Debelah Morgan (born September 29, 1977, Detroit, Michigan) is an American R&B singer and songwriter. Her stage name was simply Debelah at the beginning of her music career, but changed to her full name after her first music label dropped her. Morgan has enjoyed sporadic success, peaking with her song "Dance With Me." Debelah was born to an African-American father and an Indian mother, and is conversational in Hindi. She also has learned to sing in several languages, including French, Italian, German, Hindi, and Portuguese. She started taking piano lessons at the age of 3. Her family moved from Detroit to Arizona, where she won beauty pageants at the age of fifteen and organized a gospel choir in her high school. She majored in Vocal Performance. Debelah Morgan possesses a 5 octave vocal range with an upper register comparable to Mariah Carey's, prompting one reviewer at hiponline.com to announce that the diva "should watch her back" as Debelah's skills would appear to rival Carey's own renowned whistle abilities.
