Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Dave Hollister
Album:Chicago '85...The Movie
Dave Hollister is an outstanding singer who made his name in R & B but has now returned to his gospel roots. He was born Aug. 17, 1970 in Chicago and he grew up singing in his father's church. He first turned up on the soundtrack of Boyz 'N' The Hood and was recruited by Teddy Riley to join the R & B group Blackstreet. He appeared on their 1994 debut but soon left and next turned up on the soundtrack of The Ride with Erick Sermon & Redman. He signed with DreamWorks Records and his 1999 debut Ghetto Hymns went gold. Chicago '85...The Movie was the follow up and did even better. He works a lot with producers Tim & Bob including the song Destiny. Hollister moved to Motown for his third CD Things In The Game Done Changed but things didn't go well there and he went back to DreamWorks for his 2003 CD Real Talk. Hollister got a lot of attention for his guest appearance on the Let's Dance video by gospel artist Hezekiah Walker. His appearance on BET's Celebration Of Gospel convinced Hollister that he could return to his gospel roots and still make great music. So he's now on GospoCentric and released The Book Of David Vol. 1:The Transition in 2006 mostly working with producer Shep Crawford (Tamia). Musically it's very similar to his R & B albums and I expect more of the same from him in the future. Here's the video for One Woman Man by Dave Hollister. This was his biggest chart hit to date.
