David Clayton Thomas Of Blood Sweat and tears
Grammy Award-Winning David Clayton-Thomas Will Make You So Very Happy
David Clayton-Thomas began his amazing journey as a homeless street kid and developed into one of the most recognizable voices in music while making “Blood Sweat & Tears” (BS&T) one of the most important pop music groups of the 1990s.
To date, he has sold over 40 million records. He was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1996 and in 2007 his jazz/rock composition “Spinning Wheel” was enshrined in the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame. In 2010 David received his star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. His 1968 debut album with BS&T sold 10 million copies worldwide. The self-titled record topped the Billboard album chart for seven weeks, and charted for a staggering 109 weeks. It won an unprecedented five Grammy awards, including Album of The Year and Best Performance by a Male Vocalist. It featured three hit singles, “You Made Me So Very Happy” “And When I Die”,” and “Spinning Wheel” as well as an irresistible rendition of Billie Holiday’s “God Bless the Child” that became a signature song for him. He continued to tour successfully under the BS&T name until 2004 and now he has launched a 10-piece band under his own name. Through the years, he has lost none of the attributes that have made him one of the greatest vocalists of his generation with that unmistakable voice that just sings the heck out of a song.
