Personal Subject:
Without a doubt, CeeLo Green is a superhero of soul. He inspires awe with his colorful costumes and helps ordinary people find a Voice. With vocals so effective (in fact, they're almost otherworldly), he turned a four-letter word into a global phenomenon. His story begins in the Dirty South, where South Atlanta's native son transformed himself into the Abominable SHOWman. Along the way, innocence was lost, yet he found family at the Dungeon with the likes of Goodie Mob, Outkast, L.A. Reid, and Lauryn Hill. Then one day he teamed up with Danger Mouse and everything went "Crazy." This is the untold story of CeeLo Green's rise from the streets of Atlanta to the top of the charts.--From publisher description.
