Singer-songwriter, producer, and Grammy Award-winner CeeLo Green will perform Sunday, Dec. 22, at Suffolk Theater as part of his “Holiday Hits Tour.” Green will perform his greatest hits, as well as tracks from his holiday album, “CeeLo’s Magic Moment.”
Green first appeared on the music scene as a member of the southern hip-hop group Goodie Mob. He later formed Gnarls Barkley with DJ-producer Danger Mouse, releasing the 2006 worldwide hit “Crazy,” which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
In 2001, Green received five Grammy-award nominations for his worldwide hit “Forget You” (also known as: “F–k You”), winning the category for “Best Urban/Alternative Performance.” The single, from his album “The Lady Killer,” was certified gold in the United States and Denmark, achieved platinum status in Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom and multi-platinum status in Australia. “Forget You” was also covered by Gwyneth Paltrow on the popular television, “Glee” in 2011. In 2012, he released his Christmas album, followed by a solo album, “Everybody’s Brother” in 2013.
Green has also made numerous television appearances, including coaching on “The Voice” for several seasons, performing on Saturday Night Live, presenting at the ESPYs and Kids’ Choice Awards, and performing on numerous music award shows. He also started in Whitney Houston’s last film, “Sparkle” and voiced “Murray the Mummy” in the animated film “Hotel Transylvania.”
In addition to his entertainment pursuits, Green also was involved in philanthropic efforts. In August 2012, Green and his sister Shedonna Alexander launched The GreenHouse Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to “educate, inspire and empower children” to lead a green lifestyle.
