Dawn Richard Continues To Take Risks
So many times we have seen individual members of music groups and bands branch out as a solo artist only to find out there is power in numbers. And then there is the exception, as with former Danity Kane and P. Diddy's Dirty Money member Dawn Richard.
With her stellar independent debut release "GoldenHeart" (January 2013), Richard is taking the music world by storm with this 16-track packed project that contains part one of a three-part diary of what the singer/songwriter says tells the first stage of her three-part life.
A lyrically strong writer, Dawn sets to music a story of being a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed artist that is most times naïve to what is ahead for them. Her story which many will be able to relate to will become complete with the release of two planned subsequent albums entitled "BlackHeart" and "RedemptionHeart," respectively.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
