Brandy Norwood

Brandy consistently heats it up as Atlantic Records' R&B/pop music sensation. She has sold over ten million albums worldwide. Her single The Boy is Mine, a duet with Monica, catapulted to the very top of the Billboard Hot 100 and became the top-selling international single in Atlantic Records' history. Best of all, it earned her a coveted Grammy Award. This summer, Brandy began her first-ever world tour, headlining concerts in Europe, North America and Asia. She was also invited to sing alongside pop icons Cher, Tina Turner and Whitney Houston on VH1 Divas Live '99.

Charismatic Brandy is also an impressive actress with her award-winning television series Moesha, now in its fifth season. She has also starred in the top rated movies Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella and Double Platinum, in which she co-starred with legendary recording artist Diana Ross. Brandy was a big screen attraction in the fall of 1998 as a co-star in the hit film, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.

Signed to the prestigious Wilhemena International modeling agency, Brandy is a featured spokesperson for Cover Girl and Candies. Next year Mattel will introduce a Brandy doll - Barbie's new celebrity friend, and she'll be featured in her own DC Comics book.

Brandy has garnered countless honors and awards, including a Grammy Award for her 1998 chart-topper, The Boy Is Mine. She has also received Grammy Award nominations for her first album and for her songs on the soundtracks for Waiting to Exhale and Set It Off, two Billboard Awards, an American Music Award, several NAACP Image Awards, Soul Train Lady of Soul awards, an MTV Movie Award for Best Song, and the Nickelodeon Award in the Favorite Singer category.

Although her performance and appearance schedule keeps her extremely busy, Brandy is committed to humanitarian efforts. With her brother Ray J, she has formed a non-profit organization, The Norwood Kids Foundation, dedicated to providing underprivileged youth enrichment through the performing arts.
