The best kept secret in music



WGCI-FM will present "Chicago Idol", it's version of "American Idol". The event was supported by Icee Records, which will reward a recording contract to the runner-up of the contest. The first place winner will receive an original R. Kelly song, which will be produced by Kelly. The first place winner is expected to go on a label supported by Kelly.

The response to the promotion has been "overwhelming" quoted Elroy Smith OP/PD WGCI-FM/AM. Smith says that the station received over 1,000 videotapes of prospective idols. The tapes that were received had only five to ten minutes of recording on them. The station will donate the tapes to a local high school.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Born and raised in G.I. (Gary, IN), LiL'BiT made her foray into the music industry in 1993, when she placed 3rd in a Black History song lyrics contest sponsored by Polygram Records. Later on, she would become a member of Self-Image, an R&B sextet that consisted of girls from both Gary and Chicago. The group met on the set of an R.Kelly video and lasted 7 years.

Throughout that time and beyond, LiL'BiT kept pushing the pen. Writing raw and uncensored lyrics helped the Communication major (IU) vent her frustration with the dangerous world outside her window, one that would claim over 30 of her schoolmates and 3 of her relatives. G.I., once known worldwide as the hometown of the legendary Jackson family, is now known for having some of the worst murder capita rates in the country (for nearly 10 years straight), not to mention the frequent placements on the FBI's Most Dangerous Cities lists and topping Money magazine's "Worst Cities to Raise Children" list.

Although some of her songs also speak about her time spent living homeless on the streets of Atlanta, it's not all about doom and gloom. For inspirational tunes, look no further than the self-penned "Stand By Me" and "The Possibilities" (originally written for R&B singer, Amerie). There's even a few club bangers, including the sultry "Don't Wanna Be", which she says was heavily inspired by the styles of both Minnie Riperton and Janet Jackson.

Now, with aspirations to be all that she can be in the world of entertainment, this lil' lady is eager to take her songs to the masses.

Armed with Chicago/Gary crowd favorites, "None of Yo Fuckin' Bizness" and "The Worst Thing I Ever Done Was The Best Thing I Ever Did", LiL'BiT has every intention of giving the people what they want.

She explains, "At first it was a little overwhelming for me. To see those audiences, especially females - young and old, showing me love and giving me standing ovations; feeling touched by these songs that were written straight from my heart. Those kinds of moments mean the world to me because it solidifies the belief that it's alright to be me. They identified with me. So it has become my mission to keep writing and singing about life issues that regular folks like me deal with on a daily. And, at the same time, build a massive, yet qualitative song catalog like all the greats that have inspired me."

Strongest Influences: Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Shanice, India.Arie, Reba McIntire, Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Anastacia, Gretchen Wilson
