FORT WAYNE—Lance Tolbert is not a stranger to music excellence. He continues to soar in his musical efforts. “The Best Man Holiday” film, which opened nationwide prior to the Thanksgiving holiday featured a song, “I Still Have You” sung by recording artist Charlie Wilson and co-written by Fort Wayne’s own Lance Tolbert. Lance’s expertise in music has taken him around the world with superstars such as Mariah Carey, Will.i.am and a number of other musical giants. His latest endeavor is a song that landed on Britney Spears’ new album that was just released world-wide. Lance co-wrote the song “Chillin’ With You,” which also features Britney’s sister Jamie Lynn.

As a valued musician, songwriter and producer, Lance has also performed with and created music for artist such as Jennifer Hudson, Cee Lo Green, The Backstreet Boys, Fantasia, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi and Michelle Williams. Lance has also appeared in performances on all of the major networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) performing on late night TV shows: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and twice on the Oprah Winfrey show.

Travels to London, Singapore, Dubai, Australia, Turkey, Paris, Canada, Austria, Egypt, Monaco, Southeast Asia, China and Japan have increased Lance’s appreciation for other cultures and their love of American music.
