Charlie Burgess is an upcoming singer, rapper, song writer, and performer born in London Ontario but raised in his hometown of Chatham. From the beginning Charlie began expressing himself with music, performing leads in his church choirs. As this was happening the music industry was rapidly changing, as hip-hop, rap and R&B music was becoming mainstream creating acts such as: Boyz 2 Men, New Edition, Michael Jackson, and 2pac. As a young performer, Charlie started to be influenced by these great performers. He wanted to write his own songs while he maintained his studies in school and passion for track and field, so in 2005, Charlie joined Playasville ENT to begin releasing his music as an artist. Later on that year, Charlie would record his first song and begin social networking with other artist online, collaborating together while building his online following of fans and supporters.
