Legendary singer, Charlie Wilson stopped by our sister site MyHoustonMajic.com to talk about his new album, his battle with prostate cancer & why it’s so important for men to get tested – especially since African Americans are twice as likely to die from this disease than other ethnicities:
I was diagnosed in 2008 but I am now cancer-free…once I received a national platform I wanted to speak in the communities about having this conversation in your home.
Make sure to continue the conversation on Facebook! Like this story here and share it with the men you love!
When asked about how he maintains his longevity in the music industry, Charlie details how it contributes from his passion to keep releasing records, staying healthy and give fans a great show!
My band is really young so everybody has the energy level that I require. We level off at the top so if you don’t have the energy, you can’t be in my band.
Charlie also has a new line of Fedora hats which can be purchased here!
