R&B Queen: Jully Black
Jully Black won us over in 2007 with her hit Seven Day Fool, a remake of the Etta James classic. Black, who grew up in the notorious Jane and Finch area in Toronto, released her first single back in 1998. Now she’s geared up to wow us again with that booming voice and onstage magnetism with a new album titled (8)ight. Click here to watch her perform the first single “Fugitive.” Here’s the skinY on the glamazon with the power pipes.
Your name and a sentence that defines who you are. Jully Black, born Jullyann Inderia Gordon. I’m a girl, a lady, a woman, a queen, I’m everything I can dream!
Your birthplace/where you call home now. I was born in Toronto, Ontario and still call this place home.
What drives you in a positive way and in a negative way? The idea of changing lives for the better drives me positively. My life’s “tires” won’t begin to roll on a negative road.

Sleep, water, Omega-3s, vitamin E, and exercise. I credit my healthy lifestyle habits from my 76 year old mother. She doesn’t eat fast food, gets 8-9 hours sleep, and walks everywhere. She uses old school Palmer’s products. She’s my SHEro!
Perform (my favorite thing to do!), sleep overs, travel, cook, hang with my family, and play with my dogs. That’s my pup Coco Chanel!
