Blessett has sung background for artists such as Monica and Bilal, which lead to her contract with Atlanta based company Rowdy Records. The soulful singer has also toured with singer Anthony Hamilton and collaborated with India Arie, which gained her some recognition from their respective fanbases.
Her ability to play the guitar and write her own songs sets her apart from many other singers visible today. Blessett released her first single “U Do It For Me” on the Kedar Entertainment label in 2006. Her first album Purpose, however, was not released until 2008. It was on the US Billboard R&B chart for a total of 14 weeks and reached #56. Her sophomore album Recovery was release on January 28, 2014 and became her first album to debut on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features her most popular single to date “Nobody But You.”
