DETROIT -- A unique Detroit artist with a distinct sound and flair will put an exclamation point on the first day of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. Detroit R&B singer Dwele will bring his smooth vibe to the MotorCity Casino Hotel Entertainment Stage on Friday evening, May 31 after the furious on-track action has concluded on the opening day of activity at Belle Isle Park.

Dwele will take to the stage at 5:45 p.m. ET Friday and fans will be able to experience the local artist’s music as part of Free Prix Day at the Grand Prix. Keeping alive a Grand Prix tradition in Detroit, everyone will be admitted to the Raceway at Belle Isle Park free of charge on Friday.

Born and raised in West Detroit, Dwele – born Andwele Gardner – has released six albums with the latest in 2012 entitled Greater Than One. Some of his soulful hits include “What Profit,” “What’s Not to Love,” “I’m Cheatin” and “Find a Way.” He has also been featured on two Grammy-winning singles with Kanye West, “Power” and “Flashing Lights.” A multi-talented former student of Detroit’s Wayne State University, Dwele is not only a talented singer but he’s an established songwriter, producer and musician as well. After learning to play the piano at age six and adding the trumpet, bass and guitar to his skill set, Dwele recorded his first song, “Rize,” in his bedroom. He has continued to build his career using his jazz, R&B and hip-hop influences to collaborate with some of today’s top artists.

“Dwele is a true Detroit success story and we’re very excited to bring his unique sound to the MotorCity Casino Hotel Stage on Friday night at the Grand Prix,” said Bud Denker, Chairman of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. “With some great action on track Friday and Dwele highlighting a strong entertainment lineup, fans will have a terrific experience on Free Prix Day.”

Dwele’s performance will follow a full opening day of track activity featuring practice and qualifying for the IZOD IndyCar Series, the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series and the Pirelli World Challenge Series on the newly-configured 2.3-mile Belle Isle street circuit.

In addition to Dwele, the MotorCity Casino Hotel Entertainment Stage at the Grand Prix will host 80s rock icon Bret Michaels on Saturday evening and modern-rock band Plain White T’s on Sunday afternoon. Several other local artists will also perform on the stage throughout the weekend.
