The CrossRhodes (Raheem DeVaughn & Wes Felton)
Raheem DeVaughn is a multi-Grammy nominated artist and label owner. The son of jazz cellist Abdul Wadud, Maryland-based R&B vocalist Raheem DeVaughn kicked his career into gear with a series of independent releases, aided in part by the cash reward earned from winning a talent contest. Jive became interested, signed him, and released The Love Experience in June 2005. The album peaked within the Top 50 of the Billboard 200 album chart, with the singles "You" and "Guess Who Loves You More" regularly spun on some of the more adventurous R&B stations across the U.S. Love Behind the Melody followed in January 2008. Its first single, "Woman," was his biggest hit yet and was nominated for a 2008 Grammy in the category of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. A year later, "Customer" was nominated for Best R&B Song. Led by the late 2009 single "Bulletproof," featuring Ludacris, DeVaughn's The Love & War MasterPeace -- featuring much more socially conscious material than the average contemporary R&B release -- surfaced in March 2010, debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200, and received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album. He also was nominated for Centric and Image Awards. DeVaughn then went independent with typically sprawling albums like A Place Called Love Land (September 2013) and Love Sex Passion (February 2015). Recently, DeVaughn has also established a nonprofit name LoveLife Foundation, starred in the hit play Love Jones, and revamped his conscious hip-hop soul group The CrossRhodes.
Wes Felton is studied at School Without Walls and Carnegie Mellon University. He is per se a Kennedy Center, Arena Stage, and NBTF alum too because he has graced those stages with regularly over his years as a singer/actor/writer/producer.

His live music performance experience extends from Lollapallooza, Apollo Theater, to Europe, Japan plus concerts with Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def, De La Soul, Meshell N'degeocello and UK legend Omar. Felton has been a part of a tremendous number of major CD projects with a diverse array of entertainers including Chris Rock, Prince Paul, and Raheem Devaughn - a comic, hip-hop icon, and soul singer, respectively. Complex Magazine crowned “the future folk-soul hero” by for his vocals.

Clearly he is no stranger to microphone or the stage, he has television success being a part of BET's hit American talk show for youth. After college, Wes Felton & Malcolm Jamal Warner starred in BET''s world premier movie: Multitudes of Mercies. His artistic reel keeps rolling as Wes, now picks up the camera himself to produce and direct an underground film and crates of creative videos. The writer and Heineken Red Star committee are on point declaring him "a renaissance artistic force" in our nation's capital.

Currently, Wes Felton and Raheem DeVaughn duo collaborated and are releasing a new album in 2017 called Footprints on the Moon. Meanwhile, you can catch Wes in performance around the country or in a video he directed and cameo'd in for Concord recording artists, Ben Williams.
