Donald McKinley Glover Jr. was born on September 25, 1983 at Edwards Air Force Base in Kern County, California. He was raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia. His mother, Beverly (née Smith), is a retired daycare provider, and his father, Donald Glover Sr., is a retired postal worker. His parents also served as foster parents for 14 years. Glover was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness. He attended DeKalb School of the Arts and was captioned “Most Likely to Write for The Simpsons” in his high school yearbook.
Glover graduated from the New York University Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in Dramatic Writing (2006). While at Tisch, Glover self-produced the independent mixtape The Younger I Get, which was not released and was disowned by Glover for being “too-raw ramblings” of what he calls a “decrepit Drake”. Glover also began disc jockeying and producing electronic music under the moniker MC D—later as mcDJ—remixing Sufjan Stevens’ album Illinois (2005).
2006–2010: Derrick Comedy, Community, and mixtapes
In 2006, Glover was contacted by producer David Miner, to whom he sent writing samples including a spec script that he had written for The Simpsons. Miner and Tina Fey were impressed by Glover’s work and invited him to become a writer for the NBC sitcom 30 Rock. Glover was a writer for 30 Rock from 2006 to 2009, where he also had occasional cameo appearances. He was presented the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Comedy Series at the February 2009 ceremony for his work on the third season. Glover’s musical stage name, Childish Gambino, came from the Wu-Tang Clan’s name generator. In June 2008, he released the independent mixtape Sick Boi. In 2008, Glover unsuccessfully auditioned to play President Barack Obama on the sketch comedy program Saturday Night Live; the role went to cast member Fred Armisen. Glover also became a member of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy, having appeared in their sketches on YouTube since 2006, along with Dominic Dierkes, Meggie McFadden, DC Pierson, and Dan Eckman. The group wrote and starred in a feature-length film, Mystery Team, released in theaters in 2009. Bobby Moynihanand Aubrey Plaza also starred in the film alongside Glover.
Glover became known to a wider audience with Dan Harmon’s NBC sitcom Community, which premiered in September 2009. Glover played Troy Barnes, a former high school star quarterback who quickly abandons his former jock mentality and embraces his nerdy, childish side as the result of his friendship with Abed Nadir (played by Danny Pudi). Glover did not return as a full-time cast member for the show’s fifth season, appearing in the first five of the season’s 13 episodes. Despite speculation that he was leaving to pursue his rap career as Childish Gambino, a series of hand-written notes that Glover posted to Instagram revealed that his reasons were more personal, citing a need for projects that offered him more independence as he worked through some personal issues. Although Harmon approached Glover about returning to the show for its sixth season, Glover declined, stating both show and audience would be better served by the closure of his character omitted from the story.
In September 2009, he released his second mixtape Poindexter. A pair of mixtapes, titled I Am Just a Rapper and I Am Just A Rapper 2, were released in close succession in 2010 and followed that July by his fifth mixtape Culdesac. In March 2010, Glover performed a 30-minute set on the stand-up showcase program Comedy Central Presents.
In May 2010, a fan suggested Glover for the role of Peter Parker in the then-upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man film, encouraging his supporters to retweet the hashtag “#donald4spiderman”. The campaign, originally started to see how far social networking could carry a message, quickly gained a large following. The call for Glover to be allowed to audition for the role was supported by Spider-Man creator Stan Lee. Glover was not given an audition and the role instead went to Andrew Garfield. He later revealed that he was never contacted for the role by anyone from Sony Pictures. Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis, who announced Miles Morales, an African-American version of Spider-Man, a year later, said he had conceived of the character before Glover’s campaign went viral. Bendis gave credit to Glover for influencing the new hero’s looks for Spider-Man; Bendis has said, “I saw him in the costume [on Community] and thought, ‘I would like to read that book.'” Glover later voiced this incarnation of Spider-Man on the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series. Glover received the Rising Comedy Star award at the Just for Laughs festival in July 2010 and was featured in Gap’s 2010 holiday advertising campaign.
