Peabo Bryson & Roberta Flack

Tonight I Celebrate My Love for You
# 16 in 1983


Robert Peabo Bryson was born in Greenville, South Carolina on April 13, 1951. Bryson won a Grammy Award and an Academy Award in 1992 for his performance of the song "Beauty and the Beast" with Céline Dion and another in 1993 for "A Whole New World" (Aladdin's Theme) with Regina Belle.
Roberta Flack was born February 10, 1937 in Asheville, North Carolina. She became the first black student teacher at an all-white school near Chevy Chase, Maryland. She graduated from Howard University at 19 and began graduate studies in music, but the sudden death of her father forced her to take a job teaching music and English for $2800 a year in Farmville, North Carolina. In 1999, a star with Roberta's name was placed on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
