Biography

The Orlando-born performer is no stranger to the stage or the recording studio. Chambers grew up in a musical household where he was exposed to everything from Gospel to Jazz, but the one particular sound that captured his heart and imagination was the Talkbox. He heard it used by Funk Master Roger Troutman and knew immediately that he had to make it his own. His excellence as a writer, arranger, musician and performer opened doors for him, and Chambers soon found himself performing alongside such Gospel greats as Jonathan Butler, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Fred Hammond, CeCe Winans, Kurt Carr and Bishop T.D. Jakes, to name just a few.

Chambers’ career exploded when he was offered a shot at playing keys with mega-pop band *NSYNC, and he has since toured and performed with pop superstars like the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, O-Town, Gloria Estefan and Jordan Knight. But as heady as the bright lights of fame and fortune can be, it can also take a toll. Chambers took a good hard look at where his life was headed, and he didn’t like what he saw. He decided to step away from *NSYNC in order to focus more time on his wife and family. “God told me at the height of my blossoming career to leave the road and dedicate my life to him, and he would bless my music to minister to the world,” Chambers says simply. And God has been faithful to His Word.

Chambers connected with hiphop superstar tobyMac and was featured on the Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning projects Welcome to Diverse City and Portable Sounds. He won his own Dove Award for Hip Hop Song of the Year for co-writing the Group 1 Crew song “Movin.” He did guests spots for such influential artists as Martha Munizzi, O-Town and American Idol finalist Danny Gokey.
