Now I know I'm not the only person that's been wondering where in the hell Tevin Campbell has been hiding out over the past few years. I'm sure we can all recall exactly what we were doing when we heard the news that he had been arrested for soliciting a lewd act from an undercover police officer here in L.A. back in 1999.
Quickly, America turned it's back on the boy who had us all singing "I hope tomorrow will bring, a better you, a better me, at our churches, schools, and family gatherings. So he made a mistake, but the boy can sing!! George Michael still has a career and we know how he likes to stroll around public toilets looking for uhmm......a place to "release".
I had a crush on Tevin and I remember going to the barbershop and asking to get a part cut in my head just like he had on the cover of his debut albumT.E.V.I.N. . Anyway, I digress.
More recently Tevin has joined the Broadway cast of the musical Hairspray , where he plays one of the leads.
Tevin has sold over 106 million albums worldwide and received Grammy and American Music Award nominations . He is planning a major comeback at the end of 2006 when he releases his 5th studio album. His list of producers reads like a musical dream team, it includes Scott Storch, Rodney Jerkins, The Underdogs, and Krucial Keys.
I want too see Tevin do his thing again, I always think talent should outweigh a person's past.....we've all got one.
