Anthony Hamilton / Heather Headley / Van Hunt 

Friday, April 28, at 8 p.m. The Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard)

He finally broke through in 2003 with the album Comin' from Where I'm From, but Tarheel crooner Anthony Hamilton came to success the hard way. His decade-long trek included one great album (XTC) that vanished on impact, another (Soulife) unreleased until last year and a promising career reduced to backing D'Angelo. Even after Comin' gained him a Grammy nomination (and some good luck at last), Hamilton promptly blew out his voice recording the follow-up, 2005's Ain't Nobody Worryin'. However, his throat recovered — and that album is another Southern-soul-soaked hit. Hear Hamilton as he appears along with former Broadway star Heather Headley's elegant R&B and Van Hunt's Princely funk-rock.
