Bebe Rexha - American singer and songwriter
Bleta Rexha was born on 30 August 1989 in New York. Bleta started singing when she was 4 years old. A while later, she began performing in local musicals. When Rexha was in high school, she sang in the school choir. Her voice is classified as the coloratura soprano.
When Bleta was a teenager, she recorded a song for a contest at the “Grammy Day” event. She won an award, which helped jump start her career. During the contest, she was noticed by a talent seeker and signed her first contract. At the same time, Bleta adopted a pseudonym. In Albanian, Bleta means “bee”. That’s how the young artist came up with a name Bebe.
In 2010, Bleta met a musician Pete Wentz and became the lead vocalist in his new project Black Cards. Bleta performed with the band for two years and then said goodbye to start a solo career.
In 2013, Bebe signed a contract with Warner Bros. Records. She recorded songs for different artists. For example, Bebe created "Like a Champion" for Selena Gomez and “Glowing” for Nikki Williams. Rexha’s first world hit was "The Monster", performed by Eminem and Rihanna. Initially, Bleta was planning to record the song herself but then handed it over to Eminem. The song came out in October and topped Billboard Hot 100 and many other charts. Six platinum certificates earned by the song were a sure sign that Bebe is about to become very famous.
