Biography

Humphrey Campbell is a Surinamese-Dutch singer and record producer. Campbell moved to the Netherlands in 1973 before Suriname’s independence in 1975 and later studied and taught at the Hilversum Conservatorium. He gained experience in musical theatre. He represented the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, performing last of the 23 entrants and joined on stage by brothers Carlo and Ben. Campbell’s backing singers in Malmö included Ruth Jacott; the following year Campbell would return the favour by appearing as a backing singer when Jacott represented the Netherlands in the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest. Campbell and Jacott would subsequently become a couple till 2011. Following his Eurovision appearances, Campbell concentrated on his career as a producer, although in 1997, under the name of CC Campbell with brothers Carlo and Charles, he released an album, “Souls in Harmony”.
