Erykah Badu was born on February 26, 1971 to William and Kollen Wright in Dallas, Texas. They named her Erica Abi Wright and she was the first of their three children. She inherited a taste for music from her mother who introduced her to multiple genres of music (Joni Mitchell, Parliament-Funkadelic, Pink Floyd, Phoebe Snow, Chaka Khan). At the tender age of four, Badu began singing and dancing in productions at the local Dallas Theatre Centre. It wasn't until her acting debut in the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Center's musical production of "Really Rosie," directed by her godmother Gwen Hargrove, that Badu realized she was a natural performer. "I played Alligator," Badu says, "and at 6 years old, I got my first standing ovation. I knew I wanted to bring people to their feet from that point on."
