During his career, he has notched up number one hits on both sides of the Atlantic and won the Grammy for best R'n'B vocal for Caribbean Queen.

In 1986, When the Going Gets Tough was used on the soundtrack for the film The Jewel of the Nile, starring Michael Douglas, Danny DeVito and Kathleen Turner.

He will be performing at Potters on May 3 as part of a nationwide tour.
