Singer, songwriter Ciara
birth name: Ciara Princess Harris


October 25, 1985, Austin, TX

Dubbed “the First Lady of Crunk & B” by the producer who should know, Lil' Jon, singer Ciara burst onto the scene with the never-gonna-get-it single ‘Goodies,’ the breathy “answer song” to Petey Pablo's ‘Freek-a-Leek.’ […] With Sean Garrett, the co-writer of Usher's massive hit ‘Yeah!,’ Ciara co-wrote ‘Goodies,’ and when Lil Jon heard the demo, he knew it was going to be big. ~ Allmusic: Ciara ~ retrieved October 20, 2013 © Allmusic

In her mid-teens, Ciara formed the all girl group Hearsay with two of her friends. The group recorded demos, but as time went on, they began to have differences and eventually parted ways. Despite this setback, Ciara was still determined to reach her goal and signed a publishing deal as a songwriter. Her first success was the song, ‘Got Me Waiting’ for R&B singer Fantasia's debut album, Free Yourself. It was when she was writing songs that she met music producer Jazze Pha, whom she called her “music soulmate.” In 2002, the two recorded four demos, ‘1, 2 Step,’ ‘Thug Style,’ ‘Pick Up the Phone,’ and ‘Lookin' at You,’ which all appeared on her debut album, which was released two years later. The former was the second single released from it and became a hit. After graduating from Riverdale High School in Riverdale, Georgia in 2003, she was signed by LaFace Records executive L.A. Reid, whom she was introduced to by Jazze Pha. She began production on her debut album later that year. In early 2004, Ciara wrote a demo with record producer Sean Garrett. The demo was later brought to the attention of Lil' Jon and became her debut single ‘Goodies.’ ~ Wikipedia: Ciara ~ retrieved October 31, 2013 © Wikipedia
