Heineken USA announced today the artist lineup for the return of Heineken Red Star Soul, an original and proprietary series of music events and concert series created by Heineken. The series kicks off on August 15 with a concert hosted by VIBE Magazine and Heineken at Los Angeles’ BOULEVARD3 featuring performances by GRAMMY Award winner Common and debut-breakout star Chrisette Michelle. Following the kick-off concert event in L.A., Heineken Red Star Soul continues throughout the fall, with stops across the U.S. featuring GRAMMY Award winners Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Raphael Saadiq and DJ Jazzy Jeff and Raheem DeVaughn. Respected and recognized for his distinct sound and socially-conscious lyrics, Common’s Heineken Red Star Soul performances coincide with the release of his much-anticipated seventh album “Finding Forever” (July 31 release date). And, after turning heads with her breakout performances during last year’s Heineken Red Star Soul concert series, Chrisette Michelle shot to stardom on the music scene with much critical and fan acclaim. She re-ups with Heineken Red Star Soul and joins Common on the road to feature songs from her major label debut on Def Jam, “I Am” for this ground-breaking concert series.
