In this long-awaited memoir the groundbreaking record producer chronicles his struggles, his success, and the celebrated artists that made him a legend.

Legendary music producer L. A. Reid—the man behind artists such as Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Kanye West, Rihanna, TLC, Outkast, Pink, Justin Bieber, and Usher—changed the music business forever. Now, he tells his story, taking fans on an intimate tour of his life. Sing to Me is a fascinating journey from Reid’s small-town R&B roots in Cincinnati, Ohio, and his work as a drummer to his fame as a Grammy Award–winning music producer and his gig as a judge on the hit reality show, The X Factor.

Reid takes readers behind the scenes of the music industry, charting his rise to fame and sharing stories of the countless singers he’s met, nurtured, and molded into stars. Part music memoir, part inspirational business guide, this engrossing memoir showcases Reid’s trademark passion and ingenuity and introduces a multifaceted genius who continues to shape pop culture today.
