Born in England to an African-American jazz musician and a British opera singer, Clint Holmes was introduced to musical training at an early age. By the age of 8, his mother had taught him professional classical voice techniques, while his dad had taught him to scat sing in local jazz clubs. This unique musical upbringing gave Clint Holmes the signature vocal style that he is known for today. Clint has produced a range of CDs and songs, from romantic ballads such as “Feel Like Makin’ Love” and “Shouldn’t It Be Easy By Now” to thought-provoking ruminations like Holmes’ “Let My Son See Africa.” 
More than just a performer, Clint Holmes has a visible legacy in the entertainment industry. Serving briefly as a co-announcer on the Late Show, Holmes was initially recognized as a talent by the Hollywood celebrity Joan Rivers. Holmes eventually developed a highly successful talk and variety show on WWOR-TV called New York at Night, winning an Emmy for his work. Holmes has appeared in People’s Choice Awards, Miss America Pageants, and the Emmy Awards, providing world class entertainment to millions of television viewers.
