August 26, 2010 Verizon Wireless Amphitheater St. Louis – Anthony Hamilton Headlined the Budweiser Superfest, which also featured Kem, Jahiem, Rahiem DeVaughn, and many others. Hamilton is a R&B stud, that perhaps by design, likes to fly just beneath the radar of superstardom. A Grammy winning artist in 2009 (with Al Green), Hamilton is consistantly nominated in vocal categories by Award shows BET, Critics Choice, Image Awards, Vibe, and Soul Train. A solo artist, and collaborator (Santana, Young Jeezy, Boney James, Busta Rhymes, 2Pac, and even John Rich from country’s Big & Rich), he strikes me as a guy that shows up at the studio, nails his contribution in one take, and makes any recording better. I was introduced to Anthony Hamilton for the first time at this show, and was very impressed with his performance, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to photograph him.