2011–2014: Camp and Because the Internet
His first extended play, titled EP, was released as a free digital download in March 2011. A music video for the song “Freaks and Geeks” was released in that month and Glover hosted the mtvU Wooodie Awards, held live at South By Southwest. Glover commenced his nationwide IAMDONALD Tour in April. The tour was a one-man live show that consisted of rap, comedy, and video segments.Glover appeared at the 2011 Bonnaroo Music Festival as both Childish Gambino and as a comedian, performing a set with Bill Bailey. His one-hour stand-up special, Weirdo, aired on Comedy Central in November 2011. Glover worked with friend and film composer Ludwig Göransson on his debut studio album throughout 2011. Prior to its release, signed to Glassnote Records and embarked on The Sign-Up Tour. The album, Camp, was released on November 15, 2011, backed by his debut single “Bonfire” and “Heartbeat”, which peaked at number 18 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and number 54 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Camp debuted at number eleven on the Billboard 200, selling 52,000 copies in the first week, and was generally well received by critics, with PopMatters writer Steve Lepore finding it to be “undoubtedly one of the best records of any genre to come out in 2011”. His Camp Gambino tour was scheduled to commence in March 2012, but was postponed to April after fracturing his foot.
Glover released the songs “Eat Your Vegetables” and “Fuck Your Blog” through his website in April and May. Throughout May and June, he premiered tracks from his sixth mixtape, Royalty, which was released as a free digital download in July. The album featured several artists, including his brother Stephen, under the alias Steve G. Lover III. The single “Trouble” by British artist Leona Lewis from her album Glassheart (2012) featured Gambino with a guest rap performance. The song peaked at No. 7 on the UK Singles Chart, making it his first UK top 10 single. In November 2012, Ludwig Göransson said he and Glover were in his studio coming up with new ideas for the next album which was to be “bigger” and “with more people involved.” In 2013, Glover signed on to create a music-themed show for FX titled Atlanta which he would star in, write, and executive produce. Consequently, Glover decided to reduce his work for NBC, and only appeared in the first five episodes of Community‘s fifth season. Although several networks were interested in picking up his half-hour comedy, he ultimately picked FX due to their willingness to work around his touring schedule. Glover appeared in a supporting role in the romantic comedy The To Do List (2013) and also guest starred in two episodes of the comedy-drama television series Girls in early 2013, as a Republican who is the love interest to Lena Dunham’s character.
Recording for his second studio album, Because the Internet, finished in October 2013 and it was released in December, debuting at number seven on the Billboard 200 chart. Because the Internet yielded the singles “3005”, “Crawl” and “Sweatpants”. “3005” peaked at number 8 on the UK R&B Chart and 64 on the Billboard Hot 100. To promote the album, the short film Clapping for the Wrong Reasons, written by and starring Glover, was released prior to the album’s release and serves as its prelude. Additionally, a 72-page screenplay designed to sync up with the album was also released. Because The Internet has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipping over 500,000 copies. From February to May 2014, he embarked on The Deep Web Tour. The Recording Industry Association of America certified “Heartbeat” gold in June 2014–making it Glover’s first gold certification.
Glover directed the music video for the song “The Pressure” by Jhené Aiko, whose previous single, “Bed Peace”, had featured a guest appearance by Glover. On October 2, he released a mixtape titled STN MTN and the following day an EP titled Kauai, which spawned the single “Sober”. While STN MTN was a free download, the proceeds of Kauai went to changing the policies for body worn video policing equipment and to maintaining and preserving Kauai island. Glover described them as a joint project and the “first concept mixtape ever” that continues the story told in Camp and Because the Internet. At the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Glover received his first Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album for Because the Internet and Best Rap Performance for “3005”.
2015–present: Film roles, Atlanta, and “Awaken, My Love!”
Glover appeared in three films in 2015. In the science fiction horror The Lazarus Effect, he played a scientist working with a team of researchers who brings a member of the team back to life with consequences. Glover played a singer in the comedy-drama Magic Mike XXL and performed a cover of the Bruno Mars song “Marry You” in the film, which was included in the soundtrack. His final release of the year, Ridley Scott’s science fiction The Martian, featured Glover as a Jet Propulsion Laboratory astrodynamicist who formulates a maneuver to help rescue an astronaut (played by Matt Damon) stranded on Mars. Glover contributed to the soundtrack of Creed (2015) – a film in the Rocky film series which was composed by Ludwig Göransson – providing vocals to the song “Waiting For My Moment” and co-wrote another titled “Breathe”.
FX ordered the pilot of Glover’s show Atlanta to a 10-episode season in October 2015 and it premiered on September 6, 2016 to widespread critical acclaim. Glover writes, occasionally directs, executive produces, and stars in the series as Earnest “Earn” Marks, a Princeton dropout who manages his rapper cousin as they navigate their way in the Atlanta rap scene. For his work on the show, Glover has been awarded various accolades, including Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy and Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, making him the first black person to win an Emmy for the latter category. Due to the success of the series, FX signed Glover to an exclusive deal to create and develop more shows for the network. The first of these shows, an animated series featuring the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, written and executive produced by Glover and his brother Stephen, was set to premiere in 2018, but was later canceled due to creative differences. Glover later posted an unofficial and unproduced script to his Twitter account, stating he wasn’t “too busy to work on Deadpool,” shutting down media speculations.
