Teedra Moses is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter. Moses was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, to a gospel singing mother, Shirley Moses. She later moved to California with her mother and three siblings after her parents' separation. Moses brought a little bit of that fervor to her own vocal style when she began singing professionally. The final song on her debut album, "I Think of You", is dedicated to her late mother. In 1996 she birthed twin sons Taj and Ras with rapper Ras Kass.
