Jamie Foxx

 
Jamie Foxx
Eric Marlon Bishop was born in Terrell, Texas on December 13, 1967.[2] He is the son of Darrell Bishop (renamed Shahid Abdula following his conversion to Islam),[3] who sometimes worked as a stockbroker, and Louise Annette Talley Dixon. Shortly after his birth, Foxx was adopted and raised by his mother's adoptive parents, Esther Marie (Nelson), a domestic worker and nursery operator, and Mark Talley, a yard worker.[4][5][6] He has had little contact with his birth parents, who were not part of his upbringing.[7] Foxx was raised in the black quarter of Terrell, which at the time was a racially segregated community.[8] He has often acknowledged his grandmother's influence in his life as one of the greatest reasons for his success.[5][9] Foxx began playing the piano when he was five years old.[10] He had a strict Baptist upbringing,[5][11] and as a teenager he was a part-time pianist and choir leader in Terrell's New Hope Baptist Church.[7] His natural talent for telling jokes was already in evidence as a third grader, when his teacher would use him as a reward: if the class behaved, Foxx would tell them jokes. Foxx attended Terrell High School, where he received top grades and played basketball and football (as quarterback). His ambition was to play for the Dallas Cowboys, and he was the first player in the school's history to pass for more than 1,000 yards.[7][12] He also sang in a band called Leather and Lace.[7] After completing high school, Foxx received a scholarship to United States International University, where he studied classical music and composition.Foxx first told jokes at a comedy club's open mic night in 1989, after accepting a girlfriend's dare. When he found that female comedians were often called first to perform, he changed his name to Jamie Foxx, feeling that it was a name ambiguous enough to disallow any biases.[7][14] He chose his surname as a tribute to the black comedian Redd Foxx.[14] Foxx joined the cast of In Living Color in 1991, where his recurrent character Wanda also shared a name with Redd's friend and co-worker, LaWanda Page. Following a recurring role in the comedy-drama sitcom Roc,[15] Foxx went on to star in his own sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show, from 1996 to 2001.At the 2006 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards, Foxx won Best Duet/Collaboration with Kanye West for "Gold Digger" and tied with Mary J. Blige's "Be Without You" for Video of the Year. On December 8, 2006, Foxx received four Grammy Award® nominations, which included Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for Love Changes featuring Mary J. Blige, Best R&B Album for Unpredictable, Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for Georgia by Ludacris & Field Mob featuring Jamie Foxx, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for Unpredictable featuring Ludacris. Following on from these successes, Foxx went on to appear in the box-office hits Jarhead, Miami Vice and Dreamgirls, which lifted his profile even higher as a bankable star in Hollywood.In 2013, Foxx was cast as President James Sawyer in White House Down alongside Channing Tatum.[38] The following year, Foxx appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the villain Electro, and co-starred with Quvenzhané Wallis in Annie, Sony's Will Smith and Jay-Z produced update of the comic strip-turned-musical.[39] Director Oliver Stone has also confirmed that Foxx will play Martin Luther King Jr. in his upcoming Steven Spielberg-produced biopic.[40] His October 2014 Deja Vu duet with Dionne Warwick appears on the Feels So Good album released by Warwick. Foxx released his fifth studio album, Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses, on May 18, 2015. It debuted atop the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts and at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.[41] In 2015, Foxx's voice was featured in the chorus on the Ariana Grande song, "Focus".[42] Beginning with its debut on May 25, 2017, Foxx is now the host and executive producer of the Fox game show Beat Shazam, which is described as a hip, 21st-century update of the popular mid- to late-20th century ubiquitous radio and TV game show Name That Tune. Three sets of two partners try to beat the computer "Shazam" in correctly identifying the titles of popular songs in the shortest amount of time in incrementally higher amounts of money, with one team eventually vying for a potential prize of $1 million.Foxx has two daughters: Corinne Bishop (born 1994)[7] and Annalise (born August 2009).[46] Corinne made her formal debut at the Bal des débutantes in November 2014 and was named Miss Golden Globe 2016 on November 18, 2015
