Ashanti

Ashanti became the first lady of former label Murder Inc. when she released her debut single "Foolish" and her triple platinum self-titled debut LP. But before R&B diva-dom or hitting the Broadway stage to play Dorothy in The Wiz, Ashanti, like Page-Lockhart, began her music journey singing gospel with her church choir.
