Tony Terry was born in Washington D.C. and got his start in R&B as a back-up singer for the group Sweet Sensation.
In 1987, Terry got a deal with Epic Records. His album Forever Yours was released in 1988 and had several solid singles. 'She's Fly' reached #10 on the R&B charts, 'Lovey Dovey' hit #4 and 'Forever Yours' reached #16. Unfortunately, none of his tracks ever did well on the Pop charts.
Terry followed up his album with a self-titled release in 1991. The album featured Terry's biggest hit to date, 'With You,' which reached #6 on the R&B charts and #14 on the Hot 100. The album's second single, 'Everlasting Love' reached #6 on the R&B charts.
Moving to Virgin Records, Terry released his third album in 1994, Heart Of A Man. The album failed to perform commercially as well as his previous albums and did not make a significant impact on the charts.
In addition to his musical efforts, Terry has performed in several plays. Terry appeared in the production of The Wiz with Grace Jones, Peabo Bryson, CeCe Peniston and Tasha Scott. He also appeared in Sisterella, Mama, I want To Sing and Tall Dark and Handsome.
In 2006, Terry released a gospel album titled Changed.
