Wearing heart-shaped sunglasses and a snazzy red suit adorned in roses, Oklahoma native Charlie Wilson delivered a winning performance Tuesday night as the musical guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

As previously reported, the former Gap Band frontman and successful R&B solo artist sang his funky new ballad "Forever Valentine" on the ABC late-night program. 


Also as previously reported, R&B superstar Bruno Mars provides back-up vocals on the track, which Mars also co-produced with his production team the Stereotypes and D’Mile. They all co-wrote the song with Wilson, Micah Powell and Seth Reger. 

“Forever Valentine” is Wilson’s first new solo music since the 2017 release of his album "In It To Win It."

As previously reported, Tuesday night's TV showcase follows Uncle Charlie's appearance on Sunday's Grammy Awards, where he and Boyz II Men provided some sweet, smooth harmonies on winning rapper Tyler, The Creator's earth-shaking performance of "Earfquake."
