Joss Stone (born Joscelyn Eve Stoker on 11 April 1987) is an English soul and R&B singer-songwriter and occasional actress who emerged to fame in late 2003 with her multi-platinum debut album, The Soul Sessions, which made the 2004 Mercury Prize shortlist. Her second album, the also-multi-platinum Mind, Body & Soul, topped the albums chart in the United Kingdom for one week and spawned the UK top ten hit "You Had Me". Both album and single each received one nomination at the 2005 Grammy Awards, while Stone herself was nominated for "Best New Artist". Stone's latest album, Introducing Joss Stone, released in March 2007, has achieved gold status by the RIAA.

Throughout her career, Stone has sold over ten million albums worldwide, and has won two BRIT Awards and one Grammy Award. She also ventured in the film business, making her acting debut in the fantasy adventure film Eragon, released in December 2006, as a witch named Angela.
