Miki Howard

Miki Howard grew up in the church, where both of her parents were gospel singers. Her mother was also a member of the gospel group the Caravans and was acquainted with various entertainers. Howard's mother would take her to the homes of various stars such as Aretha Franklin and Mavis Staples.

While still in elementary school, Howard moved to Los Angeles with her mom. At the age of 15, she performed in a teen pageant. After the show, she met Side Effect member Augie Johnson, who happened to be in the audience and began working with Howard creatively. After a period of time, Howard became a Side Effect member -- upon the departure of Sylvia St. James. Howard's tenure with the group lasted a few years. During this time, she also had two children by Johnson. In addition to singing with Side Effect, she did background vocals for Wayne Henderson, Roy Ayers, Stanley Turrentine, and several other artists.

After leaving Side Effect, Howard signed a deal with Atlantic. Her first hit for the label was the Billboard R&B Top Ten single "Come Share My Love." She followed that with the remake of Glenn Miller's 1940 hit "Imagination." Her success continued with two more Top Ten singles, "Baby Be Mine" and "That's What Love Is." The latter was a duet with Gerald Levert and was the result of the creative union Howard formed with Marc Gordon and Levert. Howard and Levert later became romantically involved, and that romance spawned one of Howard's biggest hits, "Love Under New Management." The song was written during their brief love affair, but was released after their romance had dissolved.

In 1990, Howard signed a deal with Giant, which facilitated the release of her number one smash hit "Ain't Nobody Like You." Howard's lifeline at Giant was cut short due to an altercation her husband had at the label. She also made an appearance as Billie Holiday in a club scene in the Spike Lee movie Malcom X. Howard continued to issue albums throughout the '90s and early 2000s, a few of them heavy on -- or wholly reliant upon -- covers. Her releases during these years included Femme Fatale (1992), Shining Through (1993), Live Plus (1996), Can't Count Me Out (1997), Three Wishes (2001), and Pillow Talk (2006). ~ Craig Lytle, Rovi

I have been playing Miki for the last few days and wanted to continue.... . a woman who definitely is a favorite and true vocalist, talented and beautiful! Thanks Miki!!!!!
I now understand the Chemistry between Miki and Gerald, Thats What Love Is. Two of my favorite artist. We dont get R&B like this anymore. The FEW artist of today who can Sing,theyre not allowed to,or overlooked. R&B will Never Die. Music Industry Please Give US REAL MUSIC AGAIN
She one off the best...
Love me some Miki. Saw her on Unsung about a month ago and while I would love to see artists like her Stephanie Mills, Anita Baker and Regina Belle etc make a come back they really don't fit today's music world. They're too talented, too genuine, too much for these non-talented youngsters!!
My ex turned me on to Miki and thats the best thing that I got out of that relationship lol because he is gone and I still listen to all of Miki's C.D'S and truly luv all of her music.
I love her voice.
Thays my Girl...LOVE HER FOREVER
I just love her!!!
Let's just, say I still have Miki Howard cassettes... s h e can really blow. She is from the Stephanie Mills era when music really touched you in ways that for the moment it felt Urgent to listen to more. her set of pipes should be crystallized and/or bronzed. They don't come like this anymore. I love it.
miss artists like Miki, Stephanie, Denise, and etc...the music they made is untouchable and unbeatable!! !

convincing spirit of love is worth the time NOT to quit on life.
What can we do as fans to encourage producers to stop allowing our performers to go by the way side after they have made their money, we have seen these events play out over and over again.

Ms. Howard along the many is truly missed!

I do understand this industry is a dirty business!

With the new artist (s) coming about there needs to be an agency that will protect these entertainers no matter what (coverage should help them through good times, slow times and bad times).

We love M. Howard!
Ain't Nobody Like You, was one of my favorite songs, and I still enjoy hearing it today. I would like to see Miki make a new hit for 2011/2012.

Her voice is sorely missed. Come back to your fans. Glad you did the Unsung episode.
She will always be a great artist to me!!

MIki Howard is the epitomy of REAL MUSIC and an artist in a class all by herself. I would have never graduated from Grambling without your tunes before class, before the block parties...an d after my cramming sessions...I M A G I N A T I O N Baby!
