About the Performers Below: (from their bios)

AVANT

Avant is an American R&B singer-songwriter. He is best known for hits such as "Separated" (the remix to which features Kelly Rowland), “My First Love," which one version features KeKe Wyatt, and "Read Your Mind" (remix featuring Snoop Dogg on the extended promo vinyl and released September 30, 2003). He was featured in the remix to the Lloyd Banks song "Karma" from the 2004 album The Hunger for More, and has had a cameo appearance in the 2004 feature film BarberShop 2: Back in Business.

Avant got his start singing in the church choir. He attended Cleveland School of the Arts and after graduating he became the first act signed to NBA legend Magic Johnson’s MCA-distributed label, Magic Johnson Music (MJM). Avant’s 2000 MJM debut album, My Thoughts, spun off the Billboard No. 1 R&B hit “Separated.” That was followed by the top five hit “My First Love,” a cover of the 1983 René & Angela classic featuring Wyatt. Avant returned the favor on Wyatt’s 2001 album debut, Soul Sista, pairing with her on the No. 4 hit “Nothing in This World.”

Avant scored platinum with “My Thoughts” and later released two more platinum-certified albums, Ecstasy (2002) and Private Room (2003). He also added several top 10 singles to his arsenal, including “Makin’ Good Love” and “Read Your Mind.”

A versatile singer, Avant cites R. Kelly as his biggest influence and inspiration. He has recorded with a diverse range of artists, including Lil Wayne and contemporary jazz multi-instrumentalist Brian Culbertson. The latter pairing resulted in the top 15 R&B hit “Skies Wide Open.” Avant was also among a select group of singers chosen to pay homage to R&B legend Frankie Beverly on Silky Soul Music … An All-Star Tribute to Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. He has even done some acting, appearing in the DVD release of playwright David E. Talbert’s “In the Nick of Tyme,” which also stars Morris Chestnut, Ellia English and Terry Dexter.

 

JAGGED EDGE

Jagged Edge began their mainstream recording career with the single "The Way That You Talk". They followed this in 1998 with the album, A Jagged Era which managed to go gold featuring the singles "I Gotta Be" and "The Way That You Talk". "I Gotta Be" which was written by the twins, reached #11 on the R&B charts and #23 on the Hot 100.

Following up their debut album, Jagged Edge released J.E. Heartbreak in 2000. The album was the group's breakthrough album with several popular singles. The album went double platinum and featured the hit single "Let's Get Married" which topped the R&B charts and reached #11 on the Hot 100. The group's third release, Jagged Little Thrill, was released in 2001 and went platinum. Its success was in large part, due to the up-tempo "Where The Party At," which reached #1 on the R&B charts and #3 on the Hot 100, the group's highest charting single. Two other singles ("Goodbye" and "I Got It 2") failed to become hits at radio.

Jagged Edge's fifth album, Jagged Edge, was released on May 9, 2006 by Columbia/Sony Music Urban and it went gold. It featured the hit urban single "Good Luck Charm". Also released on November 21, 2006 was The Hits collection featuring Jagged Edge's biggest hits plus a few album tracks. The album shared the single "Stunnas" that's also on the Jagged Edge album as a bonus track.

CASE

 After stints with R&B group 'Future' and a duo called 'Black', Case got work co-writing and singing background for artists including Usher, Christopher Williams and Al B. Sure. Case finally felt close to achieving his dream of becoming a solo artist, and he was. Armed with a song written by Faith Evans, Case was discovered by Russell Simmons who signed him to Def Jam Records. Case’s self-titled debut Case soon followed along with the minor R&B hit singles "More to Love" and "I Gotcha."

Case followed the success of his first album with the release of Personal Conversation in 1999. The album featured the hits "Happily Ever After" (which reached #3 on the R&B charts and #15 on the Hot 100) and "Faded Pictures," (released April 20, 1999), which featured R&B singer Joe and reached #3 on the R&B charts and #10 on the Hot 100. "Happily Ever After" featured Beyoncé in the video as Case's love interest. The album's third single, "Think Of You" failed to do well, managing to only reach #50 on the R&B charts. Personal Conversation achieved platinum status.
