Los Angeles, California – The product of one of the most prolific musical families of our generation, Chuckii Booker was born and groomed for music. Whether recording, behind the scenes, or performing live, he does not disappoint. He is the son, grandson, nephew of notable musicians, but it was his Godfather, legendary R&B Singer, Barry White who broke him into the music scene signing him to his production deal in 1984.

Chuckii went on to amass a solid resume as a producer, singer, songwriter multi-instrumentalist and music director. His solo career may have been accidental when he passed along his first music demo to the famous saxophonist Gerald Albright’s manager, Raymond Shield. The intent was for his music to be heard, but it was his vocals which brought him his first recording contract with Atlantic Records and caught the attention of CEO Sylvia Rhone. His career as a solo artist began in 1986 with his debut release “Chuckii”. With this came the #1 R&B single “Turn Away”. Following on the heels of his debut album came his sophomore one, “Niice ‘N Wild” yielding yet another chart topper with the classic hit “Games” written and produced by Chuckii and co-written by the late great Gerald Levert.

His career led him to a portfolio encompassing a plethora of prominent recording artists he has worked with at various roles and capacities. Artists such as his Godfather Barry White, Tina Turner, New Edition, Troop, TLC, Lalah Hathaway, Vanessa Williams, Mary J. Blige, Tevin Campbell, Keisha Cole and many more. Let us not forget Chuckii’s famed role as the opening act and musical director for Janet Jackson on the record-breaking Rhythm Nation Tour and currently over two decades as the musical director for Lionel Richie
