Hailing from Birmingham, multi-award winning Jamelia embarked on her career as a singer-songwriter at the tender age of 15. With 7 Top 10 singles, Gold Albums & one Double Platinum in the UK alone, Jamelia's subsequent international success (including number 1's in Italy, Spain, Austrailia & Thailand) solidified her position as one of the UK's most successful black music artists.
After 10 years in the music industry, Jamelia decided to try her hand at Television, again achieving great success as a panelist, documentary author, presenter & talent show judge.
She has also followed her passions for acting, gaining starring roles in both TV & cinema, alongside accomplished talents such as Michael Madsen, Vinnie Jones & Daniel Mays to name a few.
Jamelia's modeling career has seen her grace the covers of Cosmopolitan, Elle & Harpers & Queen. She has fronted campaigns for Reebok, Pretty Polly, Toni & Guy and Boux Avenue among many others.
With all these accolades you'd think Jamelia would find it impossible to fit another string to her bow, but this one she sees as the most important. Jamelia is mother to three lovely daughters, 17-year-old Téja, 12-year-old Tiani, and baby, True, who she describes as her 'Magic girlz.'
Jamelia aims to continue to advocate for and empower girls and women like herself.
Jamelia will be speaking on The Baby Show Stage with MadeForMums at 12:45 on Friday 18 May.
