The New York-born Williams made quite a splash in the late 80s and early 90s, first hitting radio with “Talk To Myself” in 1989, before going all the way to #1 three years later with the smash “I’m Dreamin’” from the New Jack City soundtrack, in which he also acted.

Williams continued to record sporadically during the 90s, Issuing the top 20 albums Changes in 1992 and Not A Perfect Man in 1995, as well as individual contributions to several movie soundtracks and guest appearances with such artists as Miki Howard and Shae. He was also part of the all-star Black Men United single, “U Will Know,” led by Gerald Levert and a bevy of musical giants. He returned in 2001, with Real Men Do, which surprisingly became his final full album release.

Williams also burnished his acting chops, appearing in several movies such as Gunmen and New York Undercover, as well as a number of traveling musical stage plays.

Happily for his fans, Williams returned to recording over the past couple of years, issuing a series of excellent singles, including this Summer’s “Fine As Gold,” produced by Stone Paxton.

We’ll be praying for a full and complete recovery of Mr. Williams, and hoping that he’ll be back in musical action soon.
