Contemporary R&B talent Vivian Green has been writing songs since she was 11. She grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and quickly developed her musical skills, practicing piano at age eight. As a teenager, she wrote songs, sent out demos and performed wherever she could find gigs. A Love Story was her debut album, narrowly missing the Top 50 of the Billboard 200 album chart in 2002. She released Vivian in May 2005 and reached number 18, and her following album of 2010, Beautiful, also made the Billboard 200. She has been nominated for multiple awards from Black Entertainment Television, Lady of the Soul Train and Soul Train. She released her sixth album, VGVI, in the fall of 2017, which was considered for three Grammy nominations.
