Biography

Active: 1990s-2010s
Country Of origin: Jamaica

Reggae singer Sanchez was born Kevin Anthony Jackson in Kingston, Jamaica on November 30, 1964. A member of his church choir throughout adolescence, he became immersed in reggae while in high school, and was eventually named the selector for the local Rambo Sound System. In time, Sanchez turned to singing as well, and in 1987 issued his debut single "Lady in Red"; a year later, he scored a major hit with the Winston Riley-produced "Loneliness." Known for his silky vocals and penchant for pop covers (including a smash rendition of Tracy Chapman's "Baby Can I Hold You"), his many albums include 1989's Number One, 1993's Tell It Like It Is, 1995's Praise Him, and 1999's True Identity. He released Songs from the Heart in mid-2000. His gospel album, He's Got the Power, would follow in 2003, while his 2010 effort Now and Forever was a return to secular music. Filled with cover versions of R&B classics, Love You More arrived in 2011. ~ Jason Ankeny~ Rovi
