Biography

Heather Headley (born October 5, 1974) is a Trinidadian R&B and soul singer and actress. She has won a Tony Award and received two Grammy Award nominations.

After graduating from Northrop High School, Headley attended Northwestern University to study communications and musical theatre until the last day of her her junior year, when she made the difficult decision to become a part of the musical Ragtime and drop out of school.

In the autumn of 2006, Heather sang a rendition of "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", from the musical Promises, Promises. The song was written by Hal David & Burt Bacharach for the play by Neil Simon (1968). The occasion for her performance was "The Kennedy Center Presents: The 2006 Mark Twain Prize", honoring playwright Neil Simon, and was televised on PBS.

Headley released her debut album, This Is Who I Am, in October 2002 on RCA Records. Although its first single, "He Is", was not very successful, the second single, "I Wish I Wasn't", achieved moderate success. Headley earned her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and for Best New Artist.

Her second album, In My Mind, was delayed due to the various executive shake-ups associated with RCA parent BMG's merger with Sony. Headley joked that it should have been called Caught Up instead .

Under BMG North America chairman/CEO Clive Davis for the first time, Headley released her second album In My Mind in January 2006. The title track "In My Mind" ( produced by India.Arie collaborator Shannon Sanders ) was released as the first single; and its music video was directed by Diane Martel. The song reached number-one on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The second single "Me Time" was released to Urban AC outlets only. The third and final single is set to be "Am I Worth It", which will also serve to promote Headley's New March of Dimes Educational Campaign "I Want My 9 Months".

She also appears on The Lion King Original Broadway Cast Recording CD (released in 1997), most notably singing lead on the track "Shadowland", and on the recordings for Aida. She was called again to another project related to The Lion King; Headley performed the single version of the song "Love Will Find a Way" with Kenny Lattimore for the sequel The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride in 1998.

She has a brief appearance in the 2002 film Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights as a singer of the Rosa Negra. Also, she performs one of the movie's songs, "Represent Cuba".
