Aaron Neville has had a career as a solo artist and also as one of the Neville Brothers. Of mixed African American and Native American heritage, his music also features Cajun influence. He is perhaps most famous for the song "Tell it Like it Is."
The Neville Brothers had a hit in 1989 with Aaron singing "Yellow Moon" from the album of the same name. The same year, Aaron appeared with Linda Ronstadt on her album Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, from which their duet "Don't Know Much" was a successful single. The performance won a Grammy in 1989 for Best Pop Duo.
He also won a Grammy with the Neville Brothers in 1989 for "Healing Chant" (also from "Yellow Moon") as Best Pop Instrumental (Aaron is a percussionist as well as singer). In 1994, he and Trisha Yearwood won a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for "I Fall to Pieces". He was named Best Male Singer two straight years in the Rolling Stone critics' poll.
He has a tattoo of a sword on his left cheek as well as others in more conventional places.
