80’s R&B star will make audiences ‘Sweat’ in January

Singer Keith Sweat set to take the stage at Cache Creek

BROOKS, Calif. – Harlem born R&B singer Keith Sweat worked his way from an ordinary 9-to-5 job at the New York Stock Exchange to super stardom in the late 80s. Working during the day and singing in nightclubs at night, he was discovered in 1987 and released his debut album “Make It Last Forever,” which went on to sell four million copies.

The biggest hit from this album, "I Want Her," hit #1 on the R&B charts and #5 on the Pop charts and the title track from the album went on to hit #2 on the R&B charts. Sweat continued to chart fairly well with his sophomore album, “I'll Give All My Love to You,” which hit #3 on the Billboard 200 chart, and “Keep It Comin’,” which debuted in the Top 20 of the album chart. Sweat released subsequent albums “Get Up On It,” and his self-titled fifth album, “Keith Sweat” which hit #5 on the Billboard 200. From that album, the single "Twisted" hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and "Nobody" also hit at #3.

In the years that followed, Sweat managed and produced several other artists in addition to touring nation-wide. Fans of his distinct R&B style will have the chance to hear Sweat perform when he makes a stop at Cache Creek Casino Resort’s intimate Club 88 on Saturday, January 16th at 8 p.m.
