At the ripe old age of four Charles' career began. Listening to his mother sing at home and at church. By the age of ten, Charles formed the family group "The Blackmans". Where he began honing his vocal skills . After a few short years, Charles knew exactly what he was destined to be. Leaving home at seventeen, Charles formed a trio called "The Pastels", later finding out the name was already patented by another group. For years the group toured under the name"Blackman and Company", which disbanded and reformed later in Chicago. After maturing as an entertainer, who specialized in dominating his audience mercilessly, he was ready for his big break: Entering Ed Mcmahon's "Star Search" in Los Angeles. Overwhelming the audience and judges with a perfect score. Offers poured in, but Charles couldn't resist the opportunity to sing alongdide his boyhood idols who became his mentors. The late, great, legendary Eddie Kendricks, and the powerhouse Dennis Edwards, both formally of "The Temptations". After the passing of his mentor, Kendricks, Charles went to North Carolina to sing with the legendary Bill Pinckney's Drifters. After his stint with the Drifters, Charles went to Chicago after hearing of a producer called Eric "E-Funk" Ridgner, within an hour of meeting, they were in the studio composing what we dared to believe would later become a series of hits, This Compilation of songs, the Album "Born Dangerous"!
