R&B and Soul music dates back to the 1940s and 1950s and both have their origins in gospel and blues. Generally, New York City, Chicago, and other urban areas are known to be the birthplaces of soul. R&B, on the other hand, was originally created for the lack of a better description for the genre. Soul music is known for its intense vocals as well as its spiritual and religious roots, while contemporary R&B typically has a more poppy sound with smooth vocals.
Legendary soul artists include Ray Charles, James Brown, and later Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight. Today's R&B scene is shaped by musicians such as Jill Scott, Chris Brown, and Mary J. Blige. Hear the best of soul and R&B by getting Heatwave tickets from TicketNetwork today!
