Roberta Flack Background
Roberta Flack came from a very musical family, and was always encouraged
to pursue her love of music. She was raised in Arlington, Virginia, and it was here that she discovered the phenomenal work
of African American artists like Sam Cooke and Mahalia Jackson, among others that became some of her first musical inspirations.
By the time Flack was nine years old, she was already learning how to play the piano, and she became so skilled at this classical
instrument that she was awarded a full music scholarship at Howard University when she was just 15 years old. So before Flack
was even 16, she was already attending college, making her one of the youngest students in the university's history.
her time at Howard University, Flack decided to focus on honing her singing skills instead of studying piano, so she switched
her major to voice and became very involved in the university's choir. After receiving such an incredible education in music,
Flack decided to become a music teacher herself, and she taught at schools in North Carolina and Washington DC for several
years after graduating. While in Washington DC, Flack spent many of her nights performing at local clubs and music venues,
and it was here that her phenomenal talent was discovered.
After Les McCann discovered Flack performing at a nightclub
in Washington one night, her life was forever changed. Soon after, she signed with Atlantic Records and released her first
record, First Take. And almost overnight, Roberta Flack was a huge sensation. Her sultry and hypnotizing soul tunes scored
spots on music charts and earned her high critical praise. She accumulated several Grammy Awards, multi-platinum albums, and
number one spots on U.S. music charts. Roberta Flack went from being a junior high music teacher to one of the most talked
