Millie Jackson

Millie Jackson’s voice was enough to make her an R&B singing star, but it was what she said between songs – and how she said it – that made her famous. Tackling topics previously considered taboo, and with unrivaled comic timing, Millie spoke to a generation of young black women that didn’t often hear themselves represented on TV or on the radio. From renegade to pioneer, Millie made her mark, influencing artists like Roxanne Chante’ and Da Brat along the way. Millie Jackson told her story to Unsung – and needless to say, she didn’t mince words.
