Launching the fourth annual VanMan Male Choral Summit, Chor Leoni presents the Vancouver debut of Grammy-award winners Take 6.
With renditions of iconic works from Ben E. King’s Stand By Me, to Pharrell’s Happy, Take 6 is sure to please just about everyone in the audience.
Here’s five reasons why we think you should go:
Take 6 are the world’s most-awarded a cappella group in history, having received ten Grammy Awards, ten Dove Awards, one Soul Train Award, and two NAACP Image Award nominations.
In 2014, the group was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame.
3. Celebrity friends
Legendary producer Quincy Jones once labeled Take 6 as “the baddest vocal cats on the planet.”
4. Famous family
Lead singer Claude McKnight is the older brother of US R&B star, Brian McKnight.
5. Cool collaborations
Take 6 just wrapped up a recording session with Dr. Dre. Other artists they’ve teamed up with in the past include Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston.
Take 6 plays the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver on Friday, April 6. Visit https://chorleoni.org for tickets and information.
