Legendary singer Charlie Wilson stopped by Majic 102.1 studios to talk about his new album, his battle with prostate cancer and why it’s so important for men to get tested – especially since African American men develop the disease 60% more often than white men…and are twice as likely to die from it than other groups.
“I was diagnosed in 2008 but I am now cancer-free…once I received a national platform I wanted to speak in the communities about having this conversation in your home.”

When asked about how he maintains his longevity in the music industry, Charlie details how it contributes from his passion to keep releasing records, staying healthy and give fans a great show!
“My band is really young so everybody has the energy level that I require. We level off at the top so if you don’t have the energy, you can’t be in my band.”
