Jermaine “JP” Powell is a North Carolina based mixed-media artist and muralist. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, JP holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, located in Brooklyn, New York. His paintings and public art projects explore the complexities of human relationships, materialism, and consumerism. As a world traveler, JP’s travel experiences have inspired the use of various luxury objects used in his work. Both American and international currencies are often featured symbolically in his work. In his Modern Currency and Pure Luxury Collections (2018-2020), JP also uses bold, colorful textures, flowers, patterns, and mosaic tile. JP is the co-creator of the Breathe: Life After Death group art exhibition featured at the Block Gallery in Raleigh, North Carolina. JP’s artwork has also been featured in Cary Living Magazine, Duke University, Art Space Galleries, Raleigh Arts, The City of Durham, and the Durham Art Guild. He is fortunate to have collectors throughout the United States, Argentina, Japan, South Africa and London. In June of 2020 JP was formally announced as the 1st place winner of the Fuquay Varina Plein Air Paint Off. JP’s work has been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Ohio, New York, Maryland, Washington D.C. and North Carolina.

An Evening with Ginuwine & Friends

Ginuwine: After spending much of 2013 focusing on his R&B supergroup TGT -- which also features Tyrese and Tank -- Ginuwine shifted his attention to his solo work with the planned 2014 release of a new album titled Old School Young -- his first solo recording since 2011's Elgin. His successful stint with TGT included the release of an album titled Three Kings, which hit No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart, and a tour that had fans snapping  up tickets for concerts in major performing arts centers.

Ginuwine, born Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, is a native of Washington, D.C. who grew up listening to the music of Michael Jackson and Prince, which inspired him to begin performing. After he was discovered by the R&B group Jodici in 1996, he was signed by Epic Records and released his debut album, titled Ginuwine... The Bachelor. It spawned the hit single "Pony," which is a good example of his influential brand of hip-hop soul. Among the other hits in Ginuwine's catalog, which inspired young stars like Ne-Yo and Chris Brown, are "Differences," "In Those Jeans," and "So Anxious."

Donnell Jones: Donnell Jones’ career took off in 1996 with his album My Heart, a collection of R&B gems that helped establish his reputation as a moody, soulful crooner. His cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Knocks Me Off My Feet” became a huge hit and showcased his spectacular singing voice. His live concerts bring his background in gospel music to the stage and ticket holders get the chance to hear Jones belt out some of his most popular numbers, like “U Know What’s Up” and “Shorty (Got Her Eyes on Me).” His smooth moves and soulful songs get the crowd chanting along with him, and he is great at injecting energy into his concerts and owning the stage with his sharp style. Donell Jones recently embarked on a 2013 tour to promote his newest album Forever, which the endlessly talented singer wrote and produced himself.


Born in Chicago to a gospel-singer father, Jones took an interest in music at a very young age. In order to avoid the gang culture of Chicago’s South Side, he started hanging out with local musicians and soon partnered up with Untouchables Entertainment president, L.A. Reid and Babyface, who gave him the boost he needed to spark his career. His solo debut My Heart jumped up to No. 30 on Billboard’s R&B chart and featured the singles, “Knocks Me Off My Feet,” “In the Hood” and “You Should Know.” If you're looking for an R&B artist with a knack for writing original, addictive tunes, be sure to catch this superstar next time he comes through your town.

Case: R&B crooner Case has been enchanting fans with his silky-smooth voice and sensitive slow jams for more than two decades. From his early days singing backup for artists like Usher and Al B. Sure to his current status as an R&B heavyweight, he has consistently delivered pitch-perfect performances -- both in the studio and in concert. Whether he's singing early favorites like "Touch Me, Tease Me" or treating fans to cuts from 2014's Heaven's Door, Case's passion and charisma on stage always make for an unforgettable concert experience.

A New York City native, Case Woodard got his start in the early '90s singing backup for artists like Usher and Christopher Williams. Russell Simmons recognized his talent and signed him to Def Jam Records, and in 1996 Case released his debut single "Touch Me, Tease Me". The track featured Foxy Brown and Mary J. Blige and was an immediate hit, landing at No. 4 on the R&B chart and establishing Case as an artist in his own right. His self-titled debut album followed shortly after, earning praise from fans and critics and landing at No. 7 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart. His next three albums all placed within the Top 5 on that chart, producing a string of hit singles that included "Happily Ever After" and  "Missing You". With the release of his fifth studio album Heaven's Door generating buzz in 2014, Case has ticket buyers eagerly awaiting the chance to catch him on tour.

Adina Howard: Delivering a strong debut in 1995 with her edgy RIAA certified gold & platinum hit single “Freak Like Me” and album “Do You Wanna Ride?” Famed award-winning American singer, songwriter, actress, and chef, Adina Howard made a remarkable impact on the music industry and achieved worldwide stardom.

Widely ridiculed for her salacious lyrics and provocative image, Adina Howard is revered as a pioneer of sexual expressionism in urban music. Her artistic contributions changed the soundscape of urban music and set the stage for many of the female recording artists known today.

In 2010, Adina temporarily put her singing career on hold to pursue her passion for cooking. While working towards her associate degree in culinary arts, she worked as a line cook for a AAA Four Diamond luxury Phoenix resort. In August 2011, Adina officially added another title to her belt, chef.

Resuming her singing career in 2013, Adina entered the studio with a sense of accomplishment. Giving voice to songs like Bad 4 Me, Blasphemy, and her award-winning single Switch. Adina Howard’s chameleon-like nature has given her the ability to seamlessly remain relevant in an ever-changing industry.

Recently celebrating the 25th anniversary of Freak Like Me as well as the success of her new #1 soulful house release Mind Reader with Reel People, Adina Howard continues to turn doubt into disbelief with her staying power. Adina continues to engage crowds with her unique sexy charm and fiery spirit as she travels the world entertaining the masses with her tried and true classics and new hits.
