Comedian and SEMA Show crowd favorite Sinbad—along with up-and-coming soul and R&B artist Curtis Harding—will entertain guests at the 2014 SEMA Show Industry Awards Banquet. The annual industry celebration, taking place Thursday, November 6, features dinner and a presentation of several industry awards, including the SEMA Person of the Year, WD of the Year and Rep Agency of the Year.
Sinbad is internationally known for his starring appearances in hit movies, such as Jingle All the Way, playing opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger; Houseguest, co-starring the late Phil Hartman; and his film debut Necessary Roughness, where he performed none of his own stunts. He has starred in the television sitcom, “A Different World” and his own series, “The Sinbad Show.”
Versatile vocalist Curtis Harding fuses the passion and intensity of classic soul and R&B with the attitude of indie rock, and has made a name for himself in both rock and R&B circles. Born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan, Harding settled in Atlanta. Harding's vocals have appeared on several remixes from OutKast, and he became part of Cee Lo Green's team, working with him as a back-up vocalist on the road, adding vocal tracks to albums and co-writing material with Green. Harding’s acclaimed full-length effort, Soul Power, appeared in the spring of 2014. Check out Harding on YouTube.
