Town Hall Symphony Hall and The Phoenix Newspaper are pleased to announce their media partnership for the upcoming Take 6 concert on July 20th at Birmingham’s iconic Town Hall.
Ten time Grammy award winners Take 6 will make their welcome return to Birmingham when they perform at Birmingham Town Hall on 20 July for their only full UK show of 2018.
Heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!”, Take 6 is the quintessential a cappella group and model for vocal genius.
Audiences can look forward to hearing six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop.
With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognized as the pre-eminent a cappella group in the world.
Speaking about the partnership Daniel Riley, Assistant Editor of The Phoenix Newspaper said; “The Phoenix Newspaper is honoured to be Media Partners with THSH for Take 6’s iconic return to Birmingham. We are the UK’s only positive non-biased publication that is a staunch supporter of inclusion.
“Our ethos is to connect communities and inspire a new generation and we pride ourselves as being the only publication that is accepted in all churches and other faith-led establishments.
“Our aim and objective is to showcase all that is good from all communities for a greater understanding of those around us, in particular the 53 nations that make up the Commonwealth, breaking down barriers where there should be none.
“This is why we know that The Phoenix Newspaper is the perfect vehicle for this event with our links and experience within the Entertainment industry through our sister publication Street Cred Magazine who has dealt with the likes of Destiny’s Child, Quincy Jones, Puff Daddy, Teddy Riley, Whitney Houston, Lauren Hill, David Bowie and Iman to name a few, over the 21 years of its existence.
“Take 6 are a phenomenal force with 10 Grammy Awards under their belts, and we are looking forward to them bringing their amazing brand of a cappella, honed over 30+ years in the business to Birmingham.
“With legends like Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder not just as collaborators, but as friends and even mentors, this is one group that you would be crazy to miss out on. Make sure you get your tickets NOW for this fantastic evening!”
Since its inception 7 years ago, The Phoenix Newspaper has been championing unity and the connecting of communities, giving people a live and let live attitude with a non-biased approach to organisations, individuals and places.
The paper has a firm and steadfast commitment to promoting positive, objective and informative news and is dedicated to tackling the real issues that affect the multi-cultural communities in Birmingham, West Midlands, and nationwide.
Director of Sales and Marketing at Town Hall Symphony Hall, Richard Loftus said;
“My first interaction with this national multicultural newspaper was at their seventh anniversary, where The Phoenix’s ability to bring people together was evident by the audience alone.
“I hope that with The Phoenix Newspaper’s support, this concert from Take 6 will do just that – bring people across Birmingham together through a cappella gospel music, so they can spread good news through song.”
Take 6 will perform at Town Hall on Friday 20 July at 7:30pm. Tickets are priced £28, including £3 ticket commission.
