More Info

Tyrese: Born on December 30, 1978 in Watts Quarter, Los Angeles, California as the youngest of four children in his family, he, along with his siblings, was raised solely by his mother, Priscilla Murray Gibson, after his father left them in 1983. This multi-talented guy first gained national attention when he showed up in the 1995 Coca-Cola TV commercial as its new face of the year upon winning a talent search held by its company, subsequently led him to other appearances for Guess? also Tommy Hilfiger.

Afterwards developed a successful modeling career, Tyrese apparently could not push aside his wish to develop a career in music industry, a goal he had aimed to achieve since he started singing at the age of 14. Already made his foray into screen production through one-time performance in several TV series, such as Hangin' with Mr. Cooper (1992-1997) and Martin (1992-1997), he then released his self-titled debut album on September 29, 1998 under RCA Records. It amazingly became a smash hit over the country in quite a short time, soaring to the top position of Billboard Heatseekers also the top 20 of Billboard 200 and ultimately was certified Platinum.

This initial attainment undeniably led Tyrese to gain wider public notice all over the country, moreover after he gloriously nabbed the title of Favorite Soul/R&B New Artist at the 2000 American Music Awards. Also became a Grammy nominee for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance through his single, Sweet Lady, in the same year, he continued to solidify his status in music industry, releasing two other albums, 2000 Watts (2001) and I Wanna Go There (2002), which both satisfyingly received Gold status. During this period, the tall singer also encountered fair success in his acting career as his first film feature, Baby Boy (2001), resulted quite well both critically and commercially.

Following the achievement of this gritty romantic drama picture, its director, John Singleton, decided to once again collaborate with Tyrese, thus cast him alongside Paul Walker, Eva Mendes, and Ludacris in his 2003 effort 2 Fast 2 Furious. Scored a fantastic income of more than 236 million U.S dollar worldwide, the flick consequently catapulted the 25-years-old hunk to .international attention, giving him larger opportunity to secure more high-profile film roles, like those in Flight of the Phoenix (2004) and Four Brothers (2005). Next billed to star in the 2006 projects of Annapolis plus Waist Deep, he took time to return to his original interest, working on a double-CD project entitled Alter Ego which was planned to feature R&B tunes on one disc and hip-hop on another.

Dave Hollister: DAVE HOLLISTER

Dave Hollister built his R&B credentials on a gospel foundation. His gospel prowess is no shocker considering that he spent most of his time in church growing up with his eleven siblings. Both of his parents were preachers and it was at his father’s church that he received his vocal training.

Dave Hollister is best known for rocking his soulful gospel voice with music that mixes streetwise hip-hop and smooth R&B flavor. He has backed-up everyone from Mary J. Blige, to Patti Labelle, to Tupac, as well as serving as writer/producer for Tim Dog and Ray Watkins.

He first appeared on the soundtrack of Boyz N the Hood, but got his big break as an original member of Teddy Riley’s Blackstreet, performing on their 1994 debut album, “Blackstreet.” He departed shortly thereafter to pursue a solo career, not only as a singer but also as a songwriter and producer.

Hollister’s first recorded effort as a solo act, the Erick Sermon/Redman collaboration “Weekend,” was featured on the movie soundtrack “The Ride” and released as a single in 1998. His solo debut, “Ghetto Hymns,” was issued in 1999. “Chicago ’85: The Movie” followed a year later. His superior vocal talents have also been featured on several albums, including “Blacka Da Berry,” “Enigma,” “Lead and How to Swing It,” “Usher,” and “Hi-Five.”

He later released “Real Talk” which gave the world a lot to talk about. The Soulster again amazed the music industry with songs like Let Me Reason with YourDONOTBLOCKOURADS Body, Bad When You’re Broke and Case is Closed. After this project Hollister made a life changing decision to walk away from R&B music and the lifestyle in order to live a life that is pleasing to God.

Real Talk marked the transition of Dave’s musical career and personal and spiritual life. The Book of David is the result of Hollister’s life-changing decision. It is not aimed just at Gospel fans but at Hollister’s R&B fans as well. The songs on the album include blunt honesty about his past, as well as, his present which is as much a purging for Hollister himself as he hopes it will be a primer for those going through the same challenges he has faced.

The Book of David is a life changing project that will guide you through transition.