In September 2016, Glover held three performances – known as the “Pharos Experience” – in Joshua Tree, California, where he debuted songs from his third studio album “Awaken, My Love!”. The album was released in December, charting at number five on the Billboard 200 and it was later certified gold accumulating 500,000 in album-equivalent units. Considered a bold departure from his usual hip hop style as it primarily featured Glover singing rather than rapping, it saw him draw influences from psychedelic soul, funk and R&B music, particularly of the funk band Funkadelic. “Awaken, My Love!” produced the singles “Me and Your Mama”, “Redbone” (which peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100), and “Terrified”. Its vinyl release featured a virtual reality headset and an accompanying app that allowed owners access to virtual reality live performances from the Pharos Experience. The album was positively received by music critics and was nominated for both the 2018 Grammy Award for Album of the Year and Best Urban Contemporary Album, while “Redbone” won for Best Traditional R&B Performance and received nominations for Record of the Year and Best R&B Song. Glover performed “Terrified” at the award show’s 60th ceremony.
Glover played Aaron Davis in the superhero film Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). Davis is the uncle of the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man, whom Glover had voiced in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series. The casting was described as “a surprise treat for fans” by the film’s director Jon Watts, aware of his 2010 campaign to play the superhero.In April 2017, Time named Glover to its annual “100 Most Influential People in the World.” Tina Fey wrote the entry on Glover, who she said “embodies his generation’s belief that people can be whatever they want and change what it is they want, at any time.” Glover portrayed a young version of Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018); Calrissian was previously played by Billy Dee Williams in two films in the original Star Wars trilogy. Glover will star in the upcoming 2019 remake of the epic musical Disney film The Lion King (1994) as the voice of Simba, a young lion.
Glover announced his intention to retire the Childish Gambino pseudonym in June 2017, telling the audience “I’ll see you for the last Gambino album” before walking off stage at the Governors Ball Music Festival. He further explained his decision in an interview, feeling his musical career was no longer “necessary” and added “There’s nothing worse than like a third sequel” and “I like it when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that.” Glover signed with RCA Records in January 2018, which Glover called “a necessary change of pace”. In May 2018, he released a single titled “This Is America” while performing dual hosting and musical duty on Saturday Night Live. The song debuted at number one, becoming both Glover’s first number one and top ten single in the United States. It features him both singing and rapping, drawing influence from trap music. Its lyrics addressed a variety of topics including gun violence in the United States and being black in the United States, while its provocative video, directed by Japanese filmmaker and frequent collaborator Hiro Murai, featured Glover performing a series of shootings before breaking into dance.
On July 11, 2018, Glover released the EP Summer Pack which contained the songs “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer”, the former of which is the lead single from Glover’s forthcoming fourth studio album. The music video for “Feels Like Summer” was released on September 1, 2018, and features cartoon cameos from numerous prominent rappers and R&B vocalists. The video is meant to symbolize Glover’s departure from the rap community and depicts his animated rendition as he walks down a neighborhood street, passing by several big names like Will Smith, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, and Michael Jackson.
In August 2018, it had been reported that Glover had been filming a secret project in Cuba titled Guava Island throughout that summer alongside Rihanna. The exact details of the project are currently unknown.
In September 2018, Glover made two previously unreleased songs, “Algorhythm” and “All Night”, exclusively available to fans who bought tickets to his upcoming This Is America Tour.
In an interview with The Guardian Glover stated, “I’m influenced by LCD Soundsystem as much as Ghostface Killah. A lot of the rap shows I saw as a kid were boring, but if you went to a Rage Against the Machine show or a Justice show, the kids were losing their minds. Kids just want to go nuts, Odd Future know that. People want to experience something physical.” Glover also cites hip hop duo Outkast and trio Migos, and funk band Funkadelic as being influences.
Glover has also influenced a number of younger musicians and actors alike. Rapper Vince Staples talks of Glover’s ability to constantly reinvent himself while actor and writer Naren Weiss cites his versatility as a source of inspiration.
Glover has a younger brother, writer/producer Stephen, who was also nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Atlanta.
