British singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae has been nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Female Artist category. Bailey Rae was previously honored with nominations in 2007 for Outstanding Album for her self-titled full-length, as well as Outstanding Female Artist, and was given the award for Outstanding New Artist in that same year. The Image Award nomination completes a year that saw Corinne nominated for a BET Award, Soul Train Award, Q Award, MOBO and short-listed for the UK's prestigious Mercury Prize. The 42nd installment of the NAACP Image Awards celebrates the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film, and will air live on March 4th at 8 PM EST on FOX.
Bailey Rae is also gearing up to release The Love EP on January 25 via Capitol Records. The Love EP is a five-song collection of covers that Bailey Rae calls an "homage to some of my favorite musicians, as well as a conversation between some of my musical influences." The release includes cover tracks by Bailey Rae of Prince, Bob Marley, Paul McCartney and Wings and others. Bailey Rae co-produced each track on The Love EP with Steve Brown who co-produced Bailey Rae's latest album The Sea.
Congrats to Bailey Rae on the award.
