Brandy is an American singer, actress, television producer and television personality. As a singer, she has won numerous awards and it is estimated that she has sold over 30 million records worldwide. As an actress, Brandy has appeared in 2 TV movies Double Platinum and Cinderella. Cinderella remains one of the highest rated television movies in ABC history and was the first time a minority actress was depicted as Cinderella in a major film. She also co-starred in I Still Know What You did Last Summer which grossed over $80 million at the box office. She was the star and producer of the sitcom "Moesha", which remained in the Top 10 of the most watched television shows in Black households throughout most of its 5-year run.
A changing musical climate and several personal crises briefly curtailed her career. She continued to release music and although none of them lived up to the sales of her first 2 albums, she continued to receive critical acclaim and has been cited as an influence by such artists as Rihanna and Jazmine Sullivan.
She has appeared on Dancing With The Stars, starred in her own VH1 reality show and landed a recurring role in the popular Negro television series "The Game".
Brandy remains one of the few entertainers in history to have simultaneous success in film, television and music.
Brandy's sensibility towards vocal styling and vocal melodies has attracted a small, but loyal, following of waxy-faced church queens. Unlike other female artists, however, Brandy's fanbase doesn't have an official name. According to sources, they've narrowed their choices down to "The B-Rockas" and "The Speed Bumps".
