Charlie Wilson had a sold out concert in Pittsburgh!
The one and only R&B legend “Charlie Wilson” gave a performance at the Benedum Center that no one will ever forget
This week I visited the Benedum Center in Downtown Pittsburgh, Savoy Restaurant in the Strip District, Olivet Baptist Church in the Hill District and CJ’s in the Strip District.
My first stop was at Olivet Baptist Church in the Hill District where Pastor Tyrone Munson held an event featuring his family and friends. Everyone came out to get their praise and worship on at this great event.

My next stop was at the Benedum Center in Downtown, Pittsburgh where the Northside Coalition for Fair Housing presented “Mother’s Day 2013 featuring Charlie Wilson and Mint Condition”. This show was sold out and off the chain. Mint Condition was fantastic and “Uncle Charlie” closed out the show with his show stopping entertainment.
