The soulful songster is set to take the stage at the Sovereign Center in Reading on Sept. 6 at 7:30 p.m.. The announcement was made Monday morning on the Sovereign Center's Facebook page.

Tickets for the performance will go on sale at the Sovereign Center box office and through Ticketmaster on May 19 at 10 a.m.
