American soul star Aloe Blacc performs at Pine Cliffs Summer Gala

Aloe Blacc, the American soul singer who rose to fame with hit singles like ‘I Need a Dollar’ and ‘The Man’, is to be the guest performer at Pine Cliffs Summer Gala, to be held on August 6 at Pine Cliffs Golf Academy in Albufeira.

Blacc, 37, has been making music since 1995, mixing R&B, jazz, soul and hip-hop into an inimitable style.

His breakthrough hit ‘I Need a Dollar’ from the 2010 record Good Things helped propel Blacc’s career into what it is today.

He has since produced a UK no.1 single, ‘The Man’, and an incredible successful collaboration with Avicii that resulted in the hugely popular ‘Wake Me Up’.

Blacc’s latest album, 2013’s Lift Your Spirit, saw the artist team up with some of the most well-known contemporary producers, including Pharrell Williams, DJ Kahlil and production team Rock Mafia.

He will now add his name to the list of famous artists like Joe Cocker, Lionel Richie, Ne-Yo and Leona Lewis who have all been given headlining honour at Pine Cliffs.

This year, there are a number of ticket options available.

For those who simply want to see the concert, prices range from €30 to €75.

There’s a Platinum ticket, which includes a welcome cocktail, a buffet dinner and open bar at the Yakuza restaurant and a gift for €345.

Finally, the Diamond ticket offers a welcome cocktail, a seated dinner and open bar at Yakuza, and a gift for €595.

Tickets are for sale at Fnac stores and www.fnac.pt, or at the Pine Cliffs resort and its website www.summergala.pinecliffs.com
