Brandy, who was photographed with her 6-year-old daughter, Sy’rai Smith, for the next installment of the Skechers’ “Nothing Compares to Family” campaign, is a best-selling female artist, having sold over 10.5 million copies of her four studio albums in the United States and over 25 million albums worldwide. Additionally, she has won over 100 awards as a recording artist.
While maintaining a recording career Norwood also gained fame for starring in several film and television productions, including popular Moesha (1996-2001), a supporting role in the 1998 horror sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and starring roles in a 1997 version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella and Double Platinum, two of television’s highest rated special programs.
Her fifth album (Epic Records) is due in November.
“It’s great to be part of Skechers’ campaign, which promotes and benefits families and children,” Brandy said.
