Brandy

We’ve seen her grow up. And now we’re excited to see this multi-talented accomplished artist hit the dance floor. We just hope she doesn’t try to dance in her Cinderella glass slippers.

Brandy is a platinum-selling R&B and pop singer, actress, songwriter, and record/television producer. In 1994, at the age of fifteen, Brandy released her eponymous debut album selling over 6 million copies. Following a major success with “The Boy Is Mine,” a duet with singer Monica which spent 13 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, she won a Grammy® Award for Best R&B performance by a duo or group. The accompanying album Never Say Never in 1998 sold over 16 million copies worldwide. A series of hit CD's followed, including Full Moon, Afrodisiac and Human bringing the star’s sales over 30 million records to date.
 
While maintaining a recording career, Brandy also gained fame as an actress, starring in several film and TV projects including the popular UPN sitcom, Moesha (1996-2001), the 1997 version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Double Platinum, a miniseries co-starring Diana Ross, and the movie I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. Brandy has also been spokesmodel for Cover Girl, Candies Shoes, DKNY, Sketchers Shoes and Ultima/Kaneka brand by Brandy.
 
Her civic and charity interests include the Make-A-Wish Foundation and The Norwood Kids Foundation which supports music and the performing arts in public schools. She is currently filming season 2 of the hit VH1 reality show Brandy and Ray J: a Family Business which she stars in and is Executive Producer. She is also in studio recording a new CD for release in 2011.

To Brandy, I pray that God will be with you and protect you from all harm and danger as you go all the way. Far as last year that could have just gave the pussycat girl the mirror because she had much more experience than all of the other and it should not have again or no one would me watching at least I won't. May God Bless You All With His Love & Mines LOVE YOU BRANDY Carlitha(Earth Angel)

I think it's a very interesting mix of celebrities. I look forward to getting to know these people. Who's going to be the surprisingly likeable one? Who's going to be the good dancers? I have no idea. I'm not assuming that Brandy is going to run away with this. I'm very curious to see what the pairings are going to be. I've learned from past years not to pre-judge the cast of celebs. I remember being disappointed with a cast when it was first announced, but then enjoying the season quite a bit. In the end it doesn't matter at all if the celeb is a big star. That's not what makes the show interesting. It's seeing how they react to the pressure and to the physical demands of the show. How gracious are they in defeat and victory. I usually end up liking these people a lot more than I thought I would. Bring it on!

The ones complaining about "Hip-Hop stars or singers having an advantage try watching a BET, MTV or VH-1 video and let us know if you see any of the Singers doing the Cha-Cha, Fox-Trot, Salsa, Lindy Hop, etc, etc etc.

I was totally disgusted with last years season due to the fact that it became the Nicole Scherzinger Show. It was so ridiculously obvious she has already had extensive dance training and ruined the true hard work that the other untrained contestants did. It looks as though the idiots at the wheel in DWTS has done it again by putting Brandy up against these other celebs who have no real dance training. If this becomes the Brandy Show right off the bat like it did with Nicole I will not stick with DWTS for the season and will never watch it again.

I really don't think that people in the music biz shouldn't be picked. I was thinking that maybe Bobby Flay, Alton Brown, Mike Holmes, Ben Bailey but I couldn't find any where on line to submit my picks.

Brand I think is a good choice. She's been in music and movies for a while. She's well known. It will be interesting to see how she does at ballroom dancing.

Brandy is a had been. Besides her reality TV show her and her family have that like no one watches. This is just a way for her to try and regain fans. I hear she is a wanna be rapper now. Nice a ballroom dancing rapper should be fun to watch. Umm definitely not watching this season.

Super excited about Kurt Warner, Brandy, Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey, and Florence Henderson. I've never been a huge Michael Bolton fan but excited to see the work he does with charities to help fight violence against women and that will probably have an effect on how I vote. Although I love Sarah Palin, I'm not so sure how I feel about Bristol Palin being invited to be a part of this line up, I mean, when did she become a "star"? I'm not very excited about David Hasselhoff or Margaret Cho but I guess every season needs their underdogs and the rest of the cast I could take or leave. I always enjoy watching the show and can't wait for the new season.

I am ready for another season... can't wait to see how everyone does!!! Hope that Brandy, Rick, and Kyle do exceptionally well....DWTS is starting to look like American Idol....downsizing on the African American contestants. Good Luck to the contestants.
