Robert Peabo Bryson was born on 13 April 1951. His love for music stemmed from his mother, who often took the family to concerts of well-known African Americans.
Bryson, known for singing soul ballads, marked his professional debut at the age of 14, singing backup for Al Freeman and the Upsetters.
At 25, he launched his own recording career and released his debut album in 1976. 47 years later, he has 20 albums, tens of chart-topping ballads, and two Grammy Awards under his belt.
Here are some of those love songs that we feel deserve to feature on this list;

Beauty and the Beast : The song was written by Howard Ashman and composed by Alan Menken for the Disney animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991). The ballad was subsequently recorded as a pop duet by Canadian singer Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson.
