Memphis born and Memphis bred, Kameron Timothy Whalum has music in his blood. From both his paternal great-grandparents, to both sets of maternal and paternal grandparents, to his Whalum Uncles, to both his brothers, to his parents, Kameron Timothy Whalum “got it honest”!
Leaving Memphis for college, Kameron honed his instrumental and vocal talents at Morehouse College, where he sang in the world-renowned Glee Club, and performed with the “House Of Funk” marching band, and the jazz band. At the University of Memphis, he was a member of the Southern Comfort Jazz Orchestra.
And just before being “called up” by international star Bruno Mars, Kameron matriculated at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. His national television debut was alongside Jessie J on Saturday Night Live in March of 2011. Three weeks later, he joined Bruno Mars as a member of the “Hooligans”.
Kameron has performed with Bruno on the MTV EMA’s, MTV VMA’s, Billboard Music Awards, Canada’s Much Music Awards, the GRAMMY’s, The Halftime Show of Super Bowl XLVII, as well as countless local telecasts.
