With twenty albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson has enjoyed an unprecedented across-the-board level of international success, Bryson has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have separate records topping four different charts.
Bryson was among the premier silky-voiced soul artists who emerged as the softer, more sophisticated urban contemporary sound became dominant in the ’70s and’80s. He made hit duets with Natalie Cole, Roberta Flack, Melissa Manchester, and Lea Salonga. Bryson enjoyed more success with “If Ever You’re in My Arms Again,” “Can You Stop the Rain;” “Through the Fire” and “Unconditional Love.” Bryson won his first Grammy® Award in 1992 for his performance of the song “Beauty and the Beast” with Céline Dion. His second Grammy was awarded the following year for “A Whole New World” (Aladdin’s Theme) with Regina Belle, being the only Disney song to make it to the Billboard top 100, and topping it at #1. With his tremendous crossover success, Peabo has transitioned into a world of international acclaim. Peabo Bryson is, at his intimate best, a legendary vocalist offering a timeless mix of pop and soul as only he can.
