Singer Craig David is known around the world for his chart-topping hip-hop and R&B melodies.

Born and raised in England, his exposure to music began at an early age by visiting live performance venues and nightclubs where DJs taught him to mix.

Soon he started writing lyrics and recording vocals, which paved the way for his solo career.

By the age of 19, he became the youngest solo male artist ever to reach number one in the UK.

His singing and song-writing success quickly extended overseas.

Today he produces music not only for popular culture, but also as a means to communicate with children in remote areas of Africa as a goodwill ambassador against Tuberculosis for the United Nations.
