Grammy nominated artist Anthony Hamilton was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hamilton first discovered his talent while singing in his church choir at age ten. He also attended South Mecklenburg High School and sang with their award-winning choir.
In 1993, he left Charlotte and headed to New York City, where he signed with Andre Harrell’s Uptown Records. In 2000, he joined soul singer D’Angelo on tour of the Voodoo album on which he sang backup.
His music brings a soulful richness to R & B music, he’s given us hits like “Comin’ from Where I’m From,” “Charlene,” “Can’t Let Go.” Hamilton is nominated this year for two Grammys, Best R&B Song: “Pray For Me” and Best R&B Album: Back To Love–he also produced the song “Freedom” for the Django:Unchained soundtrack.
Happy birthday Anthony Hamilton.
