D'Angelo and The Vanguard
Michael D'Angelo Archer was born in Richmond, VA the son of a Pentecostal minister. He began teaching himself piano as a very young child, and at age 18, he won the amateur talent competition at Harlem's Apollo Theater three weeks in a row. In 1991, he signed a publishing deal with EMI.

D'Angelo's first major success came in 1994 as a writer/producer, helming the single ‘U Will Know' on the Jason Lyric soundtrack; That helped lead to the success of his debut solo album, 1995's ‘Brown Sugar', which went on to sell over 2 million copies. With the title track ‘Lady' the album continued to soar on the charts. Defining D'Angelo as one of the founding fathers and leading lights of the neo-soul movement of the mid-to-late ‘90s; along with artists like Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and Maxwell.

In early 2000, D'Angelo released his sophomore album, ‘Voodoo' which debuted at number one, an indication of just how large and devoted his fan base was. The lead single ‘Untitled (How Does It Feel)' was a smash on the R7B charts and won a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal; likewise, Voodoo won for Best R&B album.

After nearly a decade, D'Angelo is back with the release of a new album, Black Messiah, he recently kicked off a European tour, performing at sold-out dates in Stockholm, Amsterdam and Paris and a US tour with Mary J Blige-The Liberation Tour.
