Peabo Bryson Tickets
6+. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Peabo Bryson is considered one of the founding fathers of American R&B. A native of Greenville, South Caroline, Peabo was no stranger to southern charm and music, and his mother frequently took him to see well-known soul artists of the time, such as Sam Cooke, Little Richard, and Billie Holiday. The young Peabo began singing backup for Al Freeman and the Upsetters, a local group. He loved the band, but ended up moving on to sign solo as a writer, producer, and arranger and was encouraged by his label's general manager to perform his own songs.
Peabo's talent was recognized quickly after signing as a solo performer. His self-titled album was a massive regional success, and his romantic lyrics struck a chord with the late '70s sentimental public. He led a relatively quiet life in the 1980s, but boomed back onto the music scene with his early-90s performances of "Beauty and the Beast" and "A Whole New World", two songs well-known to all who watched Disney films.
