The owner of a five-octave vocal range, R&B singer Debelah Morgan wrote her first song at the age of eight, soon after forming her own girl's choir and serving as their arranger. At 15, she was teaching gospel choir at the University of Arizona, that same year winning Miss Teen Black Arizona honors. Morgan then relocated to Los Angeles, taking home a silver medal in the NAACP international music competition. Pursued by a number of record companies, she eventually signed with Motown, issuing her debut album, It's Not Over, in 1998. Dance With Me followed two years later. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
