The Life Of Ms. Green

Vivian Green grew up in Philadelphia, where she started singing at an early age. She began playing the piano at age eight and writing songs when she was 11. At 13, she joined a girl group called Younique. She spent her teens writing, sending out demos, and singing wherever she could. Her break came when she was hired as a backup singer for Jill Scott, who took her on tour internationally. That connection eventually led to record company interest, and Green signed to Columbia Records in November 2001. Her debut album, "A Love Story," was released one year later detailing her emotional love journey with her husband.

Though only 23 when she released "A Love Story," Green turned that page with a CD that showcases personal lyrics and her exceptional voice. The recording features songs that follow big changes in Green's life, all set to a range of soul, pop and jazz-inspired arrangements showcasing her rich vocal talents.

As she starts to release her sophomore album, self-titled "Vivian," she will present another level of musical journey. She has now split from her husband, giving birth and is now a stronger, fulfilled woman. And just like her life detailed in "A Love Story," no doubt this next phase in her life will be outlined in plain site on "Vivian." She can only climb higher.
