Biography


With her fifth single "I'd Like To" coming to the U.K stores on February, 12, 2007 alongside the re-released edition of her self-titled album, all looks to run rather smooth indeed for Corinne Bailey Rae, especially when taking a peek on what she is set to do next for months ahead. For the rest of February only, she has already had a slot to share stage at the 49th annual Grammy Awards with John Mayer and John Legend on date 11 while being attached to perform live in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain by the late of the month. The shows delightfully will continue in March with stops in other European countries such as Italy, German, Swiss, and France before she returns to her homeland to greet fans in cities like Manchester, London, and Newcastle starting from date 13.

An undeniably perfect choice for those seeking for a respite from hip-hop and angst rock-filled radio, Corinne Bailey Rae was born to a West Indian father and an English mother as the eldest of their three daughters on February 26, 1979 in Leeds, Yorkshire, England. Ever since she was a child, music has become an inseparable part of her life that it was no surprise that the girl later opted to study classical violin at school while participating in her Baptist church choir. “It was always my favourite part of the service, the singing,” she recalled.
