Leee John’s ever-popular group, Imagination, catapulted Leee to international recognition and fame in the early ‘80s with the major hit, “Just An Illusion”, which was recently sampled by Mariah Carey as part of a duet with rapper Nelly for her multi-platinum 2005 album, “The Emancipation Of Mimi.”
But for all that he’s achieved in a career notable for its consistency and longevity, Leee is most proud of his much-anticipated, soul/jazz solo debut, “Feel My Soul,” released on Candid Records.
Leee’s acting credits include roles in “Dr. Who,” “The Chinese Detective” and “Stepping Out,” and has appeared in the musical “The Hot Mikado,” performed in Tahiti. He starred in “Reborn In The USA” which took him from coast-to-coast in America on sold-out shows in major U.S. cities.
The recipient of numerous silver, gold and platinum discs, and a Diamond Award, Leee’s list of career accomplishments includes performances for Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, dinner at the home of Nelson Mandela, and a rare “Soul Train” appearance in which he sang to the legendary Marvin Gaye.
