Johnny Gill

Biography

A singer behind eight solo and duet Top Ten R&B hits, as well as a member of New Edition since 1987, Johnny Gill was born in Washington, D.C., and began singing at a young age, beside his brothers in the gospel group Wings of Faith. His solo career began in 1983, when he signed to the Atlantic-affiliated Cotillion label and scored a number 29 R&B hit with his first single, the Freddie Perren-produced “Super Love.” Even then, Gill had a mature and muscular voice — one that sounded more like that of a grown man than a high schooler. Alongside childhood friend and fellow Cotillion artist Stacy Lattisaw, he scored an R&B Top Ten hit with “Perfect Combination,” the title track to the vocalists' 1984 album of duets. A second solo set, 1985's Chemistry, failed to gain much traction.
