At age 4 Berri’s vocal talent was discovered at church while singing hymns. However, it was at age 16 that Allison Taylor became Berri when the boys in her neighbour nicknamed her “Berri” because her short hairstyle made her look like the famous actress Halle Berry. Though she loved to sing, Berri had to put her passion on hold to help her family which led to an application to the Jamaica Defense Force and a course in culinary arts.
But it was difficult for Berri not to sing. Inspired by the great late Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin, Berri seek every opportunity to sing which saw her singing at church, store openings, weddings and wakes. It was at a wake that Berri was discovered by Derrol Frazer, CEO of ‘Out a Road Records’.
