Oct. 30: Keisha Buchanan of the Sugarbabes is 29-years-old today.


Keisha Kerreece Fayeanne Buchanan is an English singer-songwriter and was a founding member of the BRIT Award-winning girl group the Sugababes, originally with Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy. Originally the group was called the Sugarbabies.  

During Keisha's tenure with The Sugababes, the group had seven number one singles, and two number one studio albums, making the Sugababes one of the most successful female acts of the 21st century. Buchanan was asked to leave the band in September 2009, and embarked on a solo career. The Sugarbabes now have none of the original three members.

The Sugababes had seven number-one singles, "Freak Like Me," "Round Round," "Hole in the Head," "Do They Know it's Christmas?" (with Band Aid 20), "Push the Button," "Walk This Way" and "About You Now." They have also had several top-three hits including "Ugly," "Girls" and Buchanan's final release with the group, "Get Sexy."
The group has also had six top-ten albums, two of which, Taller in More Ways and Change, went to number one in the UK and were certified triple platinum.

In terms of record sales, the Sugababes are the most successful female act of the century, and have had #1 singles in fifteen other countries in Europe and Asia — "Hole in the Head" also went to #1 on the U.S. Billboard dance chart.
