Eric Marlon Bishop - Jamie Foxx

Eric Marlon Bishop (born December 13, 1967), professionally known as Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, comedian and singer. Foxx received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on September 14, 2007. For his work in the film Ray, Foxx won the Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Actor.

Foxx began piano lessons at age five. In 1994, Foxx released an album (on the Fox record label) entitled Peep This. In 2001, he hosted the MTV Video Music Awards. His music career went into a higher gear when, in 2004, he was featured on rapper Twista's song, "Slow Jamz", which also featured Kanye West. The song reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, as well as number three on the UK singles chart. Foxx's second collaboration with Kanye West, "Gold Digger", in which he sang the "I Got a Woman" Ray Charles-influenced hook, went straight to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and remained there for 10 weeks. In 2005, Foxx was featured on the single "Georgia" by Atlanta rappers Ludacris and Field Mob. The song sampled Ray Charles' hit "Georgia on My Mind".

Foxx released his second studio album, Unpredictable, in December 2005. It debuted at number two, selling 598,000 copies in its first week. The following week, the album rose to number one, selling 200,000 copies. The album has sold 1.98 million copies in the United States and was certified double Platinum by the RIAA. The album also charted in the UK Albums Chart, where it peaked at number nine. Foxx became the fourth artist to have won an Academy Award for acting and to have achieved a number-one record album in the US. (The other three to accomplish this feat were Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Barbra Streisand.) Foxx's first single from the album, the title track, "Unpredictable" (featuring Ludacris) samples "WildFlower" by New Birth. The song peaked inside the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and also made the UK top 20 singles chart. The second US single from the album was "DJ Play A Love Song", which reunited Foxx with Twista. In the UK, however, the second single was "Extravaganza", which saw Foxx once again collaborate with Kanye West. He was not, however, featured in the song's music video.

At the 2006 BET Awards, Foxx won two awards: Best Duet/Collaboration with Kanye West for "Gold Digger" and Video of the Year for the same video. Kanye's video tied with Mary J. Blige's (Be Without You) for Video of the year. On December 8, 2006, Foxx received 4 Grammy nominations:
Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for Love Changes feat Mary J. Blige.
Best R&B Album for Unpredictable.
Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for Georgia by Ludacris & Field Mob feat Jamie Foxx.
Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for Unpredictable feat Ludacris.

On January 22, 2007, Foxx was on Sirius Satellite Radio, announcing his new "Foxxhole" channel. This channel now features comedy and music by Jamie but also music and comedy by those Jamie respects most.

Foxx recorded a song with country superstars Rascal Flatts entitled "She Goes All The Way" for their album, Still Feels Good.

Foxx also does background vocals for artist/songwriter Tank. He and The-Dream are featured on Plies' (rapper) "Please Excuse My Hands"

Foxx remixed Ne-Yo's "Miss Independent" for his third album, Intuition, calling it "She Got Her Own". The track also features Fabolous.

Foxx collaborated with rapper The Game on the song "Around The World".

Foxx released his third album titled Intuition featuring such artists, Kanye West, T.I., Lil Wayne and T-Pain. Since the album came out he has released two singles along with two videos for them. The first for the song "Just Like Me" ft. T.I., which was directed by Brett Ratner and had an appearance by Taraji P. Henson. The second for the song "Blame It which features T-Pain. The second video also has cameo appearances by Forest Whitaker, Samuel L. Jackson, Ron Howard, Quincy Jones, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
