Born to Korean and African-American parents, Amerie grew up in U.S. military sites around the world before finding her roots in Washington, DC, where she earned a degree in English and Fine Arts from Georgetown. Early demos led the way to Columbia Records debut album All I Have. The album hit RIAA gold on the strength of the R&B/pop crossover hit “Why Don’t We Fall in Love,” which won Amerie the Soul Train Music Awards’ Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist award.

Amerie continued her string on the RIAA gold Touch (2005). The album contained one of the top songs of the year, the #1 R&B smash “1 Thing,” which won the VIBE Award for Club Banger Of the Year. The song’s rise to the top was helped along by its inclusion in the soundtrack of the Will Smith-Eva Mendes film, Hitch. “1 Thing” became a platinum-selling digital download and mastertone, and was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Grammy; Touch was nominated for Best Contemporary R&B Album.
