Badu resumed the tour during the fall with additional dates in America and Europe.
Her mother raised her, her brother Eevin, and her sister Nayrok alone after separating from their father, William Wright Jr.
To provide for her family, the children's maternal and paternal grandmothers often helped look after them.
By the age of 14, Badu was freestyling for a local radio station alongside such talent as Roy Hargrove.
In her youth, she had decided to change the spelling of her first name from Erica to Erykah, as she believed her original name was a "slave name". She adopted the surname "Badu" because it is her favorite jazz scat sound; also, among the Akan people in Ghana , it is the term for the 10th-born child. To concentrate on music full-time, she left the university in before graduating, and took several minimum-wage jobs to support herself.
