Kevin & Tanishia Hamilton of Southwest Soul Circuit will once again be performing for 2nd Saturdays Downtown, this time at the Rialto Theatre!
Kevin Hamilton is a product of the musically rich community of Dallas, TX where he started singing in the church choir at the age of 5. His Godgiven gift made room for him as a leader and a soloist as early as 12 years old. Kevin started formal vocal training as a Baritone at the age of 15 where he became proficient at singing in Italian, Liturgical Latin, and spirituals while continuing to sing in the church.
After joining the US Air Force, Kevin started playing the piano in order to accompany himself during performances. Because of his strong musical ear as a singer, he quickly learned to play the piano. In the course of three years Kevin became the musical director of an African-American Theater Troop and later was asked to complete a one man tour in Japan. Kevin traveled throughout Japan as he performed to sold out audiences.
Kevin furthered his vocal training at Tennessee State University where he served as the Assistant Director of the University Choir. Transferring to the University of Arizona 1999 gave Kevin his first opportunity to perform in opera. With a principle role as Maseto in Mozart's Don Giovanni, Kevin began to learn the art of stage performance continuing on to more roles in opera and musical theatre.
Rounding off Kevin's accomplishments, Kevin founded Hamilton Entertainment in Tucson, AZ to provide a place where he could spread his wings as a play writer, band leader, music teacher, and music producer. Never losing his connection with his roots, Kevin has served as Minister of Music for numerous churches in Nashville, TN; Tucson, AZ; and Mesa, AZ.
Currently, Kevin is the Minister of Music for the Southern Arizona Missionary Baptist District Association, Musical Director for the GMWA Tucson chapter choir, resident artist and interim choir director for Casas Church which is the largest church in Tucson, and is founder of the Southwest Soul Circuit which tours through Dallas, Albuquerque, El Paso, Sierra Vista, Tucson, Mesa, and San Diego bringing top rate musical events.
