BLKBOK’s live, high-energy performance is culturally reflective and seeks to entertain with a live piano-based performance like none you have ever seen before. BLKBOK’s vision is to raise awareness for all, encouraging dialogue and counterpoint in the way we perceive ourselves and the world we live in together.

4:00-5:00 PM | BLKBOK
Born and raised in Detroit, BLKBOK (born Charles Wilson III), grew up in a music-filled house, and by the time he was 8, was winning statewide accolades and competitions. Charles chose the name BLKBOK– an apt reflection of the elements that have contributed to the artist’s identity that symbolizes his colorful journey from pop and hip-hop culture to his critically acclaimed, neo-classical debut album Black Book.
