Jazmine Sullivan Background
Sullivan grew up in Philadelphia and developed a love for music from an early age. Her mom was a backup singer and inspired her daughter to pursue a career in music. Most of Sullivan's early singing experience came from singing in church choirs. First she was a member of her church's youth choir, then moved up to the adult choir. Sullivan cited her time singing in choirs as a big influence on her singing and her musical career. When she was 11-years-old, Sullivan performed a hymn, "Accept What God Allows", on the music television show, It's Showtime at the Apollo, which received very positive reviews from the crowd.
At the age of 15, she signed her first record deal with Jive Records. Her time at Jive didn't last long, but Sullivan made several important contacts which would play a role in her career later on. At Jive Records, she befriended Missy Elliott who later would produce Sullivan's debut album and write some of the songs on the album. Before releasing her debut album, Sullivan worked as a background singer and also wrote a few songs for other artists that went on to become hits. After years of work, Sullivan released her debut album in 2008.
In her career, Sullivan has released three albums and has had one No. 1 hit. Sullivan's only No. 1 hit was her debut single off of the 2008 album, Fearless. The single, "Need U Bad", features Missy Elliott and has a strong reggae influence, was a hit on the radio and with critics. Simon Vozick-Levinson on Entertainment Weekly, called the song "one of the catchiest tunes getting airplay at the moment." He went on to compare Sullivan to r&b legend Lauryn Hill.
While "Need U Bad", is Sullivan's only No. 1 hit, she has had several singles do well on the charts. The second single off of Fearless, "Bust Your Windows", hit No. 4 on the US R&B charts and cracked the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2010, her single "Holding You Down (Goin' in Circles)", hit No. 3 on the US R&B chart. Sullivan's most recent single "Forever Don't Last", climbed to No. 10 on the Adult R&B charts and has received a lot of airplay. In addition to the success of her singles, Sullivan has also worked with several big-name artists, including Snoop Dog, Robin Thicke, Wale and Eminem.
Sullivan was offered her first record deal when she was 11-years-old. But she turned the offer down, because she didn't feel that she was ready to take that step yet.
Over the course of her career, Sullivan has wow'd fans and critics with her strong live performances. She has a naturally rich voice which lends itself perfectly to the live stage. Critics have noted her stage presence and the way she can captivate an audience and take control of an area as one of the best things about seeing her live. Sullivan is sure to entertain fans and make it a memorable night for the audience.
