Being a beautiful young woman with unique style and magnificent talent, Amerie actually may have developed into something else than being a singer.However, she already had an intuition of her future as she confessed: "It sounds like a cliche, but I always knew I was going to sing. I will remember this day forever.” Though it may have been an island wedding, the bride didn’t opt for a simple white sheath and bare feet, instead wowing the guests in a Monique Lhullier gown complete with a dramatic cathedral train, baby blue Yves Saint Laurent Tribute sandals and jewelry by Rafaello & Co. Platinum Wedding planner Tiffany Nieves-Cook created an opulent romantic setting for the “Platinum Style” wedding, while Washington, D. officiating at the ceremony, the couple held their wedding, reception and associated events at the luxury resort Viceroy Anguilla.'My first album, All I Have, was very mellow R&B,' she says, 'as that was my vibe back then.People would meet me and say, "My, you're a dynamo but your album is so laid-back."' She laughs.Every tier of the cake was a different flavor, and the couple had three cake tastings to make sure it would be perfect.
'But all the music was being played around our house,' she stresses.I always knew that music was what I was going to do." Blending this divination along with perseverance, she has successfully developed herself to be a rising star in the American music industry.It probably just takes a little more time for her to become one of American R&B divas.'My mother was a pianist and my parents loved all kinds of music, so we'd have the Grease soundtrack, Barbra Streisand, Madonna, the Beastie Boys, heavy metal.
I think it all went in subliminally.' And, she adds, it's taken a while for all these influences to percolate into her own music.
After living in Germany and Alaska, her family finally settled in Virginia. "Being in DC offered me more opportunities for singing and meeting other musicians," she remarked.
