SoulTracks Look Back: Tony Terry made us swoon on "With You"

Tony Terry is a talented singer who rose to fame in the late 80s and early 90s but has stayed busy both on records and the stage for more than three decades. The DC native began as a backing vocalist for the pop act Sweet Sensation before being signed by Epic Records in 1987.

Terry’s debut album, Forever Yours, landed two top 10 singles in “Lovey Dovey” and “She’s Fly.” But his signature song came two years later, as the beautiful love ballad “With You” became an across-the-board smash in 1991. An uncompromisingly romantic song, it resonates now, decades after it hit the top 10 on the R&B charts and established Terry as part of a new breed of male vocalists – attention which he again warranted with his follow up single, “Everlasting Love” shortly after.
