    Tony and Grammy Award Winner Heather Headley considers her multi-faceted career a blessing. She was born and spent most of her childhood on the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad. The daughter of a pastor, she started singing and playing the piano in the church at a very young age. The family moved to the United States in the early 90’s where Heather’s love for the arts continued.
     
    In 1997, Heather, a Northwestern University alum, won the role of Nala in the original Broadway cast of the Elton John and Tim Rice’s hit Tony winning musical The Lion King. While still in The Lion King, Heather was asked to audition for the title role in the writing duo’s next Broadway venture together, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida. Her portrayal of the Nubian princess, Aida, won her the praise of critics and the prestigious Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. In addition to other awards, she also received the coveted Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. That year she was listed as one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People and Essence Magazine’s 30 Women To Watch. Heather continued her Broadway success on the pop charts with her 2002 debut album on RCA Records, This Is Who I Am which featured productions by several top-flight producers including Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Shep Crawford. Two songs, the single “He Is” and the album track “I Wish I Wasn’t,” both emerged as Top 5 R&B and Dance chart hits.
     
    Heather earned numerous accolades for This Is Who I Am, including Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. At the Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards she won dual honors: R&B/Soul Album of the Year and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist. She also received nominations at the NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding New Artist and Outstanding Female Artist, and BET Awards in the “Cool Like That” category.
     
    In January 2006, Ms. Headley returned with In My Mind, her long-awaited second solo album, once again working with an A-list of producers, among them Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Ne-Yo, Warryn Campbell, and Lil’ Jon. The title track became Heather’s first #1 hit, topping the Dance charts.
     
    Heather took her first foray into the gospel music world in 2009 with the release of her third studio album Audience Of One, for which she was awarded the Grammy Award for the Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album. In 2012, she released her fourth studio album, Only One In The World.

    Heather has also displayed her versatility as one of classical star Andrea Bocelli’s favorite singing partners. She has been featured in many of his American and international tours, his “Live In Tuscany” PBS special, and his “Under The Desert Sky” live concert DVD.

    The mens fake hublot are of no use to me but I could give away as gifts or happy to post back these rolex replica sale to you but due to this being your mistake the return replica watches uk would have to be paid by you. Will you be refunding the cost for me to return the rolex replica sale to you. Can you please e mail me the replica watches you will be refunding so I have something as proof that this is our agreement. It will be far easier to refund me the cost of the replica watches including the cost to ship this rolex replica watches uk back to you, before I send it back. I think rolex replica sale is a more than fair request as you have had my money for weeks now, leaving me with a product I never ordered or do not wish to keep. I will ship the rolex replica the day I get my refund including the cost to ship it back to you.
