Will Downing — who went to the same Brooklyn high school as Clive Davis and Barbra Streisand, and is the stepbrother of Boyz II Men’s Michael McCary — has had a busy music career. From working as a young college graduate with Jennifer Holliday and Kool and the Gang to 19 studio albums (including two released in 2015) to getting a Grammy nomination, Downing has stayed ridiculously involved in R&B. On tour, he also organized Strike Against Stroke bowling events to raise awareness about the elevated stroke risks that African-Americans face. His smooth sound and winning songs will make all who attend swoon and sway.
