Background: Born Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, Cee Lo Green was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the son of two ordained ministers. His music career began in the church, and the tragic loss of both of his parents by the time he was 18 has influenced his work.
Discography: He was a member of the southern hip-hop group Goodie Mob and released his first album with them, "Soul Food," in 1995, followed by "Still Standing" in 1998 and "World Party" in 1999. He left the group to pursue a solo career, leading to two unsuccessful releases for Arista Records. He achieved breakthrough success when he teamed with producer Danger Mouse to form the duo Gnarls Barkley, whose first album, "St. Elsewhere" (2006), was hailed by critics and featured the megahit single "Crazy." Gnarls Barkley released a second album, "The Odd Couple," in 2008. He resumed his solo career in 2010, with the release of the single "F*ck You" from the album "The Lady Killer." He is currently featured as a coach on NBC's singing competition series "The Voice," alongside Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Christina Aguilera.
