Soul artist Freddie Jackson will make an appearance at the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center this summer, the York City venue announced today.

Jackson topped the R&B charts in the '80s and '90s with hits such as "You Are My Lady," "Have You Ever Loved Somebody?" and "Jam Tonight."

He will perform as part of his Finer With Time Tour at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 2. The show will also feature performances from York R&B artist T-Shaw and Camden, N.J.-based group Ju-Taun.

A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the H.O.P.E. for Cancer Patients & Families organization, based in New Freedom.

Tickets prices range from $51 to $71 and are on sale now for Strand members. The general public can purchase tickets starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 1.
