2006 , SOUL

Initially I was going to wait and post this next year since I had missed her birthday already but in the hope of avoiding the Teddy P thing I decided why not post it now.

Now here are some useless facts about Roberta Flack. Flack began recording regularly with Donny Hathaway, scoring hits such as the Grammy-winning Where Is the Love (1971) and later The Closer I Get to You (1978) - both million-selling Gold singles. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face was awarded both Record of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female at the 1973 Grammy Awards. It's parent album was Flack's biggest-selling disc, eventually earning Double Platinum certification. On her own, Flack scored her second #1 hit, Killing Me Softly with His Song written by Lori Lieberman in 1973. Killing Me Softly with His Song won Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards of 1974. Roberta Flack and U2 are the only artists to win Record of the Year in back-to-back years.

During her early teens, Flack so excelled at classical piano that Howard University awarded her a full music scholarship. She matriculated at Howard University at the age of 15, making her one of the youngest students ever to enroll there. She eventually changed her major from piano to voice, and became an assistant conductor of the university choir. Her direction of a production of Aida received a standing ovation from the Howard University faculty.

In 1986, Flack sang the theme song entitled Together Through the Years for the NBC television series, Valerie later known as The Hogan Family. Flack is a member of Delta Sigma Theta sorority and was made an honorary member of Tau Beta Sigma in 2009 for her outstanding work in promoting music education. Enjoy!
