Walt Disney Records:
Biography of Collin Raye
With three platinum albums under his belt, Collin Raye contributes a new rendition of
"A Whole New World," from Aladdin. Raye first catapulted into the hearts of country music listeners in 1991, shortly after the release of "Love, Me" -- from his critically acclaimed debut album, All I Can Be -- a touching ballad that spent three weeks at No. 1.
Raye's latest work, I Think About You, debuted at No. 6 on Billboard magazine's Top Country Albums chart, marking the highest debut of his career. Raye has seen chart-topping success with such radio staples as "Love, Me," "In This Life," "That Was a River," "Little Rock," and "My Kind of Girl," propelling his three Epic albums -- All I Can Be, In This Life, and Extremes -- to platinum status along the way. A three-time nominee for CMA's Song of the Year, the singer has consistently seen his albums listed among the year's finest country releases by publications such as USA Today and Country America.
Raye is active in a number of charitable organizations, including the Dallas Cowboys Special Olympics Benefit; the Emily Harrison Foundation for head injuries, which he has chaired since 1990; Al-Anon and Ala-Teen; Easter Seals; Boy's Town; and the National Academy of Songwriters.
