Raheem DeVaughn the New Jersey-born, Maryland-raised, D.C. known singer had an epiphany early in his college career at Coppin State University, when he saw a group of street corner singers and began harmonizing with them. It turned his life focus to that of becoming a professional singer, and he attained relatively quick success, winning local awards and successfully releasing some independent work in the D.C. area over the next few years. He ultimately gained the attention of veteran producers DJ Jazzy Jeff (as Rahiem) and Kenny Burns (known as former A&R for Roc-A-Fella Records) and signed a recording contract with Jive Records in 2002.
DeVaughn's first solo single released on a major label was the song entitled "You". With it's airy vocals and smooth sound, "You" brought more attention to Raheem as well as his cultivated sense of creativity. DeVaughn's first Jive Records release, "The Love Experience", was acclaimed and boasted some of the soulful and exquisitely deep lyrics those labeled "neo-soul" are renowned for.
