Celebrating the joy and romance of Valentine’s Day with her signature blend of soul and grace, acclaimed Baltimore R&B vocalist Alton McClain Scarborough will perform a spirited, retrospective mix of hit R&B favorites, live in concert at the Baltimore Museum of Art’s Meyerhoff Auditorium, Thursday, February 14th at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $45 each and can be purchased online at InstantSeats.com. For additional information, please call 410-655-8198, or visit altonmcclainscarborough.com.

A versatile performer, her multi-faceted set will include “It Must Be Love,” the Top 10 R&B hit she made famous as lead singer of the girl group Alton McClain & Destiny, as well as some of pop music’s most iconic hits, (Anita Baker’s “Giving You The Best That I Got,” Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day,” George Benson’s “Love Ballad,” Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Can’t Hide Love”) and more, all composed by her late husband, Grammy-winning, songwriter-producer Skip Scarborough. Recently, Alton performed in London where fans came from all over Europe to see her perform many of her most memorable hits from her three popular recordings with Destiny, along with a special tribute to Skip Scarborough and his music.

Known for her unique vocal styling and versatility, Alton toured over the years with such top acts as Teddy Pendergrass, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Chic, Peabo Bryson, The Gap Band and Millie Jackson, among others and performed on national television. She launched her singing career in Baltimore with her first hit “Come Back Baby.” Produced by legendary R&B drummer Bernard Purdie, the single took off and immediately sold over 20,000 copies. Upon moving to Los Angeles, she formed Alton McClain & Destiny, whose chart-topping debut album on Polydor Records included the now famous Billboard Top 40 hit “It Must Be Love.” As destiny would have it, she subsequently met Skip Scarborough while he was producing the group’s third album Gonna’ Tell the World. Eventually, he became her husband and longtime musical collaborator.

Today, Alton is embracing her musical legacy by working on a cover album of Skip Scarborough’s music and renewing her own artistic destiny and exploration with her current musical performances. In Skip’s honor, she founded The Scarborough Foundation and subsequently launched a scholarship program that provides scholarships to Maryland public school students gifted in the performing arts, (music, dance, theatre). The application period for scholarships runs from the first week in February to April 15th.
