ABOUT THE ARTIST:
"Heather Headley is among the top singers with a vocal that absolutely astounds with its intensity... This woman is one of the great entertainers of the day, on record and on stage (Billboard Magazine)."
Tony and Grammy Award Winner Heather Headley considers her multi-faceted career a blessing. She was born and spent most of her childhood on the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad. The family moved to the United States in the early 90's where Heather's love for the arts continued.
In 1997, Tony and Grammy Award Winner Heather Headley won the role of Nala in the original Broadway cast of the Elton John and Tim Rice's hit Tony winning musical The Lion King. While still in The Lion King, Heather was asked to audition for the title role in the writing duo's next Broadway venture together, Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida. Her portrayal of the Nubian princess, Aida, won her the praise of critics and the prestigious Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. In addition to other awards, she also received the coveted Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. That year she was listed as one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People and Essence Magazine's 30 Women To Watch.
Heather continued her musical success on the pop charts with her 2002 debut album on RCA Records, This Is Who I Am which featured productions by several top-flight producers. Two songs, "He Is" and the album track "I Wish I Wasn't," both emerged as Top 5 R&B and Dance chart hits. Heather earned numerous accolades for This Is Who I Am, including Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Heather returned in January 2006 with In My Mind, her long-awaited second solo album. The opening title tune single became Heather's first #1 hit, topping the Dance and R&B charts.
In 2009 Heather released Audience of One for which she won the Grammy Award for the Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album. She has performed on numerous daytime and late night shows, including The View, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Late show with David Letterman. In 2018 Heather had a recurring role on "Chicago Med" as Gwen Garrett. She was the spokesperson for the March of Dimes and led their "I Want My 9 Months" campaign, and also serves on the board of Directors for the Catalyst Charter Schools in Chicago.
In 2016 Heather made a triumphant return to Broadway playing Shug Avery in "The Color Purple".
