Vince Gibbs was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He became interested in playing
musical instruments at a very young age. He started taking drum lessons at 8 years
old. In high school he picked up the saxophone, guitar, bass and eventually keyboards.
Vince played in various top 40 bands and traveled all over the world. No matter where
Vince seemed to go, he could not escape people always commenting on how much he reminded
them of Prince. After seeing his first "Legends In Concert" show in 1994, Vince decided
to become a professional Prince impersonator.
Since then Vince has established himself as one of the top Prince impersonators in
the world. In 2002, Vince was picked by Missy Elliott to appear as Prince in her
"Work It" video. The video went on to win MTV's "Music Video Of The Year" award for
2002. Missy Elliott contacted Vince again to perform with her at Dick Clark's American
Music Awards on Jan 13, 2003.
Vince has performed for countless corporate events sponsored by top Fortune 500 companies
all over the USA. In addition, John Stuart's "Legends In Concert" out of Las Vegas
has hired Vince to perform in their one night production shows all across America.
"I really do admire Prince's creativity and musicianship," says Vince. "I think I
am very lucky to be able to do what I am doing. In a strange way, I feel a unique
spiritual and musical connection with Prince."
