Tevin Campbell Biography
Review The Artist (32)
Birth date: November 12, 1976
Birthplace: Waxahachie, TX
Before Tevin Campbell busted on to the scene with "Tomorrow" in 1989 he was an "average" little boy with a talent. He was born in Texas by Rhonda Byrd and grew up with brother Damorio and sister March?. In the church choir Tevin developed his vocal talents. In 1988 he sang for Bobbi Humphrey over the phone and that brought him to the legendary Quincy Jones. In 1989 he recorded the single "Tomorrow" on Jones' Back on the Block album. He stared being compared to supreme vocalist such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and other R&B sensations. He eventually caught the eye of Prince who game him his second hit from the Graffiti Bridge Soundtrack, Round and Round. He made a little cameo in Graffiti Bridge movie singing the song, but even though Tevin had a role on the pilot "Wally and The Valentines" he wasn't headed for the big screen he was heading towards the studio.
By 1991 he started recording T.E.V.I.N his debut album. Co-writing some of the tracks he worked with Al B. Sure, Narada Michael Walden, Prince, Kyle West, and Producer Quincy Jones. This album got rave reviews and put him on the charts with "Tell me what you want me to do", "Just ask me to", and "Goodbye". He even did some more acting on the "Fresh Prince of Bell Air" playing Ashley's( Tatiana Ali) date.
In 1993 Tevin did what came naturally, he recorded his sophomore album. I'm Ready provided Tevin with a permanent spot as a solid R&B sensation and not just a one hit wonder. Again working with legendary artists and producers like Prince, Quincy Jones, Narada Michael Walden and this time Babyface and Daryl Simmons. Tevin himself even co-wrote again. But Teivn didn't let stardom go to his head, he took some time off to be a teenager and experience life, crediting his mom and family for keeping his head level.
So what does a teenage two time platinum a award wining super star do, finish highschool. Tevin started his 3rd album with the hottest producers to today. Babyface, Puff Daddy, and the Boom Brothers all contributed to make a breakthrough album. The songs really utilize Tevins versatile voice. A mix of ballads and funky beats gives this album the cutting edge sound . Almost three years after I'm ready. I know we were all ready for the drop of Back to the world. Released in 1996 it gave Tevin a new look. Tevins twist was a new fashion statement for him but eventually returned to his o'natural hair still. This time Mr. Campbell took a shot at Executive Producing along with Michael Stradford and as in the last to albums co-wrote some of the tracks.
Tevin's new album "Tevin Campbell" has been in stores since February 23,1999. Working with songwriters like Wyclef Jean and Narada Michael Walden we really hear the range of his talent. Acting as an executive producer on this album with Quincy Jones, Jay Brown and Stevie J. Tevin delivers his much awaiting fans the album they deserve. We can not wait to see him on tour!

lancaster, texas tevin campbell | Reviewer: sylvia smith | 3/2/11
I remember when you started singing as a young boy, and then your big break came. Thanks to Quincy Jones, Prince and the late King of Pop Michael Jackson. Tevin you have a gift, keep God first and you will always be blessed physical and mentally.
TEVIN - COME BACK TO THE WORLD - We miss you | Reviewer: Sharine | 8/14/10
I saw Tevin recently at the 02 London he was a supporting act for Jon B. Tevin needed more time on stage, the love he showed the audience with his voice was amazing, and the love he recieved from the audience was too overwhelming for him.
i have been your biggest fan since 1989 and i will listen to all your songs forever. YOUR A TRUE TALENT!!!!
Still a great song, still a great vocalist | Reviewer: Ken | 6/13/10
I remember when this song came out. It was the 1992 Olympics. This song more than any other on the album it's from was the most powerful, and the one I most remember. Tevin was a perfect choice for this song. He should re-release it. It never really got it's just due. I put it right next to Whitney Houston's One Moment in Time. What a promising career. Hope he makes it back to give us a sampling of his great talent.

you are a very talented person | Reviewer: vanessa griffin | 2/13/09
Tevin, I think that you have a God given talent and you should not let it go to waste. I remember when I first heard you sing the song "Round and round" I fell in love with your voice and talent from the beginning and wish there was a way that I could meet you and get a collection of your albums and an autograph and just be your friend. Keep on singing and give thanks and praise to God for your gift and do not lose it.
