QUEEN LATIFAH (Georgia Byrd) received rave reviews, an Oscar® nomination for Best Supporting Actress, a Golden Globe nomination and a SAG Award nomination for her portrayal as Mama Morton in Miramax's "Chicago.”

Following that, she starred in Disney's box office hit "Bringing Down the House,” on which she also acted as executive producer through her company, Flavor Unit Entertainment. She most recently starred in and produced the "Barbershop” spin-off "Beauty Shop.” Along with the 2004 comedy "Taxi,” her other films include "Set It Off,” "Living Out Loud,” "Brown Sugar,” "Bone Collector” and "Jungle Fever,” her film debut.

Her career in films was launched by the success of her first television series, "Living Single,” now in syndication.

Latifah teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer Arif Mardin as well as Ron Farm to release her first vocal album, Queen Latifah — The Dana Owens Album, which has sold over a million copies and received a Grammy nomination. The New Jersey native burst onto the scene through rap with her ground breaking 1989 debut All Hail the Queen, which set the visual and contextual standard for female rappers. She has earned three Grammy nominations as well as a Grammy Award for Best Solo Rap Performance in 1994.

A performer, label president, author and entrepreneur, Queen Latifah has blossomed into a one-woman entertainment conglomerate. She formed, with manager Sha-Kim Compere, Flavor Unit Entertainment, which produced last fall's comedy "The Cookout” and the above-mentioned "Beauty Shop.”

She also serves as co-chair for the Lancelot H. Owens Scholarship Foundation, Inc. Established by her mother, Rita Owens, to perpetuate the memory of a loving son and brother, the foundations provides scholarships to students who excel scholastically, but are limited in financial resources.
