Feeling a bit camera shy


As you listen to ”Something New” and “Luv to You”, the body’s call to motion is signaled. Demonstrating his versatility, his passion becomes evident showing the sensitivity and strength of a mans love for a woman and that there is still commitment, desire and romance in song with tracks “Queen” and “Just Relax” which is currently being featured on Montgomery Alabama’s HOT 105.7 FM’s “Home Grown” program, hosted by DJ’s “Michelle C” and Costee McNair.

Presently residing in Tuskegee Alabama, JR Blu was born June 2,1982 at the Bolivar County Hospital in Cleveland, Mississippi, the only son of William and Clara Fonville, William Fonville Jr. aka JR BLU, grew up in nearby Ruleville, Mississippi. As a youth he participated in sports thru Junior High School but then found his true love at Ruleville Central High School and her name was music. That’s when he picked up the saxophone and joined the Ruleville Central Marching Band. His sophomore year he became the Drum Major and for the next three years led the “Little Sonic Boom” in their performances.

However before leaving Junior High School he forged an invaluable connection that would create an underlying passion that has fueled his soul’ til this very day. Blu and five of his friends formed a gospel group called the “Rising Sons”. During his years at RCH he began to hone his skills as a lyricist spending countless hours with pen and pad. While there he joined the school’s Gospel Choir and through his stellar performance was offered a scholarship in music to Mississippi Valley State University where he also was a part of the MVSU Gospel Choir and the Jazz Combo.

During his second year at MVSU Blu and two of his classmates, Jason Bernard and Jonathan Davenport formed the R&B trio Double Platinum. They performed at various functions at MVSU and local parties that led to a performance at the famed Isaac Hayes Club in Memphis, Tennessee. Double Platinum eventually broke up and the members found other projects, but kept in touch. JR Blu then began his pursuit of a solo career and the “LOVE STATION” cd was created.

JR Blu has performed at various venues and events over the last year a couple of which were several appearances at The Blackberry in Albany Ga., a performance at The Twelfth Stone for 105.3 fm Selma Al., as a featured artist at “A Mid-Summers Night of Poetry, Jazz and Soul” hosted by Foxie 105 fm in Columbus Ga., and the most recent was as an opening act for the “Queen of Blues” Ms. Denise LaSalle at Victoryland Dog Track and Casino’s 20th Anniversary in Shorter Al. this past November which was very well received. Blu has also performed the for the Boys and Girls Club of South Central Alabama’s “STOP THE VIOLENCE” campaign as well as performing the National Anthem at sporting events for Auburn University, The Montgomery Biscuits Baseball Team, Tuskegee University and others.

JR Blu’s has a wonderfully glowing future and his brilliance is yet to be seen…
So just keep your eyes open, His star’s soon to streak across the horizon….
