Executive Vice President and Provost
Born in Gainesville, Florida, in 1948 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Charles spent the better part of his childhood living on the streets. One of the more optimistic moments of his childhood came in 1962, when his sister took him to see James Brown at The Apollo. Brown's energy formed a lasting impression on Charles. He was discovered by Daptone Records performing a James Brown act and collaborated with the band The Bullets (later they disbanded to become The Budos Band) to release a few singles. After more recording and playing his first album No Time for Dreaming is now out on Dunham Records. In the meantime, Charles has been touring with The Menahan Street Band and honing his passion as a singer and an entertainer. If you know Charles today, then you know one of the most loving, humble, honest and genuine human beings you will ever know. Charles Bradley spent most of his life dreaming for a better one, an and now there is no more time for dreaming, just time for singing, dancing and loving.
