Baby Can I Hold You - Tracy Chapman

Tracy Chapman (Cleveland, Ohio, March 30, 1964) is an American singer of folk, blues, soul and pop rock, winner of 4 Grammy Awards, made world famous for her songs "Fast Car", "Baby Can I Hold You" and "Give Me One Reason".

Tracy Chapman has been playing guitar and writing songs since childhood. She joined the "A Better Chance" program, aimed at identifying talented black children for academic development, which allowed her to attend Wooster School in Connecticut and later Tufts University in Medford (Massachussets).

In May 2004, Tufts University awarded her an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree for her contribution as a socially engaged artist and her artistic achievements.

While in college, Chapman began performing on the streets, playing his guitar in cafes in Cambridge, Massachusetts. While awaiting her academic graduation, she signed to SBK Records in 1988, releasing her debut album, titled "Tracy Chapman"-which was soon critically acclaimed, and went on to tour and win over audiences. After his appearance on a TV show in honor of Nelson Mandela's 70th birthday in June, his song "Fast Car" reached the top of the charts in the United States, reaching the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 list, while others tracks were also among the most listened to, "Baby Can I Hold You" among them.

The album sold well, achieving several RIAA sales certificates (platinum records), and winning the following year (1989) four Grammy Awards, including best new artist.

Chapman then became an artist linked to Amnesty International, participating in the "Human Rights Now!" tour. According to some sources, Chapman became one of the most influential artists in the American university environment in the 1980s.

His follow-up album, Crossroads (1989), did not have the same commercial success. In 1992, when he released his next work - Matters of the Heart - his audience was restricted to dedicated fans. Although everyone believes her career is over, she surprised analysts in 1995 with New Beginning, which sold over 3 million copies in the US alone, and earned her a Grammy in 1997 for best rock song.

In 2000 Telling Stories was an album with songs more geared towards rock than towards the pop style, which until then followed. The album's title song was played a lot on European radio, and in some North American segments. In 2001 came the collection, called Collection.

The sixth unreleased album was 2002's Let It Rain, which Chapman released on tour in Europe and the US in 2003.

Where You Live, the singer's seventh album, was released in September 2005, with which she performed in the United States and Europe.

On November 11, 2008, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of her first album, Tracy Chapman released her eighth album, Our Bright Future, starting the following day, in Brussels, with a tour european. The song "Thinking of you" stands out from this new album, already considered one of Chapman's most beautiful and sensitive compositions.
