BIOGRAPHY OF ERYKAH BADU

Actress, she is one of the finest interpreters of soul-inspired music. Growing up with her mother Kolleen, an established theater actress, at the age of four she already walked the stages of the Dallas Theater Center with her. After high school, she began studying theater at Louisiana’s Grambling State University, but in 1993 she decided to devote herself to music instead. To underline the African origins she is proud of, she changes her original name (which she considers a ‘slave’ name) to Erykah Badu. Before making a splash as a singer, for a living she adapts to being a waitress in restaurants and teaches children dance. Her career took off thanks to the meeting with producer Kedar Massenberg, who had the opportunity to listen to a duo she recorded with her cousin Robert “Free” Bradford, and who first allowed her to perform live at the opening of a concert, and then he signed her to his new record company, Kedar Entertainment. Badu’s first album, “Baduizm”, composed of songs almost all written by herself, was released at the beginning of ’97 and immediately climbed all the charts. Badu is even compared to Billie Holiday, a comparison that flatters her, although she claims that any similarity is not intentional. The lightning popularity gained, the ability to make his debut in the cinema interpreting the role of the jazz diva Queen Moussette in “Blues Brothers 2000”. In 1999 she appeared in “The Cider House Rules”.
