Join us at the Lake Stage at Polk Bros Park for a free, all-ages show featuring Syleena Johnson, part of Chi-Soul, the Chicago Soul Music Festival.
The R&B Diva Unites with Father & Legendary Soul/Blues Singer Syl Johnson for their First Recording Together In Over Two Decades. The iconic Etta James once said about authentic soul and blues music, “You can’t fake this music. It’s how you connect to the songs and to the history behind them.” Syleena Johnson is one of those undeniable talents whose unfaltering truth shines through every note she sings. Undoubtedly one of the best singers of her generation, Johnson has collaborated with everyone from Kanye West and Common to Anthony Hamilton and R. Kelly.
The Chicago Soul Music Festival — Chi-Soul — is an intergenerational musical conversation of Chicago soul music presented in honor of Black Music Appreciation Month.
Artist travel made possible through the generous support of American Airlines.
