Anthony David Harrington (born December 4, 1971), better known as Anthony David, is an American R&B singer-songwriter. He is best known for his 2008 song "Words", a duet with contemporary R&B singer India.Arie.
Anthony David was born in Savannah, Georgia, but got involved in the music business in Atlanta. There he met India.Arie, an R&B singer from Atlanta and have since become friends. David's first song written for Arie was entitled "Part of My Life" for Arie's 7x Grammy nominated album Acoustic Soul. David also toured with Arie in support of her album.
In 2004, he released his first independent album Three Chords & The Truth. Alongside India.Arie, he opened up for her shows with songs from his album, thereby getting more fame. Then eventually in 2006, he released his second independent album The Red Clay Chronicles, of which also garnered attention from opening for India.Arie's shows. After touring with Arie, David teamed up with her once again to co-write and produce "There's Hope" for Arie's third studio album. His third release, 2008's Acey Duecy, is a combination of both R&B and soul music. The album, with the release of its first single "Words", a duet with Arie, has given the album more attention.
Anthony's fourth album, released on February 22, 2011, was entitled As Above So Below and finds him teaming up with a new production partner – Nashville, Tennessee's Shannon Sanders – in addition to such guest vocalists as upcoming Atlanta songstress Algebra; rapper Phonte from Little Brother; plus cousin Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men. The first single from the album, "4Evermore" featuring Algebra and Phonte, became David's first top 20 R&B hit in the US charts where it has peaked at #18.
