Fans first began noticing Andra Day’s massive weight loss during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards that was held on 10th February 2019.
While the viewers were split on her outfit for the occasion, there were no doubts over the singer’s change in physique.

Previously, back in February 2016, Andra Day was on the chubbier side as many fans mistook her for Rihanna during her appearance at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Andra Day’s Talents were Discovered by Stevie Wonder’s Wife
A show in 2010 outside the California Strip Mall turned to be an incredible experience for Andra Day.
As the singer revealed to the Detroit Free Press, a video of that specific performance ended up being witnessed by fashion designer Kai Millard Morris, who, at the time, was in a marital relationship with the music legend Stevie Wonder.
After Morris urged her husband to check out her latest musical discovery, Day got a call from the Sir Duke singer himself.
Day told the publication:
I was so nervous. I kept saying to myself that he’s just a regular person. But in the same breath, I was saying, ‘He’s a legend.’ I felt like a meteor hit my house. It inspired me to keep pushing.
However, she had to wait another year before she and the music icon met again with Day alleging her manager had “sabotaged” the relationship.
Fortunately, they were actually able to reconcile, with Andra dumping the manager while she signed with the label operated by producer Adrian Gurvitz.
Years after their very first exchange, Day confessed she always found it unreal to have the one and only Stevie Wonder as a part of her life.
Speaking on Live Nation TV, she said:
Being in contact with him even today, it’s still a very weird experience to be like, ‘Oh, hey Steve.’
Stevie Wonder did not just pave the path for Andra Day’s eventual commercial success, he also asked her to work on a new version of his 1967 holiday hit, Someday at Christmas in December 2015.
Following the release of the music video, Day provided a homage to Wonder with a beautiful note in the comment section, saying:
Thank you for all of your support along the way. You have truly been there for me since Day 1.
Andra Day later gained further stardom when she and Wonder performed the holiday melody together in a TV advert for Apple.
