To begin with, Bryson sang in Michael Zager’s band in the 1970s, and made his breakthrough as an R&B singer with his second solo album “Reaching for the Sky” (1977), which as well as the following one entitled “Crosswinds” (1978), was awarded gold certificates for sales. One year later the album “We’re the Best of Friends” was released with Natalie Cole, but Bryson didn’t have his first worldwide hit until 1983 in a duet with Roberta Flack. “Tonight I Celebrate My Love”, which reached #2 place on the UK charts. In the USA, he achieved a top 10 success with the solo recording “If Ever You’re in My Arms Again”. He also enjoyed great success in the 1990s; in 1991, the studio album “Can You Stop the Rain” topped the Billboard R&B charts, and the album of the same name received a gold award in the USA. The same year he sang with Céline Dion, the title song for the Walt Disney film “Beauty and the Beast” and again took the plunge into the top 10 of the USA charts, and the song won an Academy Award for Best Original Soundtrack as well as two Grammy Awards. A year later, he sang the Disney song “A Whole New World” for the movie “Aladdin” with Regina Belle, which won three Grammy Awards, including for the song of the year – it was actually Bryson’s only number one hit in the USA pop charts. In 1993, he joined Kenny G and recorded the song “By the Time This Night”, which subsequently stayed seven weeks in the Billboard Top 40.

Unfortunately, Bryson’s success decreased in the middle of 1990s. In 2003, he hit the headlines through tax breaks of $1.2 million. At a major auction, his Grammys, the gold awards and other valuable properties were sold to pay-off his debts. His last album “Missing You” was released in 2007; it took the 41st position on the Billboard R&B chart.

Finally, in the personal life of the singer, Peabo Bryson was engaged to Juanita Leonard and Angela Thigpen. However, he is married to Tanya Boniface. Peabo has one daughter, Linda Bryson.
