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 over a quarter century. 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. After landing another big hit with “Everlasting Love,” Terry left Epic for Virgin Records, where his recording career stalled after recording Heart of a Man.
Terry spent much of the next two decades on stage, performing in a number of touring musical shows. In 2014, he teamed with songwriter James Day and guitarist U-Nam on the independent hit, “Repertoire,” bringing him back to the R&B charts.
