Official Biography (courtesy of Chaz)
When was the last time you truly felt a song? The joyful rush that comes when an arresting melody pierces through the cacophony around you. When the words ring with a story that could have been lifted straight out of your own life.
Welcome to the Chaz experience. Reminiscent of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Luther Vandross, Chaz symbolizes the next generation of soulful artists for whom music is a divine passion-rather than a formulaic exercise. Having wrapped his Broadway-starring role as Harpo opposite Fantasia in Oprah Winfrey's "The Color Purple," the singer/songwriter/musician is ready to showcase those formidable talents on his debut album, THE FIRST ONE.
Due in summer 2008, through the independent label The PRK Group, THE FIRST ONE finds Chaz musically discoursing on love's exhilarating promise, life's roller-coaster ups and downs and hope for world unity. No matter the subject, however, this multifaceted artist instills his music with infinite feeling.
