«Music is so textured and layered,» she says, «and it is an absolute entity in my life. It's three-dimensional, it's tangible, and when I die, I'll say goodbye to it, just as I will to everyone standing around my bed.»
Born to Donny Hathaway, one of the most influential soul artists of the eighties, and Eulaulah Hathaway, an accomplished musician in her own right. The Chicago native first put pen to paper, «with the music,» as a 10th grader. Later, as a student at Berklee College of Music, she recorded her self-titled debut in 1990, which spawned the hits «Baby Don't Cry,» «Heaven Only Knows» and «I'm Coming Back.» She returned four years later with A Moment, followed by the much-lauded The Song Lives On, her duet album with Joe Sample in 1999. The same year she began growing her now-signature, cinnamon-hued ‘locs. By 2004, she delivered her fourth album, Outrun the Sky, gathering Hathaway her first number one single. Rex Rideout-produced the cover of Luther Vandross' Forever, For Always, For Love, which was also featured on the critically-acclaimed Vandross tribute album of the same name.
