Starting as Lead singer of the group Niteflyte on Arista Records with several hits, then as a solo artist on A&M Records (releasing the global smash / soul anthem "So Fine"), to his current status of being an independent performer, Howard is still wowing fans around the world as a solo artist making sweet, sweet soul music.
