Vanilla Ice-Bio 2005
Rob Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice has seen his share of ups and downs in his professional career. Vanilla Ice exploded on the pop music scene in 1990 with his CD "To The Extreme" selling over 17 million copies. His single "Ice Ice Baby" has weathered well over the last 15 years and is a pop classic still in great demand today.
Rob has recently been seen by TV audiences in VH1's "Behind the Music", "Celebrity Boxing", "Hollywood Squares" and is fresh off appearing in the WB Reality TV Show "Surreal Life". Vanilla Ice just finished taping the VH1 program "Remaking of Vanilla Ice" which will be scheduled to air May 2005 by the network. Rob also performed concerts in Germany for a week and just filmed another Reality Show "The Farm" (a highly rated TV show in Europe) for 3 weeks in the UK.
Rob has starred in an independent film, The Helix...Loaded, released in select theaters earlier this year and the film will be picked up for DVD distribution and cable television. His new album "Platinum Underground" has just been recorded and mixed with release date and street date in mid-August. The album includes a hot new VH1 single produced by a very high profile production team, Track Starz (Chingy, 50 Cent, Gwen Stefani).
With great demand in concert and personal appearances, Vanilla Ice has been playing dates in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, South
East Asia and is planning to tour the UK and Europe in the fall.
Vanilla Ice just flew to New York City to appear on NBC's "Today Show" to pitch NBC's "Hit Me Baby One More Time" in which he will participate and be performing on the second episode which will air June 9th. The iconic rapper/rocker is currently enjoying making new music, appearing on TV shows, and plans to do more movies and commercials. Just like the song that he is performing on "Hit Me Baby One More Time" Rob's a "Survivor".
