His album Calypso made him the first artist in history to sell more than one million LPs. He won a Tony award for his Broadway debut in “John Murray Anderson Almanac” and an Emmy for “An Evening with Belafonte,” in which he was also the first black producer in television.

"Mr. Belafonte was quite impressed with our students and what is taking place on our campus. He delivered a very inspiring message and we plan to stay in contact. Again, many sincere thanks to you and your staff for making our event a success."
"The event was fabulous. We had a crowd that was standing room only, with over 650 seated guests and 150 or more overflow. Mr. Belafonte was by turns gracious, erudite, humorous, and humble, taking his audience through that whole range of emotions during his talk. He has inspired us to deepen our reading and to toughen our moral fiber. Many thanks for helping us deal with the details of contract, communications and preferences in such a way that we all felt good about the results."
