Surviving a near fatal car crash R&B singer Gio aka Governor is Back!
Known and respected from his days and affiliations with Atlantic Records, 50Cent, Dr. Dre, or T.I.â€™s Grand Hustle imprint Gio, (aka Governor) is back stronger than ever. He has an impressive discography that includes three studio albums and he is a Billboard charting singer/songwriter. His music has been heard on several movie soundtracks including Tyler Perryâ€™s â€śDaddyâ€™s Little Girls,â€ť and more recently the single, â€śFavorite Pillow,â€ť was featured in the Movie DEUCES, starring Meagan Good & Lorenz Tate.
With a smooth, melodic voice he truly embraces the essence of R&B that so many fans yearn for today. 50Cent once said that Washington was â€śextremely talentedâ€ť and that â€śhe is about to blow.â€ť However, life had other plans, and a detour or two. Despite those obstacles, Gio is back and impacting R&B with his latest song, â€śI Give You Me.â€ť Gio officially released “I Give You Me,” on June 14th of this year. â€śFavorite Pillow,â€ť is next,Â and a full album will follow later this year. When asked about who he feels is an influential artist right now he replied Â “I think that there are a few R&B singers doing their thing, I’m happy for anyone winning! Its all a game but the game has changed, for now. Still, what goes around comes back around again! Music has power, it can make you docile or make you align your energy to a source. I’m all about that POSITIVE force! And, it’s reemerging!”
From a small county called Charles City, Va he has been pursuing his passion for music for over a decade. His musical influences include Marvin Gaye, Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, Teena Marie and many more!Â With a truly magnetic personality and stage presence, he has garnered fans worldwide.
