Simon Webbe

Simon Webbe (born 30 March 1979 in Moss Side, Manchester, England) is a music singer, writer, producer, manager and film star.
Simon Webbe originally started his career out with British boy-band Blue.

On the 30 October 2006 the first single off Simon's new album "Coming Around Again" and was described by Simon as "an uplifting slice of soulful pop" and as "a reminder of the highlights in your life". When released it reached #12 in the UK Singles Charts, which Simon himself admits as disappointing.
His highly anticipated second album "Grace" was released on the 13th of November, 2006, it just missed the UK top ten debuting and peaking at #11.
The second single "My Soul Pleads For You" was released on February 19, 2007 and charted at a disappointing #45 on the singles chart.
On May 21st, Simon launched his first ever live tour to support his second album "Grace". The tour consists of 18 dates through May and June starting-off in Cambridge and climaxing in London.
After his album and singles failure there were many reports suggesting that Simon had been dropped by Innocent Records, however these reports proved to be false and Simon carefully began plotting his next career move.
In early June it was announced that Simon will be releasing the title track from his second studio album with the theme song from the upcoming motion picture entitled "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer". The single was a double a-side release of "Grace / Ride The Storm", that peaked at a very disappointing #36 in the UK.
In Europe, "Seventeen" was released instead of Grace, but due to the low airplay and no video for the song, it was also a commercial flop.
