Dancehall Queen/Diva Lady Saw talks about singing in church before being a Dancehall artist.
Lady Saw, considered one of the greatest female dancehall artists of all time, actually started singing in church before she got her big break in the dancehall world in the early 1990s.
In her recent interview with VLADTV, the queen of dancehall shared about her musical history, which inspired her on her dancehall career.
“I first started doing music while I was in church,” Lady Saw said. “I was a Seventh Day Adventist and they use to call me up in the evenings to sing. Also there was a dancehall close to my home in St. Mary where I grew up and my dad use to do night fishing and he use to take my mother and then my older sister use to take us through the window to the dancehall to watch our grand mother perform because she use to dance.”
Since she started her career, Lady Saw has released big hits and did international collaborations including the Grammy-winning duet “Underneath It All” with No Doubt.
Furthermore, she revealed that she’s currently working on her latest album, “Alter Ego” offering a mix of her and Marion Hall.
