Angie Stone stars in TV One's reality docu-series "R&B Divas."

Angie Stone got her big break by joining Gwendolyn Chisolm and Cheryl Cook to complete the rap trio The Sequence. It was with that group that she recorded the hits "Funk You Up," "I Don't Need Your Love (Part One)," and "Funky Sound" for the record label Sugarhill. This soon led to Stone's first commercial success "Seems You're much Too Busy," a dance track on Vertical Hold's album that became an R&B Top 40 hit in 1993.

Stone made her debut as a solo artist under Arista with her 1999 album "Black Diamond" before she moved to J-Records in 2001. It was here that she released the albums "Mahogany Soul" (2001) and "Stone Love" (2004). Angie's first two albums went gold, and her 2004 record quickly climbed to number 14 on the charts, making it her biggest hit.

More recently, Angie played the lead in the theater tour "Issues: We've Got Them All." She then appeared on the fourth season of VH1's reality television show "Celebrity Fit Club." In 2007 she released her fourth studio album, "The Art of Love & War," which became her first number one album on the R&B/Hip Hop charts.

Diagnosed with diabetes in 1999, Stone began a diabetes awareness campaign in 2008 in conjunction with FACE (Fearless African Americans Connected and Empowered) at the Southside YMCA in Chicago. The campaign was launched to inspire behavioral changes in African Americans, who are disproportionately affected by diabetes.
