Born and Raised

Dana Elaine Owens was born in East Orange, New Jersey, to a schoolteacher mom and a police officer dad. She found her stage name, Latifah, meaning "delicate" and "very kind" in Arabic, in a muslim book of names at the age of 8. She caught the entertainment bug early, singing “Home” from the musical The Wiz in a high school play.
