Alicia Key’s Background Singer & Guitarist
At 15, Paul joined a quartet group named 1Accord signing to basketball star Shaquille O’Neal’s label, Twisim Records. He began writing and producing songs of his own. Paul also began recording backing vocals for artists such as Marry J. Blige, Joss Stone, Blackstreet and Jaguar Wright.
In 2001 Paul joined a band named Focus. He began traveling internationally as an opening act and background vocalist to Alicia Keys. He was hand picked by Keys out of the crowd one night at a club in New York to come onstage for an impromptu performance for her. She was so impressed with his talent that she later invited him to become one of her background singers. Since then, they have had numerous collaborations.
Along with the Vic Lavendar Ensemble

I don’t usually post on blogs but had to on yours. You have a very unique writing style. Thanks for having this site. I don’t have time to read all the articles here right now, I found this site when looking for something else on Yahoo, but I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will visit again soon to read the latest. I enjoy reading what other people think of Alicia Keys and Beyonce. I really enjoyed Alicia’s duet with Jay-Z on Empire State of Mind at the World Series. Please visit http://www.Beyonceitis.com! Keep up the fine work!
