Her Eurovision song “Where are you?” became an international chart success. Unfortunately, her record company EMI decided to cancel the release of her follow-up record. In 2000, she supplied the lead vocals on Tru Faith & Dub Conspiracy’s UK garage cover of Adina Howard’s “Freak Like Me”. She went on to record with the jazz-funk band Incognito,providing vocals for more than 10 of their records. Since 2005, she is part of The Allstars Collective. In 2014, Imaani released her debut album as a solo singer.
