Billy Ocean is the biggest black recording star Britain has ever produced and has sold over 30 million records in his lifetime to date. He has collected a pile of Gold and Platinum records across the world and hit the number one spot worldwide in the pop charts including the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, and the UK.
Billy has achieved extraordinary success as both an artist and a songwriter. Born in Trinidad, Billy settled in London's East End when he was just seven years old. The calypso crazy kid soon got turned on to soul singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, as well as pop groups like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, leading him to spend much of his study time in the music room. Billy got his first break when he signed to GTO records, for whom his second single was the Motown-ish 'Love Really Hurts Without You', which reached Number Two in the UK charts and Number 12 in the US. Two top twenty singles followed, and 'Love on Delivery' and 'Stop Me', then 'Red Light Spells Danger', became a smash in both the UK and the US.
