Happy Birthday Corinne Bailey Rae!

Happy Birthday Corinne Bailey Rae (February 26)!

Born in the UK town of Leeds, Corinne Bailey Rae took an early interest in music through her childhood church.  She also studied classical music as a youth, playing violin.  However, it was a later move to a more demonstrative Baptist church that began to expand her musical horizons, and a gift of an electric guitar as a teenager led to a love of Led Zeppelin and even broader musical tastes.  It also convinced her of her desire to become a professional singer.
