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 Night’s 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 York’s 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 year’s Moods… Moments was produced by Heavy D with additional help from Trackmasterz and Vince Herbert.
