Biography:

A Cleveland Ohio native - some might say that music is in Gerald's blood. Rarely does an R & B crooner celebrate such an illustrious career as Gerald LeVert.

From his penetration into the business with the 1985 release of Casanova – with the late 80's trio LeVert - one could see that Gerald was a singer with talent, but it wouldn't be until his 1991 debut release "Private Line" that R & B fans wold gain a prolific view of the soulful skills of Gerald LeVert.

Since then, the Grammy-nominated crooner has delved his works into numerous projects all depicting a strong sound and at times outspoken lyrics. He's honed his skills and collaborated on several projects some of which have contributed to works of Teddy Pendergrass, Patti LaBelle and The Winans In 1996, he celebrated the multi-platinum success of "My Body", a sensual single formed from the LSG collaboration with fellow R & B songsters Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill.

Gerald has always strived to improve himself as a singer and writer and with his latest release nothing as been short changed. The artist prides himself on growing as an artist through the years - and with his latest project he offers the public a more prolific voice as he touches on real-life subjects rarely addressed with candor by those in the entertainment industry.

Sadly, he died of a heart attack when he was just 40 years old
