Blu Cantrell's Backstage Beginnings

Tiffany "Blu" Cantrell was born in Providence, Rhode Island. Blu Cantrell was really into music at a young age - especially jazz. Blu Cantrell's mom was a jazz singer and Blu had plenty of opportunity to see her in action because her mom couldn't afford a babysitter. Whenever she had a performance she would take Blu Cantrell and her siblings to the show. As a young adult, Blu Cantrell found comfort in music - it helped heal her broken heart from love gone wrong. Some of Blu Cantrell's biggest musical influences include Billie Holiday, Sade, Sting, Prince, Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston.

    I can't believe no one's made a topic about this, or at least one that I've seen. It had some in tears, and it was all over the anime/cartoon/nerd world. For people who watch the Legend of Korra, what did you think about the finale? Are Korra and Asami and item? Do you think it adds up? One of the creators, Brian Konietzko, confirmed that Korrasami was canon. I just feel bad for Mako that both of his girlfriends ended up going for each other.
