After she settled in Atlanta as a teenager, she determined on music as a profession. Ciara joined a girl group, which failed to work out, but she was inspired to hone her songwriting abilities, which led into a meeting with Jazze Pha, a leading Atlanta producer at that time. She was signed to Atlanta’s LaFace Records in 2003 and released a 2004 hit single and debut record, both labeled Goodies.
Ciara was born Ciara Princess Harris on October 25, 1985, in Austin, Texas. Ciara settled in Atlanta as a teenager and after seeing pop group Destiny’s Child on television, she determined that music was what she wished to pursue.
Even though the group broke up, she saw this as a chance to focus on her songwriting abilities—a clever move, given Atlanta’s reputation as a centre of urban music talent. She got a publishing deal and met leading Atlanta producer Jazze Pha, who helped her get a record deal at LaFace Records.
The single that set Ciara to the map, “Goodies,” was co-composed by her and produced by popular rapper/producer Lil Jon. The song reached the very top of the singles charts in the U. S. and the U.K.
The record also garnered the newest artist four nominations in the 2005 Grammy Awards. Her second studio album, 2006’s Ciara: The Evolution, did well in America, reaching No. 1 on the albums chart and achieving platinum status. Nevertheless, her third record release, 2009’s Fantasy Ride, marked a serious decline in sales, despite its big hit single “Love Sex Magic,” featuring star Justin Timberlake (and the racy video that followed the tune).
Always known for her agile dancer’s body and distinctive dance moves, Ciara is now a regular in vogue magazines at the same time, partially due to her deal with Wilhelmina Models, which focuses on casting her for photo shoots and advertisements. Her career has created eight Billboard Hot 100 top 10 singles, three MTV Video Music Awards and one Grammy Award. She’s also written or co-written tunes for many of music’s biggest stars, including Missy Elliott and Bow Wow.
Ciara dated rap star and television host Bow Wow (Shad Gregory Moss, once called Lil Bow Wow) for nearly two years; the couple broke up in 2006. Ciara also worked using the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes of terminally ill kids.