In January 2017, Glover announced that he and his partner, Michelle, had a son in early 2016. In June, before performing “Baby Boy” in a tribute to his son, he revealed his name as Legend. In September, he announced that he and Michelle were expecting a second son, who was born in January 2018.
- tion for his work with Derrick Comedy while a student at New York University, he was hired at age 23 by Tina Fey as a writer for the NBC sitcom 30 Rock. He later portrayed community college student Troy Barnes on the NBC sitcom Community. He stars in the FX series Atlanta, which he created and occasionally directs. For his work on Atlanta, Glover won various accolades, including Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy. In film, Glover has appeared in Mystery Team (2009), The Lazarus Effect, Magic Mike XXL, The Martian (all 2015), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) as Aaron Davis, and as the young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018).

He later co-wrote and provided vocals for “Everything Has Changed”, a single featured on Swift’s fourth studio album, Red. Sheeran also contributed two songs to One Direction’s second studio album, Take Me Home, released in November 2012; the single “Little Things” became the group’s second number-one in the UK.

Elton John, who runs Sheeran’s management company, canvassed the award organisers to get Sheeran a performance slot at the ceremony but was told that Sheeran alone was not high-profile enough. John decided to appear with Sheeran to circumvent this problem. Sheeran was also featured on some tracks from Irish singer Foy Vance’s fourth album Joy of Nothing, in particular on Guiding Light which the British singer also often sang on stage.

On 24 March 2014, Sheeran performed at the Teenage Cancer Trust charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London where he unveiled “Take It Back”, a track that would appear on the deluxe version of the second album. “Sing”, the lead single, was released on 7 April 2014. Sonically, the song is a departure from Sheeran’s previous recordings. “Sing” was intended to create hype over the album release, but from concern that this might alienate Sheeran’s fan base, “One”, an acoustic ballad, was released on 16 May 2014; “One” also marked the first of several promotional singles released leading to the album release. By early June 2014, “Sing” had earned Sheeran his first number-one single in the UK.
Sheeran’s second studio album, x (pronounced “multiply”), was released worldwide on 23 June 2014.

On 17 January, “Shape of You” debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, while “Castle on the Hill” entered at number six; this made Sheeran the first artist ever to have two songs simultaneously debut in the US top 10.
On 26 January, Sheeran announced tour dates for the album ÷ in Europe, South America and North America from 17 March until 14 June 2017.Sheeran played to over 950,000 people in Australia and New Zealand in March and April 2018, making it the biggest concert tour in Australasian music history, overtaking the previous record set by Dire Straits in 1986.

By 11 March 2017 Sheeran had accumulated ten top 10 singles from ÷ on the UK Singles Chart, breaking Scottish DJ Calvin Harris’s record of nine top 10 singles from one album.

On 3 January 2018, “Shape of You” was named the best selling single of 2017 in the UK, and the best selling single of 2017 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. The same day, ÷ was named the best selling album of 2017 in the UK, and the US.

At the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on 20 May, Sheeran performed “Galway Girl” from Phoenix Park in Dublin, Ireland, and picked up six awards, including Top Artist and Top Hot 100 Artist.
Sheeran’s earliest memories include listening to the records of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Elton John’s Greatest Hits. According to Sheeran, the album that introduced him to music was Van Morrison’s Irish Heartbeat. During his childhood his father took him to live concerts that would inspire his musical creations. These included seeing Eric Clapton at the Royal Albert Hall, Paul McCartney in Birmingham, and Bob Dylan. On the influence of Clapton, Sheeran states, “He’s the reason I started playing guitar”. He singled out Clapton’s performance at the Party at the Palace in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, “I was eleven when I saw Eric Clapton play at the Queen’s Golden Jubilee concert in June 2002. I remember him walking on stage with this rainbow-coloured Stratocaster and playing the first riff of “Layla”. I was hooked. Two days later I bought a black Stratocaster copy for £30 that came with an amp. All I did for the next month was try to play that Layla riff.”
