LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Grammy-winning songstress Erykah Badu (news) and two newcomers to the R&B recording scene, Heather Headley (news) and Vivian Green (news), led the field of solo nominees on Thursday for the 9th annual Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards.

Badu’s performance of “Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip Hop),” featuring rapper Common, garnered bids for best R&B/soul single by a solo artist, R&B/soul or rap song of the year and best video.

Headley and Green likewise earned best solo single nominations for their respective songs, “He Is” and “Emotional Rollercoaster,” as well as album-of-the-year bids for their debut releases — Headley’s “This is Who I Am” and Green’s “Love Story.”

Green, a former backup singer for Jill Scott (news) who began writing songs at age 11, and the Trinidad-born Headley, who won a Tony Award in 1998 for her title role as a Nubian princess in the Broadway musical “Aida,” each scored a third nomination in the coveted category of best new solo artist.

Rounding out the solo candidates for album of the year were Whitney Houston (news) for “Just Whitney…” and India.Arie’s “Voyage to India.”

Badu, whose last album was 2000’s “Mama’s Gun,” earned two Grammys (news – web sites) in 1997 from her debut release, “Baduizm,” including the prize for best R&B album, and a third Grammy in 1999 for best rap performance by a duo or group for “You Got Me.”

Receiving four Lady of Soul nominations, including a bid for best new group, was neo-soul duo Floetry, consisting of Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart. Their debut release, “Floetic,” also scored bids for album of the year by a group, for R&B/soul or rap song of the year for its title track, and best single by a group for “Say Yes.”

The Lady of Soul Awards will be handed out Aug. 23 at the Pasadena Civic Center. Headley is slated to host the show, along with Aisha Tyler, Arsenio Hall (news) and Tyrese.
