R&B Returns to DTLA: Soulful Sundays Live at the Globe Theater

The globe

Sunday’s in Downtown just got a whole lot more soulful thanks to RDMJ Entertainment’s brand-concert series, Soulful Sundays Live, coming to The Globe Theater this fall. 

From October to December, everything we love about R&B will be within the legendary historic Globe Theatre on Broadway shortly after the sun sets, including a grand finale with the return of R&B legend El DeBarge.

“Soulful Sunday events will bring an experience designed to allow fans the enjoyment of seeing the impressive musicianship and solid songwriting by some of music’s greatest legends.” says event producer Randy Lopez who started RDMJ Entertainment in 1995.
