The FREE family-friendly event will take place on Rosemary Ave. and 8th Street across from the Sunset Lounge (now closed for renovation). Heart & Soul Fest invites residents and visitors to discover West Palm Beach’s Historic Northwest District and experience the true heart and soul of the city while enjoying a day filled with music and fun.
Headlining this year’s event will be Kenny Lattimore, a Grammy-nominated R&B singer/songwriter best known for his Top 10 hits that include “For You,” “Things That Lovers Do,” and “Love Me Back.” The veteran singer, known for his sultry voice, sweet harmonies, and memorable melodies, came on the scene during the 90’s R&B resurgence and has released nine solo albums in a musical career that has spanned over 20 years. The event will also feature popular local bands including the dynamic Valerie Tyson Band and the soulful Andrew Luv and The Franchise Players.
In addition to an outstanding R&B music lineup, the festival offers activities for the entire family with carnival style games, face painting, children’s dance contest, and more. Guests can also partake in a health fair showcasing resources for community members to get fit and stay healthy. Zion Fitness will host various free stay-fit demonstrations for guests including Zumba, spinning, step aerobics, a rock climbing wall, kids’ obstacle course and more.
