Charlie Tate Jr.

Film & Music Producer . Actor . Songwriter . Lead Guitarist . ASCAP

Although born just outside Chicago Illinois, the city that brought us “Electric” Blues, Charlie Tate Jr. spent more than half of his career performing Gospel Music with world renown Gospel acts. Charlie picked up the guitar in the latter part of his 13th year after suffering a deep, personal loss. He has since credited his ability to play guitar and create music, as a great source of his healing. His healing was evident to those around him a few short months later, when Charlie was called into musical worship at his family’s Joliet church. After a time, he was approached and recruited to tour, as lead guitarist, with The Miracles, Charlie was just 14. He later confessed, playing those dates knowing only 2 chords; but the way he played those chords was the topic of conversation. Charlie went on to tour over the next 20 plus years with: Grammy Nominated, Trinnitee 57, Grammy Award Winner Kim Burrell, Stella & Dove Award Winners, The Gospel Keynotes, while also playing bass guitar with Sandy Foster’s Blind Boys and, his dream come true, 3X Grammy Award Winners, The Mighty Clouds of Joy; receiving an accolade at the 1996 Olympic Games, recorded 2 Live CDs and a live video with the latter. Branching out into R&B, Charlie also performed with Rico Love and laid lead guitar tracks with G Womack. Much of his body of work as a Recording Artist and Music Producer continues to be heard, in syndication, on Network TV’s most celebrated shows, including, early millennium hits, CSI Miami and Las Vegas Nights. His entrepreneurial spirit ever present, Charlie has also experienced a great deal of success in business, outside of the entertainment industry. Recently bringing his business know-how back to the Arts, his newest venture Cment Global LLC, has him signed as the production company’s first artist. Also  currently in production rotation, “Tha Referee”, staring Charlie plus one or more of his hilarious characters and his highly-anticipated CD are near.

In just over one year of business, Charlie has produced on four films, with number 5 coming soon:
