The Craig Lewis band is a duo comprised of members, Zuri Craig and Jeffrey Lewis. The duo turned to Youtube, as so many rising stars do, to gain a following. And it paid off!  The groups remixed version of the theme song to “The Brady Bunch” garnered the attention of many including; mogul Tyler Perry. He was so impressed with their talent that he asked the singers to join his hit stage play, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family. The duo traveled across the country with Tyler and company; which helped grow their fan base.

The Craig Lewis band formed after the two met at a talent show in college (Clark Atlanta University) and immediately developed a working chemistry.

“We hit it off. Our chemistry was natural. We knew we had to come together and sing,” said Lewis.

The two both love Gospel and R&B, and they have put their unique touch on merging the two art forms together; creating beautiful, original music.  The band is picking up where famous male duo acts like K-Ci and JoJo left off.

After forming a duo in college, the two started uploading videos to the masses, made a name for themselves as contestants on America’s Got Talent (placed 5th), and in stage plays. The pair worked with some of the best in the business during their journey. They performed a duet with Yolanda Adams during their time on AGT, and performed spot dates with Fantasia during one of her tours.