He has also cited The Beatles, Nizlopi and Eminem as his biggest musical influences. According to Sheeran, he had a stutter in his speech when he was younger, and he credited rapping along to Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP for helping him get rid of it. He was also inspired by “Cannonball” singer-songwriter Damien Rice in 2002, with Sheeran stating, “seeing him play this small club in Ireland, I was able to meet him, and he was unbelievably cool. I went straight home and started writing songs. I would not be doing what I’m doing now if he’d been a jerk.” He also told the Irish pop vocal band Westlife when he was younger, he used to learn how to play the guitar to the Westlife greatest hits album when he was ten, citing them as one of his influences. Sheeran collaborated with his idol Eric Clapton in April 2016, with Sheeran stating to People magazine, “I sang on Eric Clapton’s album [I Still Do]. It’s one thing having him on mine, but being his, that’s an honour that you can’t ever pinpoint on how great that is. I did something for his record, and I was credited as ‘Angelo Mysterioso,’ [appearing as a guest on Clapton’s “I Will Be There”, in addition to performing the song with Clapton on stage], and he did something for my record [performing a guitar solo on “Dive” on Sheeran’s album ÷] and was credited as ‘Angelo Mysterioso.'”
Gingerbread Man records
In March 2015, Sheeran revealed he was setting up a record label, Gingerbread Man Records, which is a deal with Warner Music Group. The label was launched in August 2015 alongside its accompanying YouTube channel. Jamie Lawson, the label’s first signee, met Sheeran while they were both in London’s folk circuit. Lawson released his self-titled debut album on 9 October 2015, which has earned him a number one in the UK Albums Chart. Sheeran signed his second artist, Foy Vance, in November 2015.
Sheeran performed a gig in Bristol, which raised £40,000 for a charity that reaches out to street sex workers. “It’s good to show insight that these people are real people with real emotions and they deserve the same charity work as anyone else,” Sheeran said. “There’s a lot more popular charities that get a lot of attention. And with certain subjects like this they’re often washed over and people don’t necessarily give them the attention they deserve.” Tickets were available to those taking part in the charity’s Give it up for One25 campaign by giving something up for 125 hours and hitting the £40,000 fundraising mark.
Sheeran frequently gives away his clothes to charity shops around Suffolk, his home county. An ambassador for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice, he has donated clothes to the St Elizabeth Hospice charity shop in his home town Framlingham, including eight bags of clothes to the shop in February 2014, and eight items of clothing he wore at the 2015 Grammy Awards. In 2016 he donated 13 bags of clothes to the shop.

Sheeran also appeared as himself in the 2016 film Bridget Jones’s Baby in a scene where Bridget Jones, played by Renée Zellweger, encounters the singer at the Glastonbury Festival where he is performing.
In July 2017, Sheeran appeared in a longer cameo on Game of Thrones in a scene together with actress Maisie Williams, who plays the character Arya Stark. David Benioffexplained that since Williams was a big fan of the singer, they wanted to have Sheeran appear on the show to surprise Williams, and that they had tried to get him on for years. It received a mix of positive and very critical reviews.
In early 2011, after securing recording and publishing deals, Sheeran purchased and renovated a farm near Framlingham, Suffolk, where he was raised. He has stated that he hopes to raise a family there. During 2013, he lived between Hendersonville, Tennessee and Los Angeles, California. In 2014, he bought a house in South London.
Sheeran was in a relationship with Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt (who was in his music video for “Drunk”) in 2012, before breaking up.Nesbitt is the subject of Sheeran’s songs “Nina” and “Photograph”, while most of Nesbitt’s album, Peroxide, is about Sheeran. In January 2014, Sheeran was in a relationship with Athina Andrelos, who works for chef Jamie Oliver. She is the inspiration of Sheeran’s song “Thinking Out Loud”. They broke up in February 2015. Since July 2015, Sheeran has been in a relationship with childhood friend and former high school classmate Cherry Seaborn. They announced their engagement in January 2018. In August 2018 he hinted that they married in a private ceremony. He is also close friends with singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, and collaborated on her albums Red and Reputation.
Sheeran is a supporter of his local football club Ipswich Town F.C.. A collector of Panini’s FIFA World Cup sticker album, he completed the 2014 World Cup album.
In June 2015, Forbes listed his earnings at $57 million for the previous 12 months, and ranked him the 27th-highest-earning celebrity in the world. On 19 October 2015, Sheeran received an honorary degree from the University of Suffolk in Ipswich for his “outstanding contribution to music”. Sheeran commented: “Suffolk is very much where I call home. Receiving this recognition is a real privilege.”
In a December 2017 interview with The Sunday Times’ “Culture” magazine, Sheeran spoke of his admiration for Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. “I love Corbyn. I love everything Corbyn is about. And I feel people thought that, because I didn’t put myself behind him, I wasn’t a Corbyn supporter. He cares about other people. He cares about all classes, races and generations, and that’s how I was brought up – we need more people that care about everyone.”
Awards and nominations
Sheeran was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2017 Birthday Honours for services to music and charity.
