In a field saturated with artists fighting to fit in, multi-talented artist Chris Scholar cuts a clear path through it all with skill and precision. The Virginia native writes, sings, raps, dances, and can even claim the title of video director and editor at a mere 19 years old.
It was at the age of 8 that Chris’s minor interest in music developed into a passion while singing in his church choir. Chris began to realize his calling and ability to impact the lives of others through music. Since then, Chris has been performing on stages up and down the east coast opening for such greats as Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, G-Unit, and Dru Hill. He was later introduced to Grammy Award Winning Producer Rio Bridges who noticed his potential and mentored his development.
He has kicked off professional sports games with his moving rendition of the National Anthem and been nominated for state-wide awards for his talent. Chris sites influences such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Bobby Womack, and Erykah Badu in addition to hip-hop greats, Tupac, Outkast, and The Fugees as inspiring him along the way.
Despite catching the eye of such legendary music executives as Jermaine Dupri and L.A. Reid, Scholar paired with the Grammy Award winning production house Mars On Sunday under the direction of Blac Elvis and Harold Lilly for his home. His amazing work ethic combined with their industry and creative expertise has resulted in records you are sure to hear in the near future and for years to come. Chris Scholar is a virtuoso on the rise with no plans of slowing down anytime soon… if ever.
