Today, Anthony Hamilton draws comparisons to Bill Withers and Bobby Womack. He reasoned that it was his childhood motivation to move on to bigger things that finally got him there. Born on January 28, 1971, Hamilton was raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. At the age of 10, he joined a local church's choir and sang with his high school's choir.
Hamilton decided to move to New York City in 1993 to pursue a more professional career in music and it was when he scored a recording deal with Andre Harrell's Uptown Records. In 1995, his debut album was on preparation to be released but the company went bankrupt and left the album in the shelves. But his journey did not go down with the label.
