It happened in 2005 on Missy Elliott's UPN reality show, The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott. She went on to win the competition, being a favorite throughout despite having previously released an album before Missy's show. The show did not garner huge ratings. During a Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes concert in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, she performed the song "Killing Me Softly". In a recent blurb from BET.com, Jessica is finishing the final touches on her yet-to-be-titled album, which features production from Timbaland, Vidal & Dre, Walter Millsap, Missy Elliott, 9th Wonder, Warryn Campbell, Brian Michael Cox, Mike City, Nisan Stewart, and The Avila Brothers (of Usher/Toni Braxton fame), set to be released in February 2007, with a single/video release in December 2006.
The album also includes collaborations with American Idol winner Fantasia, Missy Elliott, Tweet, Karen Clark Sheard, Kelly Price and Faith Evans. The last three artists mentioned all join together with Jessica on the gospel-themed "Stand By Me", a track dedicated to Hurricane Katrina victims. http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Jessica-Betts Read more on Last.fm.
