Beyoncé and Solange: Hope for the Holidays to premiere exclusively on Fuse Dec 21

Fuse celebrates the holidays with a Knowles sisters’ intimate hometown performance – “Beyoncé and Solange: Hope for the Holidays.” The concert will benefit the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to aid Texas victims of Hurricane Ike through the Survivor Foundation, a Knowles family charity helping people in need. This historic concert will take place at Houston ’s House of Blues on Tuesday, December 9th. The one hour concert special will premiere exclusively on Fuse on Sunday, December 21st, at 10PM ET.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Beyoncé, Solange and the entire Knowles Family to air this momentous concert on Fuse, benefiting the families devastated by Hurricane Ike,” said Matt Farber, EVP, Programming, Development & Digital. “Bringing these two accomplished sisters together on one stage for the first time not only provides our viewers with a great concert, it also gives back to a community in need during challenging times.”

“It is an honor for our family to be able to give back to our hometown with a holiday concert that will air on Fuse,” said father and manager Mathew Knowles. “Tina grew up in Galveston and still has family and friends there and we’re fortunate to bring Beyoncé and Solange together to support the efforts of The Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund through the Survivor Foundation.”

One of 2008’s most anticipated new album releases, I AM…SASHA FIERCE is Beyoncé’s first studio collection since her Grammy®-winning multi-platinum-selling album, B’Day. Beginning her career as a member of Destiny’s Child, her first full-length solo debut album, 2003’s Dangerously in Love, went multi-platinum and garnered five Grammy® wins. She went on to tour internationally to sold-out arenas, starred in “Dream Girls” and most recently played the part of R&B legend Etta James in Darnell James’ “Cadillac Records” opening in theatres nationwide in December.

Solange, the classically trained dancer got her start by traveling the world as a backup dancer for (her big sister’s group) Destiny’s Child. She released her first solo album Solo Star on Columbia Records and after taking some time off for marriage and motherhood, Solange is back with her sophomore album. Capturing a time when music was melodic and soulful, but with a modern twist, Sol-Angel & the Hadley St. Dreams dropped in August 2008.

Solange Is Top 10

The multi-talented rising star, Solange (Singer, Songwriter, Artist, Choreographer, Video Director, Executive Producer and more), makes a splash with the release of her new album, SoL-AngeL and The Hadley St. Dream (Music World Entertainment/Geffen Records), entering the Top 10 (#9) on “The Billboard 200 Chart.” The album is Top 5 (#3) on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart and Top 10 (#9) on the “Billboard Comprehensive” chart.

Released on August 26th and musically compared to the likes of Gnarles Barkley, Little Jackie, Dusty Springfield and Amy Winehouse, Solange’s SoL-AngeL and The Hadley St. Dreams has already produced two hit singles: “I Decided” and “Sandcastle Disco.” “I Decided” has enjoyed the top spot on industry charts including, #1 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales” chart (currently #9), #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Dance Singles Sales” chart (currently #4) and reached #2 on Billboard’s “Hot Singles Sales” chart. In addition, “I Decided” has been #1 on iTunes’ R&B Chart for 9 weeks in a row while “Sandcastle Disco” has been #1 “Most Viewed Video” on MTV.com.

The album reviews are pouring in from the critics:

* LA Times tells us that SoL-AngeL is “an appealingly freewheeling set of lightly psychedelic soul music that shares the retro-futuristic vibe of Gnarles Barkley”
* NY Times says “it’s impressive”
* USA Today says Solange is “moving in a good direction”
* Entertainment Weekly heralds the album as “Tasty” (B+)
* US Weekly gives Sol-AngeL three out of four stars
* Houston Chronicle gives Solange three and ½ out of four stars and says there are interesting twists in every song
* Giant Magazine says its “[Solange’s] candor that makes [her music] so relatable”
* Newsweek calls Solange “Savvy”
* Time Out NY says “The new disc’s mix of retro-cool beats, head-trip electronica and straight-talking sass relocates Solange somewhere in the vicinity of Gnarls Barkley (whose Cee-Lo Green co-wrote two cuts), Raphael Saadiq and Little Jackie, with admiring nods to Dusty Springfield and Martha Reeves.”
* Perez Hilton writes he is “totally feeling the new Solange”
* The Boston Globe states that “There’s no way after this [release] that Solange won’t be taken on her own terms because this sister can sing”

On SoL-AngeL and The Hadley St. Dreams, Solange enlisted the who’s who of hot producers and songwriters. The dream team includes: The legendary award-winning Lamont Dozier who teams up with the newest purveyor of Soul, Mark Ronson on the sure to be classic, “6 O’clock Blues,” the forever eclectic Cee-Lo lends a handwriting hand on the Jack Splash produced 2nd single, “Sandcastle Disco,” the constant hit-making Pharrell Williams writes the first single “I Decided” with production from The Neptunes and remix by the Freemasons, and the formidable chart-topping Lil Wayne shares the spotlight on “ChampagneChronicKnightCap.” Other dream makers on SoL-AngeL and The Hadley St. Dreams include Boards of Canada, Soulshock & Karlin, Shea Taylor, Bama Boyz, Bilal and more.
