— GUEST HOST — BILLY NEWTON-DAVIS
International singing superstar, Billy Newton-Davis, has been one of Canada’s premier entertainers for over 25 years. His roots were firmly planted at the age of 5 at a Baptist church in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio where he learned to sing gospel music. His first professional gig was as a backing vocalist for Gloria Gaynor. He then later performed on Broadway in the hit show ‘Bubblin Brown Sugar’ and also appeared in the Broadway production of ‘Stop The World I Want To Get Off’ starring Sammy Davis Jr.
His debut album, ‘Love Is a Contact Sport’ won Billy Newton-Davis the 1986 Juno award for Best R&B/Soul Recording and Most Promising Male Vocalist. His 1989 follow-up, ‘Spellbound’, included his most successful single ‘I Can’t Take It,’ as well as ‘Can’t Live with You’ (a duet with Celine Dion) – winner of the the 1989 Juno award for Best R&B/Soul Recording.
In 1991, Billy joined The Nylons and enjoyed a successful stretch performing and touring with the world-renowned singing group. Since leaving The Nylons, he has primarily concentrated on song writing and live jazz and gospel performances. Billy was a guest vocalist on the ‘Seekers Dialogue’ series with internationally acclaimed author and lecturer Marianne Williamson. In March 2008, Billy Newton-Davis performed with The Nylons in Madison, Wisconsin for an evening to celebrate their latest recording ‘Sterling’ 25 years of recording. This was an event that brought together other Alumni of The Nylons and produced an astonishing evening of music.
Billy Newton-Davis is the winner of the 2008 Juno Award for ‘Best Dance Recording’ – ‘All You Ever Want” Billy Newton Davis vs. Deadmau5, on Play Records. Billy’s other classic dance tracks – ‘Are My Dreams’ & ‘I like the Music’, produced by Deadmau5, have been played internationally and continue to be in feature rotation on Proud FM Toronto and BBC Radio 1.
2008’s EVERYTHING I WANNA DO (IS YOU) stands as a stellar example of the passion and soul Billy lends to House music recordings. On this one, he teamed with hit maker, NINO ANTHONY, and the result is a groovy Electro track that would likely leave any gospel musician nodding with approval.
