Biography

There are two performing artists named Christopher Williams.

- Cousin to Al B. Sure!, Christopher Williams (born Troy Christopher Williams on August 22, 1967) produced numerous R&B hits during the new jack swing era of the late 1980s and early 1990s. He is also known for having dated Halle Berry and Stacey Dash, the latter whom he has a son (Austin) with. His eldest son, Justin Hylton-Williams, is following in his father’s footsteps as an executive in the music industry. In a 2010 interview with MTV, Christopher expressed his desire for Justin to begin his own singing career; siting his son’s incredible voice and ear for music.

He released his debut album, entitled Adventures in Paradise, in 1989. The singles “Talk To Myself” and “Promises, Promises” reached the R&B Top 10, and Christopher’s powerful voice helped him stand out among his peers. In 1991 he appeared alongside Wesley Snipes and Ice-T in the movie New Jack City. He contributed to the movie’s soundtrack with “I’m Dreamin’”. It would become Christopher’s biggest hit, reaching number one on the R&B chart. His next album, 1992’s Changes, produced more hits with “All I See”, “Every Little Thing U Do”, and a cover of the Teddy Pendergrass classic “Come Go With Me”.

Changes would be followed up with Not a Perfect Man in 1995 and Real Men Do in 2001. Since then, he’s been appearing in plays such as “Men Cry in the Dark”.

    Christopher Williams is such an underrated R&B/Soul/Pop/New Jack Swing artist! It is kind of fustrating that people rather waste their money on male R&B singers who are all flash and no substance! I am glad he has continued in his career in as a singer and actor despite the fact he has not gotten the success or respect he deserves.

    ooooh. you all have no love for christopher williams lol. he never quite blew up like it was suggested based on his affiliation with uptown records, puffy, mary j blige & jodeci. the 1992 changes cd is pretty damn good, although christopher does have a tendency to oversing some of the songs. his voice is very aggressive and that's part of his appeal but he was bordering on assault with some of the vocals on that cd lol. the followup, not a perfect man, was so much more mellow. but by then, 1995, r&b already had a king and his name was r. kelly.

    Please vote "thumbs up" for this pic... http://www.last.fm/music/Christopher+Williams/+images/26750583 Even though I don't listen to the folk singer, I'm at least willing to compromise. This is just as much the R&B singer's page as the folk singer's.
