"lalah hathaway"

The lovely jazz and R&B songstress Lalah Hathaway definitely didn’t let her genetic gifts go to waste. As the daughter of the iconic soul singer Donny Hathaway, there’s a lot of attention and pressure of Lalah to live up to the hype, which she does in her own unique and sophisticated way.

The Berklee College of Music grad has been expressing her musical talents since 10th grade and has continued to grace the industry with her soulful presence for over 20 years. Check out some things you may not have known about the singer.

My greatest love lesson is…. that it makes you a greater person to love. You can never ‘give it all away’- it always comes back to you.

My best trait is… my humor

My worst trait is…. not knowing what my bad traits are? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ….. and being a procrastinator

My favorite three albums of all time are…..three is hard…extension of a man- Donny hathaway, where it all begins- lalah hathaway…and whatever my next record is!

If I could live anywhere in the world…. I am thinking about it now! I like Atlanta, and I like Colorado….I really miss Chicago (my hometown)…

My happiest time was….. so far, college. I really did about 14 years of growth in that short 4 years.. I really found my voice during that stretch of my life- singing and otherwise.

If I could only wear one designer’s clothes for the rest of my life, it would be…… today I would say Queen Grace!

My biggest regret is….. that there will never be enough time.

Inspiration comes from…. everywhere! the trash truck, kids in the yard, rain, a great plate of food…it’s the never ending source from God that sheds light on every single thing…

Bonus Info:

On the top of my list of qualities for a man is… Humor. I better be laughing more often than not….and humor combined with intelligence is ultimate.
