The veteran singer was born Thomas John Woodward in 1940 and began singing at an early age. He was only 25 when he scored his first big hit, the dance tune It’s Not Unusual. In 1966, he won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

This early accolade was followed by an MTV Video Music Award in 1989, as well as not one but two Brit Awards. In 2000, he received one for Best British Male, and in 2003, another for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Three years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth for his contributions to music.

Jones’s career has spanned six decades, with hits such as It’s Not Unusual, What’s New Pussycat?, Delilah, She’s a Lady, and a cover of the Prince’s song, Kiss, gained him fame worldwide. His versatility as a performer allows him to sing a range of songs in the following genres: pop, R&Bshow tunescountry, dance, soul, and gospel.
