Carl Anderson, born February 27,
1945 in Virginia, utilized his military service in order to sing in Air Force
talent contests. He co-founded and became the lead singer for The Second Eagle
in 1969, and with them recorded tracks from the rock musical Jesus Christ
. He ended up understudying Ben Vereen for the part of Judas when
the show came to Broadway. He got rave reviews when he took over the part after
Vereen fell ill, and he was then cast in the 1973 film adaptation of the stage
show. His acting gigs kept him from releasing a proper his solo album until
1982’s Absence Without Love. His particular mix of jazz and soul would
reach its commercial height on “Friends and Lovers”, a 1986 duet with
Gloria Loring that climbed all the way to number 2 on the pop chart. He would
release nine solo albums, but also sang on recordings for other musicians
including Stevie Wonder, Kenny Loggins, Weather Report, and Nancy Wilson. In
the early 90s he returned to the part that made him famous, touring for five
years as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar. He would have another success
on stage in 1997 playing Duke Ellington in the biographical musical Play On!
He passed away February 23, 2004 from leukemia.
