NOVEMBER 15, 7:30PM
CIARA, the 19-year-old beauty from Atlanta, is the latest multi-talented scene-stealer to nudge her way to center stage with attention-grabbing vocals, irresistible songwriting and killer dance moves. Ciara is only the second artist (the first was Usher with his hit single “Yeah”) to release a Crunk & B song. Says Lil’ Jon of the newly-formed genre, “Crunk & B songs are R&B songs that get you crunk. They make you wanna wild out. [‘Goodies’] is a female empowerment record; the female has the power. The female is in control on this song. This is one of those records for the ladies.” Ciara is as real as they come. Her Sho’ Nuff/LaFace/Zomba Label Group debut entitled Goodies is a heaping dose of real life issues conveyed through everyday language and extraordinary production and vocal delivery. The album is a complete work of art and a masterful mixture of messages for the young and not so young. Over the course of the past year, Ciara has been certified double platinum and nominated for Billboard, Vibe and Soul Train Awards. She was named “Entertainer of the Year” and winner of the “R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist” at the 2005 Soul Train Awards. It’s just the beginning for this young superstar.
