Inspirational producer and recording artist Slick Ali along with featured artist Sojourner are packing “da house!” They kicked-off their debut tour with a stop in Daytona Beach and an electrifying performance at The Tropicana Field during the Martin Luther King weekend celebration.
Next stop: Cincinnati, Ohio where they’ll headline “The 2014 Family Night Out” on February 22nd.
Slick Ali is the founder and chief executive officer of Slick Ali Music, LLC. He’s a music producer, musician and lyricist. He’s a native of St. Petersburg and graduate of Lakewood High School.
At 17 years old, Slick Ali collaborated with other young artists and released his first mixed tape titled “Upper Classman.” The smash hit CD afforded him performances in local talent shows, high school homecomings and proms.
Sojourner, also known as SoJo, is a native Floridian and a graduate of Pinellas Park High School. In the 1990’s, Sojourner then known as “Dutchess of Defness,” was signed to a Miami based record label. Her first single “Wind it Up,” was produced by DJ Trans. Rainforest Productions’ William Packer featured the single for the movie “Chocolate City.”
In 2002, SoJo’s hit single, “Thick Girl” caught the attention of R&B singer T-Pain and as a result she became his official opening act on tour. These days, the dynamic duo are lifting their voices and bringing cutting edge beats and thought provoking lyrics in the form of Holy Hip-Hop. Their current single, “Stomp out Sin” is a high powered favorite.
“To God be the Glory,” said Slick Ali. “The Lord has given me such an awesome gift and when I committed my music to Glorifying Him, incredible doors were open.”
Sojourner added, “We are so blessed. Slick Ali and I have such great chemistry. He is so talented. It’s like a breath of fresh air, a musical rebirth.”
You can catch The Slick Ali Team, which also includes local artists LaTonja Glenn and Michael Harris, in the coming weeks in Ft. Pierce, Ormond Beach, Lakeland, Atlanta and a spring stop back at home
