|Info:||HeeSun Lee has come far from where she started. Born in
Seoul, Korea on June 4th, 1983, she was sadly abandoned by
her birth family. She was then placed into a foster home,
and later adopted when she was four months old. |
Growing up in Staten Island, New York was easy, until she
met her teenage years and began struggling with her
identity. Heesun realized parts of her life were missing
because of being adopted, and that fueled her desire to
express her emotions.
She started writing poetry at the age of thirteen, and then
as hip-hop began to influence her style, she took an
interest in writing songs. Her heart was placed on paper
every time she picked up a pen, and every battle she was
fighting was evident in her rhymes.
After her grandmother passed away in 1999, she gave her life
to Christ, and that sparked the beginning of her music
career. Heesun started taking her passion more seriously, as
she performed at local church events and school functions.
During her freshman year of college at Rutgers University,
she hooked up with a ministry in Elmhurst, Queens, and
recorded, "It's On," her first single.
After that, she started developing her craft all over New
York City, performing at detention centers, block parties,
church events, and colleges. She got heavy rotation at the
Rutgers, Newark campus radio station, and was performing at
her college on a daily basis.
Heesun was also a supporter of and performed several times
for, "You Gotta Believe," a cable show that promotes
adoption for teenagers. In 2005, she got the opportunity to
perform at Flavor Fest in Tampa, Florida, where some of the
biggest Gospel MC's minister at.
In 2004, she came out with her own EP Album and mixtape, and
featured on 2 Compilation CDs.
Through it all, she still managed to graduate with a B.A. in
Between 2006-2007, personal issues were taking a toll on
Heesun's spiritual life and it caused her to take a break
She eventually decided to move on and start things over. In
the middle of 2007, she met with Rock from Jahrock'n
Productions, and together they produced her first
full-length album called, "Re-defined" (2008).
This album mixes up Heesun's love for hip-hop and poetry.
She comes in with a little swagger in her rhymes, and then
brings it back to her roots with some spoken word pieces
that are destined to hit the soul. Heesun breaks every
stereotype and never compromises her self-worth in this
album, and anyone who hears it will understand the true
meaning of being re-defined.
