Lenny Williams featured in
benefit concert for STS Academy
R&B crooner Lenny Williams, perhaps best known
as the lead singer for Tower of Power when the
group gained international acclaim, returns to
Pittsburg in a special benefit for the STS
Academy on Feb. 20 at the Creative Arts
Although known for his days with Tower of Power
and his vocal rendition of “So Very Hard To Go,”
Williams has enjoyed success as a solo performer
with a number of hits and gold albums. His
passionate vocal style has influenced many
popular R&B and Hip Hop artists, and he and
Kanye West were presented the BMI Songwriter’s
Award for the song “Over Night Celebrity”
recorded by rapper Twista.
His mega hit “Cause I Love You,” which crosses
generational boundaries, is frequently used on
both old school and slow jam album compilations.
Williams is a close friend of STS Academy
founder Jim Craft and appeared in a fundraising
concert for STS in 2009 to help the nonprofit
that provides academic support for Pittsburg
They met, said Craft, when he went to a
Williams performance and sat in the front row.
He kept asking Williams to sing “Choosing You,”
which was from Williams’ first solo gold album,
and Williams invited Craft on stage to sing the
song. After the concert, they learned that lived
around the corner from each other in El Sbrante,
and a friendship blossomed. Williams even
performed at Craft’s 60th birthday
The Project 4 Band, headed by PEAHOF Hall of
Famer Gerald Glasper, will open for Williams.
Tickets are available at the STS Academy
and at the door. VIP tickets, including
front-of-the-house seating, free parking and an
invitation to a post-concert reception, are $50.
Tickets at $25 and $15 are also available for
the 6 p.m. concert.
