One, Two, T'ree... Sing It, Nancy!
The first female MC in the reggae dancehall scene, Sister Nancy, began her musical career in the late '70s while working with her brother, Brigadier Jerry. Performing at Reggae Sunsplash and releasing a live album on Heartbeat Records, she quickly became a celebrity with the release of two LPs and a collaboration with Yellowman. She still performs occasionally but currently works at a bank in New Jersey, stating that she gave her career a rest so that other female DJs could step up to the plate.
