Byron Stingily

Byron Stingily is an African American R&B and house-music singer born in Chicago, Illinois, known for his falsetto voice. He is now a principal at a school in Chicago.[1]


Stingily had several hit records in the 1980s and 1990s as the lead singer of Ten City.[2] As a solo artist, he had his biggest success on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, where he hit No. 1 three times. In 1997 he spent a week in the top spot with "Get Up (Everybody)" where he sampled Sylvester's "Dance (Disco Heat)", then hit No. 1 again in 1998 with a remake of Sylvester's "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)", produced by Damien Mendis and Stuart Bradbury.

"That's the Way Love Is," a No. 1 dance hit in 1989 for Ten City, brought him to No. 1 again in 1999 when he re-recorded it on his own. Some of his recent singles have been released on the UK-based record label Defected Records.
