Honorable/Famous West-Indian Americans

Gerald Maxwell Riveraknown as Maxwell is an American singer-songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist. His music spans R&B,funk and soul, but he is best known as one of the exemplars of the subgenre neo-soul movement of the latter 1990s. After a successful debut albumMaxwell’s Urban Hang Suite, he released EmbryaNow and a live album MTV Unplugged. After an eight-year hiatus, he returned with the platinum-selling BLACKsummers'night, the first of a trilogy. He has received 12 Grammy nominations with two wins.

“Maxwell was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of a Haitian mother and a Puerto Rican father. His mother grew up in a devout Baptist household in Haiti. Maxwell’s father died in a plane crash when Maxwell was three years old. The experience made him a deeply religious child, and he began singing in his Baptist church; however, he did not really get serious about music until age 17.”
