Jamelia is one of Britain’s most successful black female entertainers. Her career has spanned over ten years after being signed straight out of school at 15 to one of the biggest major record companies in the world.
In 2004, she had three top 5 hits from her last album “Thank You” – the seminal “Superstar” (no 3), “Thank You” ( no 2) and her co-write with Chris Martin, “See It In A Boy’s Eyes”, which reached No 5. Incredibly, Jamelia then stormed the top 10 again with “Stop”, her theme for the second Bridget Jones film.
At this point she was unstoppable, one of the most successful solo artists in the country. Her UK success was emulated in Europe where she was a continual serious chart presence, and in Australia and New Zealand where she reached No 1.
This triumphant period in Jamelia’s career also saw her sweep the board at the MOBO awards, where she won all of her three nominated awards, including “Best UK Act”. A week later no less a figure than Bono was genuflecting to her at the Q awards, where she won “Best Single” for ‘See It In A Boy’s Eyes’. Coupled with words of high praise at the same event from Elton John, you could have been forgiven for thinking things couldn’t get much better. But a week later Jamelia was signed by the prestigious modelling agency ICM and swiftly got her first contract as the face/legs of Pretty Polly and also a high profile contract with Reebok.
More recently Jamelia has earned the coveted role of appearing along side two of the world biggest supermodels fronting her own ethnic haircare range ‘Model Me’ stocked nationwide in Boots stores – and will this year be launching her autobiography following her turbulent childhood, abuse relationships and family controversy, which in spite of has led to her rise to fame.
Creatively Jamelia has been focussing on developing her acting skills and is choosing her next role carefully in advance of her debut performance and is currently in the studio this time developing her writing and production skills in the hope to give unknown artists the benefit of her experience.
