Jill Scott, New Edition, Babyface Among Headliners at Holiday Jam Series

Holiday Jam Concert Series

*Presented by Live Nation, the 2nd Annual Holiday Jam Concert Series kicks off November 28th in Philadelphia, PA., and will feature GRAMMY Award-winning and top-selling artists such as Jill Scott, Tyrese, New Edition, and Babyface. Additional performers include SWV and Jazmine Sullivan.

According to a press release, the series launched in 2014 as a sold out show in Philadelphia, and since then, Holiday Jam has grown into a multi-city concert series with shows in Philadelphia, PA, Washington D.C., Hampton, VA and Detroit, MI. Maverick Management partner Shawn Gee created the platform, along with Geoff Gordon from Live Nation, in an effort to celebrate R&B music, highlighting some of the biggest names in the genre while introducing new and emerging talent.

Gee stated, “We noticed the success and phenomenal growth of multi-act radio concerts platforms over the last decade. The concept works so well in the pop and hip-hop genres; we are certain it will be successful in the R&B space as well. Gee says, “The vision is to continue to grow the platform, expanding to 12- 15 markets, creating a platform that showcases the R&B superstar, while at the same time gives much-needed exposure to some of the emerging acts in the space.”

The event has a variety of partners in select markets including iHeart Media, Soul Train Music and Radio One. Past and present performers include Jill Scott, New Edition, Tyrese, Babyface, Kem, Common, Ledesi, Joe, Avery Sunshine, SWV, Jazmine Sullivan, Faith Evans and more.
