GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and actor Anthony Hamilton has
sold over 50 million albums worldwide and been proclaimed a
"national treasure" by the Los Angeles Times. The
North Carolina Music Hall of Fame inductee has cemented his place in
the history books as the "narrator of love" with
awe-inspiring performances and emotionally raw lyrics. Hamilton first
burst onto the scene in 2003 with his smash hit "Charlene,"
which garnered the attention of NPR and resulted in him starring in
their noteworthy documentary series.
In 2007, he made his film debut in the critically
acclaimed American Gangster, and in 2012, he lent his vocals to
the Django Unchained soundtrack.
Hamilton now adds author and publisher to his lists of
accomplishments with the unveiling of his first self-published
book Cornbread, Fish n' Collard Greens, where he shares the
inspiration for some of the iconic songs in his illustrious career
and his love of southern food.
Hamilton is known for a singular style that combines
Southern-bred authenticity with a rich, raspy-edged delivery as sensitive
as it is vital. Over the last decade, he has produced a series of
platinum-selling albums and chart-topping R&B hits, including
“Comin’ Where I’m From,” “Charlene,” “You’ve Got the Love I Need,”
and “Amen,” the first single from his latest LP, What I’m Feelin’. “
