Profile Bio Text
Mýa Marie Harrison (born October 10, 1978), professionally known mononymously as Mýa, is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, actress, tap-dancer, model. Born and raised in Washington D.C., Harrison`s eponymous debut album with Interscope Records was released in April 1998, and sold over 2 million copies in the United States, producing the gold-certified top ten single "It`s All About Me" featuring Sisqo. Her second studio album, platinum-selling Fear of Flying, was released in 2000 and became a success stateside and worldwide, with lead single "Case of the Ex" becoming Mýa`s breakthrough hit, reaching number-one on the Australian Singles Chart. A year after, Harrison won her first Grammy Award for the worldwide number-one hit "Lady Marmalade," a cover version she recorded alongside Christina Aguilera, Lil` Kim, and P!nk for the soundtrack of the film Moulin Rouge! (2001). The singer`s third album Moodring was released in July 2003 stateside and eventually certified gold by the RIAA. Following several label changes, Mýa`s often-delayed fourth studio album, Liberation (2007), received a download-release in Japan only and led to her 2008 Japan-exclusive album Sugar & Spice. Having expanded her career to acting and product endorsement deals, Harrison has been engaged in product endorsement deals with brands such as Coca-Cola, Iceberg, Tommy Hilfiger, and Motorola and has had small roles in films such as Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004), Shall We Dance? (2004) and Cursed (2005). In 2002, she had a supporting role in the film adaptation of the 1975 Broadway musical Chicago, for which she won a Screen Actors Guild Award. She is competing in the ninth season of Dancing with the Stars.
