Fabrice Maxime Sylvain Morvan, also known as Fab Morvan is a French singer, dancer, and model who was part of the pop duo Milli Vanilli, along with Rob Pilatus. He began his musical career with a path filled with successes, controversies, and a strong sense of perseverance.
Fab Morvan was born in Paris, France, on May 14, 1966 to parents from Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe. When Morvan was eighteen, he relocated to Germany to pursue his love of dancing and modeling. He rose to prominence in the dance scene after being influenced by a variety of musical genres, such as pop, hip-hop, soul, and funk. He met Rob Pilatus at a Munich nightclub, which provided the impetus for the formation of the notorious musical duet Milli Vanilli.
Frank Farian, a music producer, helped launch Morvan and Pilatus into the spotlight. “Girl You Know It’s True,” Milli Vanilli’s debut album, was well praised and included smash songs including “Baby Don’t Forget My Number,” “Girl I’m Gonna Miss You,” and “Blame It on the Rain.” In 1990, the pair even won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
Nevertheless, Milli Vanilli’s fame took a bad turn when reports surfaced about them lip-syncing live and about their vocal contributions being questioned. Later on, it came to light that none of the recordings featuring Morvan and Pilatus had any vocals. “Girl You Know It’s True,” the album they released with Arista Records, became the best-selling record to be removed from the library when the Grammy Award was revoked.
Together with Farian, Morvan and Pilatus worked on a comeback, releasing “The Moment of Truth” in 1991, to restore their reputation. But the endeavor was in vain, and the two-faced more difficulties.
Following the fallout, Morvan and Pilatus found themselves in a commercial for Carefree sugarless gum, humorously lip-syncing to an opera recording. The duo moved to Los Angeles and released an album under the name Rob & Fab, but it saw limited success, with only around 2,000 copies sold.
Morvan worked as a radio DJ at KIIS-FM in Los Angeles and as a session musician after the death Milli Vanilli’s death. He went on tours, had appearances in documentaries, and never stopped pursuing his love of music.
In 2003, Morvan released his first solo album, “Love Revolution,” showcasing his talent as a producer, writer, and singer. Over the years, he collaborated with DJs and producers, further establishing his presence in the music scene. His solo career included the release of singles like “Anytime” in 2011 and “See the Light” in 2012, performed with his new band, Fabulous Addiction.
