Lemar Biography - A Smooth-Crooning R&B Star
Born in Tottenham as part of the Obika family, this respected recording artist enjoyed his first taste of showbiz when he signed a record deal with BMG and supported artists such as Destiny's Child and Usher in 2001. However, after failing to set the charts alight with his debut single he was dropped and returned to a more mundane life, working in a bank.
However, the determined vocalist would get another shot at the big time when he appeared on the inaugural series of TV music contest Fame Academy in 2002, eventually finishing third. The national exposure helped him land a £1 million deal with Sony and he hit Number Two with his first release for the label, 'Dance (With U)'. Mixing R&B vocals with funk and easy listening influences, his debut album Dedicated followed in 2003 and eventually went platinum, a feat he would also achieve with subsequent LP releases Time to Grow and The Truth About Love.
Continuing to wow fans with 2008's The Reason and 2012's Invincible, he's now considered the most successful graduate from BBC's answer to the X Factor. Find out why he's enjoyed much more than fleeting stardom - browse the latest listings for Lemar tickets on StubHub.
