Singer/songwriter and rap superstar CeeLo Green takes audiences on a spectacular musical journey in his show "CeeLo Green is Loberace" at Planet Hollywood. As the conductor and ringmaster of the show, CeeLo makes stops at legendary moments in music from Prince to Blue Magic, The Rolling Stones, Liberace, new wave, disco and beyond.
More spectacle than show, the production combines CeeLo's flamboyant sense of style and creativity magnified with his soulful voice. He performs covers of his favorite music along with original songs. Part dance party, part live intimate concert, the show is a personification of all the glamorous attributes that have become CeeLo's signature.
In true Vegas fashion the show also features mind-twisting magic, sexy showgirls, extravagant costumes and impressive stage design that are more indulgent that anything the sequin-styled international lady killer has done so far.
Whether you know Green from his days with Good Mob or as part of Gnarles Barkely, there's no denying the entertainers talent as both a solo artist and member of a group.
The multi-talented performer started his career as a founding member of the Atlanta-based hip-hop group Goodie Mob. The group also consisted of Big Gipp, T-Mo and Khujo. Good Mob released their debut album, "Soul Food," in 1995. Green gained recognition as both a rapper and singer for his worn on the album's singles Cell Therapy" and "Soul Food." Green's days as a member of Goodie Mob came to an end while the group was working on their third album, "World Party." The album was released in 1998, but Green had already departed from the band before that time to pursue his career as a solo artist.
The following year after "World Party" was released, Green was one of the featured artists on Santana's "Supernatural" album released in 1999.
In 2002 Green released his debut solo album "Cee-Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections." He followed that with a second album ,"Cee-Lo Green… Is the Soul Machine," released in 2004. The album featured collaborations with Ludacris, T.I., Pharrell Williams. It contained the hit singles "I'll Be Around," produced by Timbaland and "The One," which featured Jazze Pha and T.I.
Green's career as a solo artist continued to gained momentum, but after his second album he decided to join the group Gnarls Barkely with Danger Mouse. They released the song "Crazy" on the album "St. Elsewhere" and the rest is history. Both the song and the album were a huge success propelling the group to international stardom. In 2009 Rolling Stone voted "Crazy" as the best song of the decade. That album was followed by "The Odd Couple" released in 2008.
Green took over the airwaves again in 2010 when he released the single "F*** You". The single was featured on the album "The Lady Killer." Due to a partial leak, Green decided to release the song on YouTube before the new album officially came out. "Crazy" instantly went viral with more than 2 million plays in less than one week. The song garnered five Grammy nominations.
TV fans across the country recognize Green as one of the judges on the hit NBC show "The Voice," a reality TV show where singers compete for a cash prize and record deal. Green appears on the show alongside fellow judges and music artists Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and country music artist Blake Shelton.
Along with his work on television, Green continued to release new music. On his album "Happy Hour," Green collaborated with producer Jazze Pha to create the singles "Man of the Hour," "Disco B****" and "Happy Hour."
