BIOGRAPHY:

Frustrated by guys his age and their lack of commitment to music, Rickey moved himself out of the pack, away from college, and become a well-known musician as he toured with Gladys Knight. His go-getter attitude led him to collaborate with some of the most powerful pop and soul musicians, including Whitney Houston, Alicia Keyes, and Ray Charles. He now works as the music director of American Idol.
