The R&B vet and former Gap Band frontman started 2016 with two Grammy nominations: a nod for best traditional R&B performance for "My Favorite Part of You" and another for best R&B album for "Forever Charlie." Last year, Uncle Charlie released his seventh studio effort, Forever Charlie, as well his memoir, I Am Charlie Wilson.

Wilison is the latest hit maker to come out in support of Clinton -- who would become the nation's first female president if elected -- following Katy Perry, Demi Lovato and others. Last October, the "Firework" singer performed a medley of hits and "America the Beautiful" at a rally in Iowa while Lovato brought her hit "Confident" to another Iowa rally in support of Clinton last month.
