The Americana at Brand in Glendale, in partnership with Chris Isaacson Presents, will host a series of weekend concerts featuring the upbeat tunes, every Friday from May 17 to May 31, of current OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network star Jake Simpson. Mr. Simpson will perform live on The Green from 6–9 p.m. singing the best of ‘70s & ‘80s Soul & R&B, as well as his original songs.
Although music has always been a driving force in his life, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network star Jake Simpson more notably began his career in 2003 when he won the top honors in the Adult Singer category on CBS’s Star Search. Jake has recorded, written, and performed with a multitude of artists including Desmond Child, David Archuleta, Adam Lambert, Paula Cole, and most famously on The Oprah Winfrey Show with Stevie Wonder. Most recently, this past summer, Simpson starred in the Roll & Roll revue Arena: Born to Rock at Rolling Stone Los Angeles in Hollywood. Simpson has produced two albums, Star of Wonder and My Song, and recently debuted his new song “I See You” on Oprah’s Where Are They Now? Season 2 on OWN in April 2013, all available on iTunes and CD Baby.
