It was just too much too fast. In the mid-'90s, N'dea Davenport, the focal point of the '90s jazzy funk band the Brand New Heavies, decided to walk away. The constant worldwide touring, the demands to keep pumping out hits and the desire to explore her own artistry were the chief reasons for the exit. "We didn't get a chance to catch our breath," says the sultry-voiced singer, who's calling from New York City. "It was all so overwhelming." In the interim, Davenport released a woefully overlooked, self-titled album in 1998 while the Brand New Heavies struggled without her. Songwriter and veteran session singer Siedah Garrett replaced the Georgia-raised performer.

Brittany Walker has been a diplomat for some time. With three younger sisters, the 17-year-old often found herself as the liaison between them and her parents. "I could break it down for them," she said. She has also been told from an early age that she was a leader -- another trait that could be attributed to being a big sister. Beginning in July, Brittany, now a junior at Old Mill High School, will use her leadership and diplomacy skills as the new student member of the Anne Arundel County Board of Education.
