Erica "Erykah" Abi Wright (born February 26, 1971),[1] better known as Erykah Badu (/ˈɛrɪkə bɑːˈd/), is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, disc jockey, activist, and actress.

Badu's career began after opening a show for D'Angelo in 1994 in Fort Worth; record label executive Kedar Massenburg was highly impressed with her performance and signed her to Kedar Entertainment.[1] Her first album, Baduizm, was released on February 11, 1997.[2] It spawned three singles: "On & On", "Next Lifetime" and "Otherside of the Game". The album was certified triple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[3] Badu's first live album, Live, was released on November 18, 1997 and was certified double Platinum by the RIAA.[3] Badu is hailed as the queen of neo soul.

Badu's second studio album, Mama's Gun, was released on October 31, 2000.[4] It spawned three singles: "Bag Lady", which became her first top 10 single on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at #6, "Didn't Cha Know?" and "Cleva". The album was certified Platinum by the RIAA.[3] Badu's third album, Worldwide Underground, was released on September 16, 2003.[5] It generated three singles: "Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip-Hop)", "Danger" and "Back in the Day (Puff)" with 'Love' becoming her second song to reach the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #9. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA.[3] Badu's fourth album, New Amerykah Part One, was released on February 26, 2008.[6] It spawned two singles: "Honey" and "Soldier". New Amerykah Part Two was released in 2010 and fared well both critically and commercially. It contained the album's lead single "Window Seat", which led to controversy.

Influenced by R&B, 1970s soul, and 1980s hip hop,[1] Badu became associated with the neo soul subgenre in the 1990s along with artists like D'Angelo.[7] Her work has often been compared[8] to jazz great Billie Holiday.[9][10] Early in her career, Badu was recognizable for her eccentric style, which often included wearing very large and colorful headwraps. She was a core member of the Soulquarians. As an actress, she has played a wide range of supporting roles in movies including Blues Brothers 2000, The Cider House Rules and House of D. She also speaks at length in the documentaries Before the Music Dies and The Black Power Mixtapes.

Legend Award

Toni Michelle Braxton (born October 7, 1967)[3][4] is an American singer, songwriter, pianist, record producer, actress, television personality, and philanthropist. She rose to fame in the early 1990s as a popular R&B singer.

Her self-titled debut studio album was released in 1993. It sold over 10 million copies worldwide, spawning such hits as "Another Sad Love Song" and "Breathe Again" and earning Braxton three Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist. Released in 1996, her second album, Secrets, continued her acclaim and mega success, selling over 15 million copies globally. The album spawned the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits "You're Makin' Me High" and "Un-Break My Heart", the latter of which became her signature song and the second top-selling single of all time by a female artist. Braxton won two Grammy Awards for Secrets.

In 2000, her third album, The Heat, was released. It sold over 4 million copies and included the hit single "He Wasn't Man Enough", for which Braxton won a Grammy Award. She then released three more studio albums – More Than a Woman (2002), Libra (2005) and Pulse (2010), experiencing personal and label conflicts in between these releases. In 2014, Braxton and long-time collaborator Babyface released a duet album entitled Love, Marriage & Divorce, which earned the duo a Grammy Award in early 2015.

Throughout her career, Braxton has sold over 67 million records, including 41 million albums, worldwide.[citation needed] She has won seven Grammy Awards, nine Billboard Music Awards, seven American Music Awards and several other awards. Aside from her success in music, Braxton has become a television executive producer and personality, being involved in the 7th season of the reality show Dancing with the Stars and in a reality series entitled Braxton Family Values, where Braxton is Executive Producer and star since 2011 on We TV. Braxton is also an Executive Producer of the spin-off show, starring her younger sister, Tamar, the Tamar & Vince on WE tv. On September 18, 2011, Braxton was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
