Des'ree [born Desiree Weeks, November 30th 1968 in London, England] was one of Britain's most successful pop/soul vocalists throughout the 1990's. Growing up in South London, Des'ree's introduction to music came from her parents, who, coming to Britain from the Caribbean, brought with them their island sounds, enabling their daughter to experience reggae, calypso and jazz along with British pop music. It was on returning from a three year spell in Barbados with her family, at the age of fourteen, that Des'ree knew she wanted her life to revolve around music. An avid reader from an early age, she soon found herself moving from studying poetry to writing it, condensing everything she learned from her culture, history and life experiences and setting it to music. It is a style of composition that has not changed over the years.
In 1994 the single 'You Gotta Be' hit the Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 and was a hit in the UK three times. It also allowed Des'ree to break into America. 'You Gotta Be' was also a major hit in the United States, and it was featured in the movie, The Next Karate Kid, starring Hilary Swank. It also was featured in a prominent promotional campaign for Good Morning America. Prior to the release of her album 'Supernatural', Des'ree was busy in the film world, providing soundtrack material for Spike Lee's Clockers, Set It Off and more recently William Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet, a film which marked her personal big screen debut. Director Baz Luhrmann approached her to contribute a song to his Hollywood interpretation of Romeo And Juliet' and to critical acclaim Des'ree sang 'Kissing You' [Love Theme From Romeo And Juliet]' at 'The Capulet's Ball', where the young Romeo [Leonardo DiCaprio] and Juliet [Claire Danes] appear in their first scene together. This film launched DiCaprio and Danes to stardom and Des'ree's music is intimately associated with that moment.
