Lalah Hathaway Tickets for Sale

Background- Lalah Hathaway is one of the most brilliant singer in the field of R&B and Jazz, who has imbibed her talents from the late soul legend Donny Hathway.

Lalah was born Eulaulah Hathaway in Chicago, Illinois. She was raised in family, that has always been into music and being the daughter of Donny, it certainly had impact in her life as well as her younger sister Kenya. "We were always involved in the arts," she remembers, "singing and taking piano lessons. It was part of our everyday life. At different points I wanted to be a painter, a magician and a comedian. I've never had any aspirations to do any civilian thing." She continues "When I was 16 years old, I had Janet Jackson's Control record and that's the direction I initially wanted to go in. I would watch Solid Gold every week. If I couldn't make the music that made it on that show, well then, I was going to be a dancer! There was so much for me to look at and be inspired by. I'm really thankful for that now. To me, to be a star and a musician can be synonymous."

She attended Performing Arts High School at Chicago. She then went on to study at the famous Berklee School of Music in Boston. Soon she found herself signing up with Virgin Records. She released her self titled debut Lalah Hathaway in the year 1990. It was a great hit and spawned several R&B hits, which includes "It's Something", "Baby Don't Cry", and "Heaven Knows". "Heaven Knows" became the smash hit at the Billboard Top 5 R&B.

In the year 1994 she released "A Moment" and Brian Alexander Morgan (of SWV fame) was the producer of the album who also helped her in her upbeat single "Let Me Love You". The singles of the album were "Separate Ways" and "Family Affair". The album was a minor hit. Eventually, Hathaway left Virgin.
