    Chuck Brown thanks God for his life and his music. He sat down with Jim Vance at B Smith's Restaurant.

    Chuck Brown was nominated in the category Best R&B Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals for the song “Love,” a collaboration with Jill Scott and Marcus Miller. The song is from Brown’s release “We Got This” – a 20-minute studio EP plus a CD and a DVD of a live performance at 9:30 Club.

    Two other nominees are from the area. Carolyn Malachi was nominated for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for “Orion,” and Raheem DeVaughn was nominated for Best R&B Album for “The Love & War Masterpiece.”
