Grammy Award-winning Multi-platinum artist Monica headlines the Chicago R&B Music Experience featuring Soul Train Music Awards winners Tevin Campbell, Tamar Braxton, Silk and 1997 Grammy Award-winning group 112. This talented group of artists has been performing around the world for over four decades and continues to get fans off their seats with songs like “The Boy Is Mine,” “Can We Talk,” “Love and War,” “Freak Me” and “I’ll Be Missing You.”

Monica is a Grammy Award-winning Multi-platinum artist, singer, actress, philanthropist and entrepreneur. She was the youngest female ever to have back-to-back #1 hits on Billboard’s R&B chart from her 1995 debut album “Miss Thang.” Monica has had #1 Billboard singles in three consecutive decades, which puts her in the elite company of history-making superstars such as Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, James Brown and Marvin Gaye.

Since releasing his platinum-selling debut album “T.E.V.I.N.” in 1991, vocal powerhouse Tevin Campbell has long been known as one the R&B’s most successful creative forces. During his accomplished career, he’s sold over five million records in the United States and earned five Grammy nominations.

Tamar Braxton began her career in 1990 as a founding member of The Braxtons but has since established her solo career with four Grammy Awards, three Soul Train Music Awards and a BET award to her credit. Her most recent album reached #5 on the US Top Album Sales chart and #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart.

El DeBarge, known for his signature falsetto, was the lead singer of the ’80s R&B sibling group DeBarge throughout their career, appearing on the hits “All This Love,” “Love Me in a Special Way,” “Who’s Holding Donna Now,” and “Rhythm of the Night.” After leaving the group in 1985, he launched his solo career in 1986 with a self-titled debut album that featured the number three hit “Who’s Johnny?,” featured in the film Short Circuit.

Silk is best known for their hit singles, “Freak Me” which reached number-one on the US Billboard Hot 100, and “Happy Days” from their debut album, Lose Control. Another hit from Lose Control, “Girl U For Me”, helped the album reach double platinum status. They later had success with singles such as “I Can Go Deep”, “Hooked on You”, “Don’t Rush”, “If You” (released February 23, 1999) “Meeting in My Bedroom”, and “We’re Calling You”. In 1994, Silk won Album Of The Year for Lose Control at the Soul Train Music Awards.

112 founded by group member Michael Keith and groomed by Sean “Puffy” Combs, Atlanta-based group 112, had a meteoric rise that solidified them as the hottest R&B group of their time. Their debut, album “112” (1996) went double Platinum and gave us hit records like “Cupid” and “Only You”, which featured memorable features from the late, great Notorious B.I.G while also introducing us to then newcomer on the scene, and Bad Boy label mate, Mase. Proving that lightning can in fact be caught in the bottle, the group quickly followed up their debut with yet another double Platinum offering. “Room 112” dropped just two years later and featured records like “Come See Me” and “Anywhere”

SHAI the four-man urban contemporary vocal group shot to the top of the R&B and pop charts with their debut album at the end of 1992, …If I Ever Fall in Love, and its number-one title track. Although they sometimes lack quality material, the smooth silkiness of their voices usually makes such weaknesses easy to ignore; the group has remained hot on the R&B charts, even if they haven’t duplicated the pop success of their first single.
