Mother

(NEWARK, NJ) -- SJ Presents The Mother’s Day Good Music Festival with multi-platinum and Grammy Award-Winning iconic performers The Isley Brothers, Keith Sweat, Monica, and SWV at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Friday, May 6 at 8:00pm. 

The Isley Brothers are a Multi-Grammy Award-Winning, Grammy Hall of Fame Inductee, Soul Train, and NAACP Award-Winning, recipient of numerous "Lifetime" honors, the singing (musical) group that started as a vocal trio consisting of brothers O'Kelly Isley Jr., Rudolph Isley, and Ronald Isley in the 1950s.

Keith Sweat, a Billboard®, chart-topping recording artist, performer, and founding influence on the New Jack Swing style. Keith Sweat brings his commanding stage presence and soulful music to audiences worldwide. His debut album, Make It Last Forever sold four million copies spawning two classic R&B hits, "I Want Her" and the title track, "Make it Last Forever." For over twenty years, Sweat's R&B and soul hits have been an influential part of people's most intimate moments. 

Monica, a multi-platinum vocalist, earned chart-topping success as a teenager with her hits "Don't Take It Personal," "The Boy is Mine," "Thought It Was Me" and "So Gone." Witness raw soul at its finest. This singer, songwriter, producer, actress, and entrepreneur performed as a child and became part of a traveling gospel choir at ten. Monica rose to prominence after she signed with Rowdy Records in 1993 and released her debut album, Miss Thang; two years later, she followed it with a series of successful albums, including the global bestseller The Boy Is Mine.

SWV In the '90s, the ladies of SWV—Cheryl "Coko" Clemons, Leanne "Lelee" Lyons, and Tamara "Taj" George—were on top of the music world. From the streets of New York to superstardom, they had a string of top ten R&B hits, including "I'm So Into You," "Right Here," "Downtown," "Weak," and "You're Always On My Mind." With over 15 million albums sold, a Grammy® nomination, an American Music Award nomination, and 11 Billboard Music Awards nominations, SWV is unstoppable.
