Kelly Price biography (bio):
Price first made a name for herself as a prominent background and guest vocalist, appearing on a number of hit singles such as Mariah Carey's "Fantasy", The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Mo Money Mo Problems", and Whitney Houston's "Heartbreak Hotel". She has also sung background vocals for Faith Evans, Aretha Franklin, and Brian McKnight.
She issued her debut album, Soul of a Woman, in 1998 on Island Records, which contained the hit single "Friend of Mine". A popular "Friend of Mine" remix, also included on the album, features R. Kelly and Ronald Isley. Isley takes on the role of Price's uncle "Mr. Biggs", who takes Price's husband (played by R. Kelly) to task for cheating on Price with her best friend. The "Friend of Mine" Remix was a #1 hit on the US R&B charts.
Price became one of a number of popular full-figured R&B performers of the late-1990s, and received notable attention when she lost over 100 pounds to aid her health. She issued her second album, Mirror Mirror, in 2000 on the Def Soul imprint of Def Jam Records; Island and Def Jam had merged in 1999, with Price and labelmates Dru Hill being reassigned to Def Soul. Mirror Mirror featured the singles "You Should've Told Me" and the Grammy nominated "As We Lay", a cover of Shirley Murdock's 1983 hit. A remix of Mirror Mirror's "Love Sets You Free" was issued a single in 2000, produced by Teddy Riley and starring a number of fellow R&B performers, including Babyface, Tamar Braxton, Aaron Hall, Blackstreet, and Def Soul labelmates Dru Hill, Case, Montell Jordan, LovHer, and Kandice Love.
Price was featured in the 2003 film Bringing Down the House, performing a cover of the 1983 Rufus & Chaka Khan hit "Ain't Nobody."
A Christmas album, One Family, was issued in 2001. Two years later, Price returned with her third regular studio album, Priceless. In October 2005, Price recorded her first live gospel project. The This Is Who I Am album has been released on October 24, 2006 on her own label, EcclectiSounds Records, and peaked #9 on the R&B/Hip Hop album chart.
Price was inducted as an honorary member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. in July 2006.
As of early 2007 Price has kicked off a tour with the Sisters In The Spirit 2007. For information on dates from January 2007 - March 2007 see the following
