Lets Celebrate Singer & songwriter Ricky Williams Birthday Extravaganza with his a mix of Smooth Jazz, R&B and Soul has stirred deep feelings among his fans who keep coming back for more.
Brought up in New York City, proved to be fertile ground for his music, blind since 6 years old started at 9 on the drums, then began playing the piano at 14 with lessons from blind artist Valerie Capers.
The genesis of his music career was really blessed when he was booked at such notable clubs as The Village Gate in Greenwich Village, The New Cotton Club and many after hour clubs in New York City. To his many credits, he wrote “Misty Morning” for Ollie Woodson’s album, one of the original Temptations. He played Clavinet for Super Star Bennie King for his album “Super Natural”.
