Kisean Anderson, also known as Sean Kingston, was born in Miami, Florida. He spent most of his childhood in Kingston, Jamaica, after moving there at the age of six. Kingston suffered a rough childhood and at one point was even homeless. Despite his struggles, Kingston remained grounded and slowly began to turn his life around. He took his lyrical and vocal skills and started working Miami's talent shows and the showcase circuit. His hard work paid off, eventually sharing the stage with top artists like Pitbull, Ludacris, and Trick Daddy. Kingston got his big break when producer Jonathan Rotem listened to his demo and signed the young rapper to Beluga Heights record label.
At the young age of 16, Kingston released his first single "Colors" in 2007, featuring The Game and Rick Ross. His second single, "Beautiful Girls," made history as one of the fastest climbing songs ever to hit the charts.
This artist has come a long way, having sold more than six million digital singles, 4.5 million ringtones and counting, and he has toured with popular artists like Gwen Stefani and Chris Brown. Kingston's sophomore album Tomorrow features music that reflects his growth as a young man. His sound is a mix of rap, reggae, and pop, which is unlike anything ever produced. This young artist will continue to thrive bringing us the smooth beats of the islands.
He prefers writing songs without using curse words.
He uses the name Sean Kingston to represent Kingston, the capital of Jamaica.
