He dresses as Liberace, performs with Muppets, and does 360-degree flips with a grand piano at his fingertips. He's a genre-breaking artist who has garnered millions of fans. Now, CeeLo Green finally opens up, revealing his personal story and what it took for this underdog to find his voice and maintain his individuality while rising to the top. At times gritty and always truthful, this memoir will be threaded through with some hope, some inspiration, and some advice, along with narration by CeeLo's "brother from another mother" Big Gipp. Everybody's Brother is a theatrical, artistic statement that perfectly captures its memorable maverick author.

About the Author:

CeeLo Green is a Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, actor, entrepreneur, pop culture and fashion icon, and coach on NBC's hit singing competition, The Voice. His single "F*ck You" (aka "Forget You") was an international sensation. He is a solo artist as well as a member of hip-hop group Goodie Mob and former frontman of soul duo Gnarls Barkley. Born and raised in Southwest Atlanta, he now lives in Los Angeles.

Big Gipp, a founding member of Goodie Mob, has a solo career and has contributed to several collaborations with other music artists over the years.

David Wild is a New York Times bestselling author, a contributing editor to Rolling Stone, and an Emmy-nominated television writer and producer.

From Publishers Weekly:

Pop star Cee Lo calls himself a sensitive and magical child feeling lost and terribly alone in the wilderness in his outrageous new memoir, assisted by his longtime pal Big Gipp and writer David Wild. Born to a hardworking nurse in Atlanta, Thomas DeCarlo Burton (aka Cee Lo) remembers both the hard knocks of his early life, the death of his father when Cee Lo was two years old, and hearing the mysterious sounds of a visitation from the Good God of the Holy Groove in his grandmother's living room. He was always a fancy dresser, a self-described half-angel-half-devil, who dropped acid, smoked grass, and shoplifted as a young tough. Influenced by the likes of James Brown, Jackie Wilson, Bill Withers, Tupac, and Prince, he created an outsized, flamboyant persona, which, along with his soulful voice, enthralled audiences. He eventually became a judge on the hit TV show The Voice. Brassy, often snarky, and totally madcap, Cee Lo mouths off in this ribald tell-all, to the enjoyment of his fans and newbies everywhere.
