide.
The Brainstorm album “Stormin” included the disco hit single “Lovin’ Is Really My Game.”
The song was the 1978 Billboard Magazine Light Radio/Heavy Disco Record of the year.
The album also included “This Must Be Heaven.”
No official dates have been scheduled for his next two concert events.
Overton did say the evening was a success.
