Top singer of the month – Rihanna


Welcome to another monthly segment of our popular singer bio, and today we’ll write about the history of one of the most famous R&B singers of the past few years – Rihanna!

Rihanna (born Robyn Rihanna Fenty in 1988 in Barbados) is a female Raggamuffin, dancehall, and R&B singer.

Rihanna was born to a Black-Caribbean father and White-American mother. Rihanna has said that she has Latino roots but did not specify which side it was on. Being Bi-racial has never been negative aspect for Rihanna because her parents have always taught her to embrace every part of her heritage.
Besides ripping traditional reggae tracks like a seasoned dancehall queen, the stunning Rihanna possesses a powerful singing voice that conjures up feelings and experiences way beyond her years.

Growing up in the parish of St. Michael, Barbados, it never occurred to Rihanna that one day she would be sitting in the company of mega music moguls. Before moving to the US in 2005, Rihanna lived somewhat of a simple life on her home island where she attended high school and like most teenage girls sang songs for fun with her friends. Aside from winning her school’s beauty and talent pageant, Rihanna never realized how talented she really was until she attracted the attention of a New York City music producer named Evan Rogers. (Evan and his partner, Carl Sturken, have produced hits for such artists as Christina Aguilera, Ruben Studdard and Kelly Clarkson.) Evan and his Barbadian wife Jackie were vacationing over Christmas near Rihanna’s hometown and through a mutual friend were introduced to the young diva. After hearing her belt out a couple of tunes Evan realized Rihanna’s future star power and invited her to New York to record some tracks.
