Vivian is currently in the studio with James Poyser and Adam Blackstone, who both worked on her first two albums, prepping her new album that is set to be released in early 2012.
Vivian recorded the entire album “Beautiful” with Grammy-nominated producer Anthony Bell, a longtime friend and collaborator who made key production contributions to her first two albums, and whose extensive resume also includes work with Jazmine Sullivan, Jewel, Musiq, Raheem DeVaughn and Jill Scott.
Green released her debut album, A Love Story, in 2002. The album was certified Gold and featured the hits "Emotional Rollercoaster" and “Fanatic.” She followed it up with her sophomore album, in 2005, Vivian, which featured the hit singles, “Gotta Go, Gotta Leave (Tired)” and "I Like it But I Don’t Need It." Green sold close to 800,000 between the two releases. Ms. Green also has a well-earned reputation as a riveting live performer, and has shared stages with such artists as Maxwell, Teena Marie, Betty Wright, Chaka Khan, Q-Tip, Anthony Hamilton, and Common.
Vivian portrayed Billie Holiday in the Cole Porter biopic Delovely, and appeared in the ABC series “American Dreams” as Brenda Holloway, and performed Holloway’s classic Motown song “Every Little Bit Hurts.”
She also wrote "Dear God" for Boyz II Men for their platinum-selling album Evolution and wrote the music for David E. Talbert's popular all-star stage play Love in the Nick of Tyme, which debuted in 2007.
