Official Biography (courtesy of Dorian Holley)
Dorian Holley is new to the solo scene. Perhaps because he has spent most of his time backing folks up. The vocal coach on American Idol the last four seasons, he also sings on Don't Forget The Lyrics, and was a featured vocalist on Dancing With The Stars for its first three seasons. Listen closely and you can pick his voice out on the film Happy Feet. Then go dig up a DVD of cult fav, The Five Heartbeats. Dorian is the voice of Choir Boy, which is kind of funny because when he was a kid he was one in the world renowned Bob Mitchell Singing Boys Choir. Since then Dorian has done all of Michael Jackson's solo tours; he's toured with Queen Latifah, Rod Stewart, James Taylor, Lionel Richie, Don Henley, Linda Rondstadt; he has sung with Stevie Wonder, Usher, Cristina Aguilera, Fantasia, Stevie Nicks, Patti Labelle, Chris Brown, Herbie Hancock, Jon Legend, Chris Daughtry, Mary J. Blige, Joni Mitchell, Jennifer Hudson, Joss Stone, Seal, Chrisette Michele, the list goes on and on. When you can't sleep late one night, Google him. You'll find many of the films he's sung in and CD credits up the yin yang.
