Monifah Carter, Harlem, New York, USA. This US singer enjoyed widespread acclaim in the late 90s with her soulful and intelligent brand of urban R&B. Carter was brought up surrounded by music in the Spanish Harlem district of New York City. A talented child, she landed her first role in an off-Broadway production of A Midsummer Nights Dream before studying at the La Guardia High School of Performing Arts. Following her graduation she began to sing for a living, touring around the world as a backing vocalist with reggae artist Maxi Priest. Acting on a recommendation from rapper Heavy D, New Yorks Uptown Records signed her as a solo artist. She enjoyed almost immediate success with the 1995 radio hit I Miss You (Come Back Home), which was featured on the New York Undercover soundtrack. The following years Moods Moments was produced by Heavy D with additional help from Trackmasterz and Vince Herbert.
