Wayne Brady Releases Debut R&B Disc: He also answers his 'blacker than thou' critics.

Sep 15, 2008 | Posted by: TheNewsMan | Full story: www.eurweb.com

"When you look at someone on TV, you look at whatever image that person is projecting. Just because the earlier things I did were Disney-based and ABC-based and therefore they followed certain clean factor, a certain class factor, and maybe even a certain 'cheese' factor, you don't know me," he said. "You don't know that I grew up singing in church or that I spent years at a stretch singing in R&B bands and touring and doing cruise ships and singing in bars and dives. All you see is that's that brother from 'Whose Line'. So that's the ace up my sleeve. No one knows me in that regard so I can show them that side of me that I haven't been able to because I was busy doing the other stuff."

He has a great voice but...no. Will have to past on this one. Good Luck, though, Mr. Brady Bunch.
