Peabo Bryson – Paradise

Peabo Bryson is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter, born in Greenville, South Carolina. He is well known for singing soft-rock ballads (often as a duo with female singers) and his contribution to several Disney animated feature soundtracks.

With almost twenty albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson’s career has gone from strength to strength particularly during the 90’s. Enjoying an unprecedented, across-the-board level of international success, Peabo has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have separate records topping four different charts: “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme)”, a duet with Regina Bell that won an Oscar as “Best Song” in 1992 and earned Peabo a Grammy Award for “Best Pop Vocal by a Duo or Group” topped both the Pop and Adult Contemporary charts; a new recording of the classic musical “THE KING AND I” featuring Peabo and Tony winner Lea Salonga on the song “WE KISS IN A SHADOW” became No. 1 on the Classical Crossover charts; while saxophonist Kenny G’s multi-platinum “BREATHLESS” which included Peabo on “BY THE TIME THIS NIGHT IS OVER” topped the Contemporary Jazz charts and also enjoyed a three-month run as a hit single on the Hot 100 in 1993.

But acclaim and recognition are nothing new for this multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer, born in Greenville, South Carolina. Exposed to music at an early age, Peabo began singing with local bands during his teen years, performing on the famed ‘chitlin’ circuit and gaining the kind of experience that would help prepare him for a solid career as a recording artist and entertainer.

In 1975, Peabo signed with Atlanta-based Bang Records and enjoyed some initial success on the R&B charts with tunes like “I CAN MAKE IT BETTER” and “UNDEGROUND MUSIC.” However, it was after switching to Capitol Records in 1977 that Peabo gained national attention thanks to Top 10 R&B hits like “I’M SO INTO YOU” and “REACHING FOR THE SKY,” the title track for his Capitol debut gold album which also included the classic “FEEL THE FIRE.”

The album Paradise was one of two he issued in 1980 and Peabo was so hot at the time that it did get widespread airplay all over the US. Paradise reached nr. 13 position in the R&B Charts and nr. 79 in the Billboard album hot 200.

Further success followed with the gold album “CROSSWINDS” and Peabo rapidly became one of the most popular headliners, touring nationally throughout the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s. His six-year tenure with Capitol also included major hit duets with Natalie Cole (“GIMME SOME TIME” and “WHAT YOU WON’T DO FOR LOVE”) and Roberta Flack with whom he scored his first pop breakthrough via “TONIGHT I CELEBRATE MY LOVE,” taken from the 1983 gold album, “BORN TO LOVE.”
