Narada’s Bio

Among a handful of the most innovative, original and influential artists of our time, Narada Michael Walden’s stature as an authentic musical renaissance man is a matter of record.

Producing Hits for Artists as diverse as Aretha Franklin (including the platinum “Freeway of Love.”), Steve Winwood, Ray Charles, Wynonna Judd, Whitney Houston, George Michael, Mariah Carey, Barbra Streisand, Lionel Ritchie, Lisa Fischer, Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones, Jeff Beck and The Temptations, the EMMY and multi-GRAMMY winner (Producer, Album and Song of The Year) has been at the helm of hit music that spans decades.  His music flows freely from pop, rock and soul, to the rarified realms of jazz, fusion and world music. With Jeff Beck, Narada wrote and played drums on the seminal album “Wired” that earned them both their first Gold Album.  Walden was an integral part of introducing Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey to millions of fans worldwide, producing and writing their breakthrough hits that first brought these divas to the spotlight. Billboard Magazine honored him as one of the Top Ten Producers of all time.

17th Annual Holiday Jam
A Benefit Supporting Music Education for Bay Area Youth

An Invitation to Support Music Education and Opportunities for Kids!

Dear Friends of Narada,

Narada has a vision! It’s about making a difference in the lives of young people through music. And we’re inviting you to help make this happen by joining us for his 17th Annual Holiday Jam on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

Music is inspirational. It awakens and nurtures creativity, love and delight. The Narada Michael Walden Foundation supports and makes available music appreciation and education throughout the Bay Area for young people from all walks of life. We provide opportunities for young artists through grants, scholarships, educational programs, performances, mentorships and collaborations with community organizations.

The Holiday Jam is presented at 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley. This event is a popular, unique and joyous holiday concert where many of the young artists we have worked with will perform with Narada and other professional musicians.

Please join us by becoming a sponsor. We are raising funds for scholarships for deserving young music students to attend the Foundation’s music education workshops and performances. Celebrate the evening with VIP tickets to the pre-show champagne and dessert reception where you will be welcomed by elves and have your photo taken with Santa Narada. Then enjoy reserved seating for a great show!
