Biography

Angel Grant (Born November 24th) is an R&B singer who is considered an R&B one hit wonder in the United states. She scored minor chart success in the late 90’s with the single “Lil Red Boat” produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis for their newly created label Flyte Tyme Records. The duo is famous for their work with Janet Jackson, Chante Moore and Mariah Carey. Her debut album titled Album followed but didn’t sell well, even though her videos were hits on BET and MTV.

Born Angela Grant on November 24th into a family of five, singer Angel Grant sang in the church choir and school while growing up in Columbus, GA. Her demo tape found its way to mega-producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Grant signed with the duo’s Flyte Tyme Records in 1997. Her first single, “Lil’ Red Boat,” was released in May 1998.
Her debut CD Album was released on July 2, 1998, as the first release from Flyte Tyme Records distributed through Uptown/Universal. With contributions from frequent Jam & Lewis collaborator Big Jim Wright, Alex Richbourg ,bassist Paul Johnson, and Stevie Wonder, Album is an exceptional debut for both Grant and Jam & Lewis’ label. Album is refreshingly retro and eclectic and allows the singer to exhibit her personality; Grant co-wrote all the songs with the producers and Wright. At times, Grant sounds like Janet Jackson, who was formerly produced by Jam and Lewis, and like Jackson’s Control, Album can be played all the way through. The CD’s overall sound could be described as organic because the tracks flow into each other, both literally (there are no audio gaps) and musically.
