The Sol Kitchen hosts the “I Am Music Fest 2012″ at the Belk Theater featuring singer/songwriter extraordinaire India Arie with special guests Mint Condition.

It been 3 years since the soul bird visited Charlotte, and the addition of R&B super-group Mint Condition promises to be a night to remember.

According to The Soul Kitchen other acts will be named in the upcoming weeks. We think that the present line-up is already pretty awesome, that we’ve put together our Top 10 Reasons why we can’t miss this concert.

  1. India is Awesome! Her Twitter page says it all, she’s an “artist & explorer on a mission to spread love healing peace and joy through words and music.”
  2. Mint Condition represents a time when musicians were actually able to play instruments; and these talented brothers can excel in any genre; jazz, R&B, funk, and rock and roll.
  3. Chirl Girl will be hosting!
  4. India Arie’s meaningful lyrics have an integrity, diversity, and a profound truthfulness that many of today’s artist’s lack.
  5. With mega-hits like “Breakin’ My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes);” “What Kind of Man Would I Be;” and “U Send Me Swingin;” on the roster how can you resist?
  6. The Belk Theater promises an atmosphere of intimate sophistication. It will be easy to immerse yourself in the melodic grooves of India or Mint Condition here.
  7. The Sol Kitchen has proven time and time again that they really love “real music.” After consistently bringing great shows to Charlotte for over 9 years you know their first music festival promises to be a memorable event.
  8. “Brown Skin;” “I Am Not My Hair;” “Back to the Middle;” “Therapy;”and “Little Things;” are just a few of the hits that guarantee you a great time with this talented songstress.
  9. Mint Condition’s live performances are legendary!
  10. The combination of India Arie & Mint Condition is “grow folks” music at its best.  Grab a babysitter, get a new outfit, and treat yourself. You deserve it!
