Black Girl Lost
LADY GOINES Born and raised in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, NY, 27 year old Lady Goines has overcome many trials and tribulations. Coming from a family of musical background, she was blessed with many talents. Whether it was in church on Sunday singing in the choir with her sisters & her mother playing the piano, the Glee Club in school, or in her fathers nightclub, she always loved to sing with her father being her greatest inspiration. By the time she was eight years old, she was referred to as the "Black Annie" for performing "The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow" at various events. Having a very loud voice and high pitch, she was also known as the little girl who didn't need a microphone. She was promised a music scholarship from the Board of Education but as she grew older the streets kept her from achieving it.Lady Goines feels she missed her chance when she was younger, but is older, wiser, and has now discovered her many hidden talents. She and her sister formed a duo called "Remaniz" in the late 90's. They wrote many songs together but things didn't work out because of problems with management . She has since then become solo and has done numerous showcases and performances. She's starred in an independent movie called "Better Days" and also wrote a movie script about her own life called "Ghetto Queen" which tells her story about a ghetto princess growing up in the hood & dealing with all types of drama that she's been through. Through her struggle, she's remained determined to succeed and has grown to become more independent with her own project. In 2001 she promoted and distributed her first single, in 2004 she also dropped a single in which both did very well on the streets, and in winter 2006/2007 she dropped her debut album called "Black Girl Lost" which she is presently promoting independently. She is a singer, writer, producer, CEO, and first lady of C-Mac Enterprise. Dealing with the reality of poverty and being caught up in the street life, she compares her writing skills to the books of the legendary Donald Goines. Her songs are filled with soul. The notes hold the pain and the words tell her story. Being from the city, but a country girl at heart having southern roots, Lady Goines is representing for all hoods. She calls her raw, street, R&B sound "Reality & Blues". A refreshing new voice of the ghetto & Brooklyns best kept secret......... "Lady Goines" is comin'at cha'.
