Born Taalib Johnson, Musiq Soulchild has been celebrated as one of R&B's most beloved artists for nearly two decades. With 13 Grammy Award nominations, an American Music Award nomination, five BET Award nominations and a win, as well as an ASCAP Award, it's no surprise the singer has had two platinum-selling albums. Although his music has been released through five different record labels, his sound is still as relevant as it was when he first appeared on the music scene in 1999.
Musiq in the Streets
Growing up in Philadelphia, Penn., Musiq always had a love and gift for music. He was known throughout town for performing in both the local hip-hop clubs and jazz clubs and even for charming people on the city sidewalks by singing a capella for attention. While his name was largely unknown, people around Philadelphia began calling him "that music dude" and, honored by the reference, the artist began to refer to himself as Musiq. He later created the stage name "Musiq Soulchild" to represent himself as both "Musiq" the performer and "Soulchild" the creator. Pulling influence from musicians such as the late Marvin Gaye, the late Donny Hathaway and musical legend Stevie Wonder, it wasn't long before he was performing on sold-out stages instead of street corners.
