"How Sweet It Is" - A Tribute to Marvin Gaye
In 1996, while performing with his group, The Headliners, he was introduced to the legendary Motown group, The Miracles.
Although bass is Tee's instrument of choice, he is equally adept on keyboard and percussion. An acoustic guitar made it's way home to his studio where Tee records original music for his independent label - Hitline Records, resulting in his first CD, "Smooth Eyes" and his current CD, "More Than One Night"
Honing his craft has certainly paid off and the millennium has been a whirlwind of activity for Tee. His time is spent performing with The Miracles. He has also performed as one of the lead vocalists for Grammy award-winner Damon Harris's Temptations' Tribute - traveling from one corner of the plantet to the other, much to the happiness of each and every audience.
After performing with Brenda Holloway and Kim Weston at the St. Louis Library Festival, an idea for a tribute to Motown great, Marvin Gaye began to formulate. Although many years passed, the idea never left and 2005 brought the idea to life. Having found the right blend of musicians and vocalists willing to undertake such a project, Tee has been able to bring back the sounds of one of the most revered singers of the Motown Era. From the early days of "Hitchhike" and "How Sweet It Is" and duets "It Takes Two" and "Your Precious Love" into the dark years of "What's Going On" and ending with "Sexual Healing", this tribute show covers the musical career of Marvin Gaye from start to finish.
April 7, 2007 - Tee had the opportunity to perform with Ms. Kim Weston at the opening of Marvin Gaye Park. Special shout outs to:
