Cee Lo Green

Singer/Rapper

The son of two ordained ministers, Cee Lo Green started his musical career in the church. After his parents passed away at an early age, Cee Lo linked with Atlanta’s Dungeon Family, joining the seminal quartet Goodie Mob, whose 1995 album Soul Food helped put Southern rap on the map. After two solo albums, he formed the duo Gnarls Barkley with DJ Danger Mouse, and scored an international smash with the Grammy-winning single “Crazy.” Cee Lo’s outlandish costumes and genre-bending blend of soul, funk and jazz have kept the artist in a league of his own. Dressed as a sequined bird and backed by Gwyneth Paltrow and a band of singing Muppets, Cee Lo brought the house down at the 2011 Grammy Awards, performing his Song Of The Year–nominated hit “Forget You.”
