Few performers are as versatile as singer, composer and producer CeCe Rogers. Well respected for his skills on the piano, CeCe can slide effortlessly from playing an r&b gig at New York’s Radio City Music Hall to a sanctified gospel church in New Jersey to a swinging jazz hall or a house club in Europe. And all the while, his powerful voice is always on point. One of the most prestigious vocalists in house music, CeCe is a legend in the house music movement.
In 1988 CeCe hooked up with Marshall Jefferson and recorded the track 'Someday', a track that to this day ranks as one of the true greats. Rated number 3 in Mixmags’s 100 greatest singles of all time, no single record distills the collectivist, loving spirit of house music as ably. No surprise that the simple but potent downward moving chord sequence was used later on every record ever, including 'Sweet Harmony' by Liquid and ripped off on the Farley and Heller version of 'There But For The Grace Of God', and 'Finally' by CeCe Peniston. An Anthem of the genre since its release, the song has sold over ten million copies worldwide and spores the club hits 'All Join Hands', 'Forever', 'Brothers and Sisters' and 'No Love Lost'. Respected throughout the world as one of the pioneers of house music, CeCe has produced, written and performed with Marshall Jefferson, David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, George Morel, Grant Nelson, Sounds of Blackness, Luther Vandross, Janet Jackson, Jocelyn Brown, Aretha Franklin, D’Angelo, Kenny Bobien, and Duran Duran to name a few.
