NORCROSS, Ga. — World famous Tree Sound Studios and it’s celebrated general manager Mali Hunter hosted an exclusive mini-concert — replete with exotic upscale cuisine for the invited guests — for superstar violinist and singer Lee England Jr. at the musical offices in suburban Atlanta.
With the likes of Terri J Vaughn, Angie Stone, Jasmine Guy, Shanti Das, Kwanza Hall, Loraine Smith, Jonell PR, Ed Lover, WNBA star Angel McCoughtry Romello, Daniel Watson and other celebrities and dignitaries in the building, the capacity crowd quickly discerned why music legend Quincy Jones and NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan have endorsed and are backing the Chicago native.
The evening was sponsored by Courvoisier, Corona, Cholula Hot Sauce, Tree Sound family, friends and media were given a private concert of the rising artist’s work as well as an indepth interview moderated by Hunter.
Another climatic moment in the evening took place when Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall (D-4th Ward) appered (along with his wife Natalie) and made a special announcement. Hall presented Mali Hunter, Groove Chambers and Paul Diaz and the Tree Sound Recording Studios with a proclamation from the city of Atlanta because of all their philanthropic efforts and declared Monday, July 18th National Tree Sound Recording Studio Day.
After being gorged by delicious eats, Hunter facilitated an interview with Lee England, who spoke on how he came to be backed by Michael Jordan as well as how him and Quincy Jones met.
Then England delivered a riveting performance that engendered a roof-rattling ovation from celebrities and fans alike. First delivering an acoustic perform, Lee England played some favorites that people love with his band all while premiering his song, “Change Gon Come” that literally had the audience singing along with him.
