R&B soul singer Keith Sweat brings his unique sound and timeless classics to the Greensboro Coliseum as the headliner of Spring Fest. Sweat released his debut album Make It Last Forever in November of 1987, and sold 4 million copies. The biggest hit from this album was the chart-topping "I Want Her," while the title track from the album also hit No. 2 on the R&B charts. Sweat continued to see chart success with his sophomore album I'll Give All My Love To You (1990), which hit No. 3 on the Billboard charts. In 1996, Keith Sweat, Sweat’s self-titled fifth album, hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200. The single "Twisted" hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Nobody" peaked at No. 3.
Joining Sweat at this year’s Spring Fest is Ginuwine. No stranger to stardom, Ginuwine first emerged on the music scene in 1996 with his multi-platinum disc, The Bachelor. “Pony,” the daring first single off the album, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks for two weeks in late 1996, and reached No. 6 on Billboard's Hot 100.
Spring Fest also features R&B’s multi-platinum group Dru Hill. SisQo, Nokio, Jazz, and new member Tao equate the perfect musical blend of soulful R&B, rock, hip-hop and romance. The ultra-talented foursome are armed and ready to re-emerge into the music industry and take the world by storm with their unforgettable performances and most recent album InDRUpendence Day (2010), which reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart.
Equally rooted in gospel, soul, and hip-hop, 112 was the first R&B group to emerge from Sean "Puffy" Combs' Bad Boy roster. Not only was the group's eponymous 1996 debut popular, but the group could also be heard on records by such Bad Boy artists as Mase and the Notorious B.I.G. "Only You," the group's debut single, was released in 1996 and climbed to No. 3 on the R&B charts.
Spring Fest will be hosted by legendary R&B artist Slick Rick, who released his first solo album in 1988. Titled The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, it reached No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop charts, and was one of the first hip-hop records to go platinum."
