the AU interview: Charlie Wilson (Tulsa) talks Soulfest, becoming a New York Times Best Seller, and film aspirations

Charlie Wilson, now known to many as "Uncle Charlie", is not just one of the most respected and long-standing figures in soul, R&B, and funk, he is also an incredibly inspiring individual who has experienced more than you'd expect from that calm, collected voice. As of this year, the gifted musician has become a New York Times Best Seller for the first published work he has ever written: his long-awaited, warts-and-all memoir which details the dramatic highs and lows of his career to date; including his struggle with addiction and homelessness. Far from just a very affecting comeback story, Wilson's current state is a tight string of Grammy nods, show-stealing guest spots, and both commercially and critically successful albums, constantly introducing him to new generations of fans whether it be through the likes of Kanye West or his excellent solo work. He is living proof that age doesn't matter in music as long as you have the strength and determination to see things through and constantly reinvent yourself, while staying true to what made you famous in the first place...
