Charles Holt is a gifted Broadway actor and dynamic inspirational speaker who shares his message of healing, empowerment, and freedom with audiences around the world. He has starred in some of the most celebrated and spectacular shows in American Theatre history such as Smokey Joe’s Café, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Lion King. He received national acclaim and rave reviews for his multiple character portrayal in one-man stage plays, based on the lives of Richard Wright and WEB Du Bois.
He along with fellow actor, Gerald C. Rivers, is currently touring Martin & Music, a ground breaking theatrical production on the life of Dr. King, the Civil Rights Movement, and the musical ties that served as the binding power that propelled the movement forward. Charles adds guest-starring roles in television and film to his credit, as well as extensive work as a voice-over artist. He tours universities spiritual centers, and correctional centers. He has addressed many groups and organizations including TEDx, Engaged Diversity Leadership Conference, and NCORE (National Conference on Race and Ethnicity). He is an alumni and spokesperson for Boys and Girls Club of America.
On the music front, Charles’ debut album, I Am, garnered rave reviews and was followed by the new classic, Rushing Over Me. Charles has authored two books. His first, Intuitive Rebel, chronicles his journey from small town Tennessee, to the bright lights of Broadway, to his spiritual awakening that lead him into the path of self-discovery. Between Me and Dad, released April 2014, reveals a personal, yet painful account with his father that ultimately halted with a date with courage and a leap into faithful forgiveness and release. At the greatest turn of release, he concludes that freedom stands on every front… for those who are forgiven and for those who forgive.
