American singer-showman Billy Daniels was one of the most successful vocalists to come out of the Big Band Era, sharing the stage with legends such as Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Pearl Bailey and Charlie Parker. When he released "That Old Black Magic," the song, paired with Daniels' signature voice and dance style, became a massive hit, selling more than 12 million copies. Now a huge celebrity on TV, in Hollywood, and on Broadway, and advertised as 'America's most exciting singer,' Daniels appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, amongst others, and hosted The Billy Daniels Show, one of the first series to star a black performer.
“The essence of showmanship.”
- The New York Times

“There are some better-known personalities,
but none as infectious and charming as Billy Daniels.
Charming crowds comes as easy as morning's sunrise...
his success has come from wooing audiences with his smooth voice...”
- Ebony Magazine
