Craig David's Grenada-born father George played bass with the reggae band Ebony Rockers and David's early musical experiences were accompanying his father to local dance club gigs, where he performed at the microphone. His big break came singing with garage act Artful Dodger, achieving a major UK hit in 1999 with the dance track Re-Rewind. On the back of its success he went solo, hitting Number 1 in the UK charts at the age of 19 with Fill Me In. Follow-up single Seven Days was another major success, in both the UK and US, and his debut album Born To Do It sold over seven million copies, including four hit singles. In April 2009, the album was voted Number 2 in a Greatest Album Of All Time poll. His subsequent albums fared less well, though he had further major hits with All The Way and Don't Love You No More (I'm Sorry) in 2005 and Hot Stuff in 2007. The following year David released a Greatest Hits collection with an album of Motown covers - Signed, Sealed & Delivered - in 2010.
