Baltimore's Best Street Performer - Charles Lee

Singer Charles Lee - Baltimore Inner HarborOn the way back to the Light Rail tonight, I stopped by the ampitheater at the Inner Harbor to listen to and watch Charles Lee.

I've seen Mr. Lee a few times before here, and he absolutely deserves his title as Baltimore's Best Street Performer.

He performs with a high-end karoke system and top-notch karoke disks (good arrangements, well-performed,) adding his excellent vocal renditions of mostly Motown oldies. There isn't a clunker in his portfolio - they're all classic hits that you gotta just love, and you'll love the way he handles them. In I Can't Get Next To You, he pulls off the neat trick of doing a very credible imitation of each of the five Temptations - quite a vocal range, if you remember that song.

Mr. Lee's website is here.

And if you stop to listen and enjoy him at the Inner Harbor this summer, don't forget to leave a generous tip!
