Keith Sweat to Perform at Wind Creek Wetumpka

By Wind Creek Hospitality


WETUMPKA, AL – (06/27/2022) Chart-topping Pop and R&B artist Keith Sweat will take the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel (WCW) Entertainment Center stage on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at 8pm. Tickets are available for purchase at ticketmaster.com and the Essentials Gift Shop, located inside Wind Creek Wetumpka.

New York native Keith Sweat has made trailblazing contributions to the Pop and R&B genre with a career spanning over two decades. Keith’s debut and now classic album Make It Last Forever sold more than three million copies, producing four R&B hit singles, including “I Want Her,” which also landed at #5 on the Pop charts. The album stats also include a nomination for the 1989 Soul Train Best R&B/Urban Contemporary Song of the Year award. Keith Sweat has delivered five straight #1 albums, selling a worldwide total of 25 million records. His self-titled 1996 effort, Keith Sweat, gained quadruple platinum status. His critically acclaimed collaboration with fellow superstars Gerald Levert and Johnny Gill on the double platinum LSG, was launched a decade after he first landed in the music business.

Sweat has also thrived as one of Atlanta’s first record industry moguls, building his own recording studio and discovering new artists such as Silk and Kut Klose–signing both multi-platinum groups to his Keia Record label. Sweat has become one of Atlanta’s leading mentors for young talent, its principle purveyor of R&B music. The unflappable Sweat points to his consistency as the key to his success and achievement of a dozen top ten R&B singles including seven #1’s, four top five Pop singles and frequenting Billboards Top Charts.

After being named Favorite Male R&B/Soul Artist by the American Music Awards in 1997, Sweat celebrated his longevity with his 1998’s aptly titled album, Still in the Game. His 2008 album Just Me made waves on radio and endorsed his claims to remain “in the game.” The state of Georgia authenticated Keith Sweat’s extraordinary talent in the music business with a coveted induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2008. Following the award, he released his tenth studio album, Ridin' Solo, in 2010.

Like the steady beat of his up-tempo hits and tantalizing ballads, Keith Sweat remains relevant– recently landing the #11 spot on Georgia Informer’s list of the 20 Greatest R&B/Soul cd’s of all time for his epic album Make It Last Forever.
