You may have seen him singing the alphabet song on Sesame Street, or remember him from the ‘90s boy-band Imajin, but whether his name rings a bell or not, Olamide Faison has made some major moves in both the music and television industries. The little brother of Donald Faison, Olamide has a valuable source of inspiration. In 1993, he played in Seven Songs for Malcolm X, a documentary that pays homage to the legacy of the fearless civil rights leader. Three years later, he appeared in the HBO film Rebound: The Story of Earl Maniguaut. As a singer, his soul-seducing vocals are comparable to some of our greatest R&B talents. Now working as a solo artist, the New York native travels throughout the country, serenading audiences with his tongue, and hypnotizing them with his guitar.
