Biography

Taral Hicks (born September 21, 1974 in The Bronx, New York) is an African-American actress, musician and sister of singer D’Atra Hicks.Hicks signed a deal with Motown Records (then-headed by Andre Harrell) and released a single solo album This Time. Her first song, “Ooh, Ooh Baby”, produced, written and featuring Missy Elliott charted on the Billboard R&B singles chart. However, the lead single intended to debut her singing career was Distant Lover; an uptempo track produced by Teddy Riley. The album didn’t take off until the second single, Silly, a remake of the classic R&B hit by Deniece Williams was released. Featuring a black-and-white video directed by Hype Williams, the single became successful.

With collaboration on the video Silly, Hype Williams cast Hicks in his directorial film debut, 1998’s Belly as Kisha, DMX’s abused girlfriend. The video for Silly appeared in one of the film’s scenes. It wasn’t until 2000 that Hicks appeared again on screen in the short film Are You Cinderella? with actor Wood Harris. Two television guest roles followed: 2002’s 100 Centre Street in the episode titled Fathers, and in a 2003 episode of Soul Food: The Series titled The New Math.
