Heads know Atlanta-born singer-songwriter CeeLo Green is more than just a genre-bending wordsmith. The former member of hip hop’s Goodie Mob, and one half of the enigmatic duo Gnarls Barkley, now makes his way to San Jose for Music in the Park.
Thomas DeCarlo Burton, better known as the Indomitable Showman CeeLo Green, will headline the Friday, Aug. 18 show. Before he became a Grammy-winning recording artist, the producer was simply Carlo.
Climbing to the top of international charts as half of the enigmatic duo Gnarls Barkley and known as a charismatic judge and mentor for emerging performers on NBC’s The Voice, CeeLo has returned to his urban and alternative R&B roots, engaging audiences with prolific retro-soul releases including “Lead Me,” “Doing It All Together” and “People Watching.”
