How long have daniel kelly and melinda shankar been dating
In 2012 she became a series regular in the BET series The Game, and released her sixth album Two Eleven to critical praise.In April 2015, Norwood made her Broadway debut in the musical Chicago.Norwood co-wrote and produced six songs on the album which yielded her first number-one song on the U. Billboard Hot 100, "The Boy Is Mine", a duet with singer Monica that has become the most successful song by a female duo in the music industry.Exploiting the media's presumption of a rivalry between the two young singers, the song was one of the most successful records in the United States of all time, spending a record-breaking thirteen weeks atop the Billboard charts, and eventually garnering the pair a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.Norwood was born on February 11, 1979, in Mc Comb, Mississippi, the daughter of Willie Norwood, a gospel singer and choir director, and his wife, Sonja Norwood (née Bates), a district manager for H&R Block.
Throughout the 2000s, Norwood held a precarious position in the pop industry.
She served as a judge on the first season of America's Got Talent before being involved in a widely publicized car accident in 2006.
After several lawsuits stemming from the accident, Norwood's fifth album, Human (2008), was released to commercial failure.
Critics rated the album highly, with All Music's Stephen Thomas Erlewine praising Norwood and her team for wisely finding "a middle ground between Mariah Carey and Mary J.
Blige—it's adult contemporary with a slight streetwise edge." The movie outperformed the original with a total of .5 million at its opening weekend, but critical reaction to the film was largely disappointing, with film review site Rotten Tomatoes calculating a poor rating of 7% based on 46 reviews.In 1993, amid ongoing negotiations with East West Records, Norwood's parents organized a recording contract with the Atlantic Recording Corporation after auditioning for the company's director of A&R Darryl Williams.
