-- A portion of proceeds will go to Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman Universities --

                                               Cuba Gooding, Sr.

 Cuba Gooding, long-time lead vocalist of the legendary Grammy-nominated R&B/pop ensemble The Main Ingredient, will present two "Sweet Soul of the 70's" benefit concerts at the Bob Carr Theater, formerly the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center in downtown Orlando on Thursday, Nov. 20 and Friday, Nov. 21, 2014. Both shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Artists that will perform include, Cuba Gooding & The Main Ingredient (Everybody Plays the Fool), Peaches & Herb (Reunited), Bloodstone (Natural High), Delfonics (La Means I Love You), and Harold Melvin's Blue Notes (The Love I Had). JoJo, radio personality from Star 94.5 and comedian Tight Mike, will co-host both shows. Tickets are on sale now at $80, $120, and $150 (VIP).

A portion of the proceeds from both concerts will be donated to Florida A&M University and Bethune-Cookman University. Both school's football teams will battle that weekend in the famed Florida Classic. Partnering with Gooding to promote the two concerts are the City of Orlando, Cox Media Group Orlando, and The Bob Carr Theater. "It's vital that I find ways to help the young people at both FAMU and B-CU succeed," said Gooding, who lives in Flagler Beach, Florida. "I'm aware of the historic significance of these great Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the contributions they've made to the world. So, I feel that bringing historic recording artists to Orlando to help uplift the two historic universities is the right thing to do."

Gooding is no stranger to making history. As lead vocalist of The Main Ingredient for more than four decades, he has charted such hit songs as Everybody Plays the Fool, Just Don't Want to be Lonely, Spinning Around (I Must be Falling in Love), You've Been My Inspiration, I'm so Proud, Rolling Down a Mountain Side, Happiness is Just Around the Bend, and more. As the spokesperson for Time Life's Sweet Soul of the 70s' national and international infomercials, Gooding was called "The Ambassador of Sweet Soul of the 70s music."

Joining Gooding in Orlando are other legendary recording artists, inclusive of Peaches & Herb (Let's Fall in Love, Love is Strange, Shake Your Groove Thing, I Pledge My Love, and their No. 1 worldwide hitReunited), Bloodstone (Never Let You Go, Outside Woman, We Go a Long Way Back, and their signature song, Natural High, which reached No. 10 on the Pop Chart), Harold Melvin's Blue Notes (If You Don't Know Me By Now, The Love I Lost, Wake Up Everybody, Bad Luck, and their No. 1 single,Hope That We Can Be Together Soon), and Grammy-winning recording artists The Delfonics (La La Means I Love You, Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time, Hey Love).
