The daughter of a gospel singer, Brandy fell in love with music from an early age after hearing Whitney Houston, who would eventually become a godmother to her. By age 11, her family had moved from Mississippi to California where she was consistently auditioning for talent shows. By 1993, Brandy was signed to Atlantic Records and was recording her debut self-titled album which received critical acclaim when it dropped in 1994.
In 1996 she landed the lead role in the sitcom Moesha and from there, her career skyrocketed. By 1997, Houston had hand-picked her to portray Cinderella in the ABC TV special. Cinderella garnered an estimated 60 million viewers, giving the network its highest ratings in the time period in 16 years.
Brandy would go on to top the charts with her second album, Never Say Never, star in I Still Know what You Did Last Summer, and much more. More recently she’s starred in the Broadway musical Chicago and at present, she’s starring in ABC’s Queens. Since her 1994 debut album, Brandy has sold more than 40 million records worldwide.
