Bio

BIOGRAPHY

bLUE began her music career in Atlanta, Georgia while attending art/music school. In 1998, bLUE moved to Memphis, Tennessee where she soaked up the sounds of Gospel and R&B legends Mahalia Jackson and Al Green, and the gritty sounds of dirty-south Hip Hop, which dominated the local music scene. In 1999, bLUE co-wrote and released her first album “Candy Box”. The album sold over 7,000 units and included a re-make of Al Green’s smash “Simply Beautiful”, which is still played on Memphis radio. In 2000, the Memphis NARAS Association nominated bLUE “Best Female Pop Vocalist” and “Candy Box” as "Best New Pop Album".

In September of 2000, after touring and promoting her album at military installations and clubs, bLUE shocked fans, friends and family when she enlisted in The United States Army with a plan to carry her music around the world. During her Basic Combat Training (BCT) at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, she had her producers send a few cases of her albums to her Commander’s office. Her drill instructors found out, but instead of disciplining her, they became fans and her commander ordered her to perform for fellow graduates and staff. Soon bLUE was assigned to Fort Drum, New York, where she quickly made a name for herself.

One morning after finishing physical training with her unit, she went to the local radio station and gave them a copy of an unreleased song. They immediately placed it in rotation, and two months later she was invited to host a special morning show in support of soldiers sent to fight after 9/11. During this period, bLUE was called upon to perform for soldiers in the U.S. and overseas. She also performed at the Statute of Liberty to uplift family members of 9/11 victims, and again at Shae Stadium in New York City for soldiers returning from Afghanistan.

After her tenure in the military, bLUE became an activist on behalf of herself and female veterans (see www.myspace.com/giroze

bLUE is currently self-promoting her new maxi-single in Atlanta, and has continuously been selling her CD compilation entitled “bLUE” on the street since February 2007. bLUE has also been performing with her band “bLUE6000”. The new yet untitled album is set to be released September 2008.

bLUE’s story is a living, breathing reality story in progress, right now, in real time, and this bio does not have adequate space to tell the complete bLUE story. HEAR THE MUSIC - FEEL HER STRUGGLE unfolding...
