About Tyrese

Tyrese Darnell Gibson, more commonly referred to as TYRESE by his fans & friends,.epitomises the modern entertainer. A successful career in modelling, grammy nominated recording artist, and blockbusting Hollywood actor, certainly has achieved more than most other artists have done in the entire length of their careers.

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? and Tommy Hilfiger.

Having developed a successful modelling career, TYRESE could not push aside his childhood ambition to make music.   TYRESE started singing at the age of 14, but it was finally in 1997, during a break from his flourishing TV acting career ("Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" (1992-1997) and "Martin" (1992-1997)], that TYRESE signed a recording deal with RCA Records.  This resulted in the release of TYRESE's self-titled debut album on September 29, 1998, soaring to the top position of Billboard Heatseekers also the top 20 of Billboard 200 and ultimately certified Platinum.

This led to TYRESE winning an award for Favorite Soul/R&B New Artist at the 2000 American Music Awards.  He 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), both solidifying his place in the RNB world as one of its leading male vocalists. During this period, TYRESE gained success in his acting career as his first film feature, "Baby Boy" (2001), being well received by both the critics and the box office.

Following the achievement of this gritty romantic drama picture, its director, John Singleton (BOYZ IN THE HOOD), 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".  "2 Fast 2 Furious" was a massive hit at the box office across the world, and it catapulted the 25-years-old hunk to international attention, and attracting bigger Hollywood roles, such as those in "Flight of the Phoenix" (2004) and "Four Brothers" (2005).   But having had such success in Hollywood, TYRESE he took time out to return to his original interest, working on a double-CD project entitled "Alter Ego" (2006) which featured R&B tunes on one disc and hip-hop on another. Besides doing solo, he also took great in pleasure of working with his 'buddies' Tank and Ginuwine. The three of them formed a group simply named TGT after their stage name's initials while still maintaining solo career.

After another 5 year hiatus from his music, having scored humoungous hits at the box office with the ‘TRANSFORMERS' franchise in the interim period, in 2012 TYRESE released his 5th studio album entitled ‘OPEN INVITATION', where he declared to his fans that music has always been his first love, which he has promised to show fans coming out to see him on this tour.
