Roberson and starring Kelvin Roston Jr., Twisted Melodies is a powerful and intense portrayal of the renowned jazz, blues and soul singer, composer and songwriter, Donny Hathaway. Many people are familiar with Hathaway’s musical genius and his influence on the music of such artists as Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, John Legend and many more. Kelvin Roston Jr., however also takes patrons behind the curtain to reveal a tortured schizophrenic experience through the eyes of this celebrated artist in the ‘70s.
