Global Friend Jamie Foxx Releases New Album

Global Down Syndrome Foundation supporter and Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award recipient Jamie Foxx is headed back to the Billboard charts.

Foxx’s sister DeOndra Dixon, a Global Ambassador and fellow Quincy Jones Award winner, undoubtedly approves of the new album title. Dixon has seen Hollywood up close and personal. She is a star in her own right, having appeared in Foxx’s music video for “Blame It,” and having danced on stage at the Grammys. In addition, Dixon models each year at the Be Beautiful Be Yourself Fashion Show aside such celebrities as Alec Baldwin, and has graced the front cover of Down Syndrome World magazine.

Jamie Foxx and sister, DeOndra Dixon, for People MagazineWhen Foxx announced the release of “Hollywood” last month on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” he talked about how much his sister enjoys spending time with R&B star Chris Brown. Brown joins Foxx for the already-released single “You Changed Me” on the album.

“Some of the things that people don’t get to see Chris on the inside like when he comes and dances with my sister who has Down syndrome for hours,” Foxx told Kimmel.

Foxx is a five-time Grammy nominee, and won Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group for “Blame It.” He is also an Oscar-winning actor.

“Hollywood” is his first album since 2010’s “Best Night of My Life.”
