Brandy was born in McComb, Mississippi on February 11, 1979. She started singing at Brookhaven church of Christ in Brookhaven, Mississippi at an early age of two and when she was 11, she began working as a backing vocalist for boybands Norment and Immature. Wanting to record her own album, she then sought a record deal with major label but didn't get any until she attended a party held by Atlantic Recording Corporation. After performing in front of the guests, she was then offered a recording contract by the company's executive, Darryl Williams.
Brandy's first record is a self-titled album released in 1994. Working with producers Keith Crouch and Darryl Williams, the album features such hit singles as "I Wanna Be Down", "Single", "Baby", and "Brokenhearted". Since making its way out in September, the effort peaked at number 6 on Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and landed at number 20 on Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart. Also, the album earned her two Grammy Award nominations for "Best New Artist" and "Best Female R&B Vocal Performance" which unfortunately she lost them all.
