Ciara returned to her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, to surprise students using computer coding skills to remix her songs.

The 34-year-old R&B singer sat in on a class at Paul Duke STEM High School in Norcross, a suburb northeast of Atlanta.

The STEM school focuses on science, technology, engineering and math education. The students used their coding skills to remix the R&B star's hit songs "Melanin" and "Set".

The "Body Party" singer spoke to the class and watched students rework her music, as they participated in a competition sponsored by Amazon’s future engineer program.

Using EarSketch, a platform developed by Georgia Institute of Technology that teaches computer science through music remixing, students will submit their creations for judging and could win Amazon gift cards or a trip to Seattle to present their work.

Ciara moved to Atlanta as a teenager and graduated from a high school outside of Atlanta before joining the hip hop group, Hearsay. She went on to launch a successful career as a songwriter and solo performer.

Ciara Wilson drops new music titled "Melanin" featuring Lupita Nyong'o's rap persona "Troublemaker", Ester Dean, City Girls and La La Anthony. The single celebrates dark skinned women and the men who love them.

"This is ultimately an anthem of self-love, which is a journey I've been on since my Beauty Marks album," says Ciara. "It celebrates the beautiful shades of culture that comprise the inner and outer beauty of everyone. Embracing the unique nature of our skin tones threads together the tapestry of humankind."

The project features Lupita's "Troublemaker" rap alter ego, first introduced last month on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Janet Jackson heaped praise on Ciara's "too cute" children for dressing as her and big brother Randy Jackson for Halloween.

Ciara shared a snap of 5-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn and 2-year-old daughter Sienna Princess as they rocked out in matching pink costumes on her Instagram page.

Ciara, 34, captioned the shot "The Jacksons", and the picture quickly caught the attention of Janet, 53, who commented with a sweet and simple: "Too cute," WENN.com reports.

While many fans assumed Future was dressed as Janet's late brother Michael, others were quick to point out that he was actually dressed as Randy, now 57.

Janet and her brother Randy were the youngest members of the musical Jackson family from Gary, Indiana. The two siblings joined their famous brothers - Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie - when they performed on the road during summer breaks.

Janet and Randy were popular for their grown up skits during the Jacksons' dinner & show tours. Little Janet brought the house down when she delivered Mae West's famous line to Randy: "Why don't you come up and see me sometime?"

Randy became an official member of the Jacksons in 1976 when he replaced older brother Jermaine, who left the group to pursue a solo career with Motown after contract negotiations fell through. Motown kept the "Jackson 5" name.

 

Future and Sienna's costumes were created by designer Michael Costello, who told E! News that Ciara was "very hands on" during the process of designing the outfits. Future's tuxedo and Sienna's dress both took between three to four days to complete, and cost between $1,200 and $1,400 apiece.

"I think the costumes are just super special because they're fun, they're youthful, they're a timeless classic," he explained. "I like that Ciara wanted to do something vintage-inspired and super adorable. I love the thought and creative process behind it. It's just fun! And it's refreshing because I'm kind of sick and tired of seeing superheroes and zombies everywhere."

R&B singer Ciara Wilson, who turned 34 last week, celebrated her dad Carlton Harris's 58th birthday with a dinner party on Monday, Oct. 28.

The proud singer posted a video of the happy occasion on her Instagram stories on Monday. "58 is a great date," she said before telling her father "I love you," and giving him a peck on the cheek.

Carlton is a very supportive father who looked after his grandson, Future Zahir Wilburn, when the boy's father, rapper Future, was busy chasing skirts. Little Future now has another stable father figure in his life, Ciara's first husband, NFL quarterback Russell Wilson.

Although Carlton was a loving father to his only daughter, he wasn't a faithful husband to his long-suffering wife, Jackie Harris (pictured right). Rumor has it that he cheated on his wife repeatedly. His infidelities led Jackie to file paperwork to end their marriage. But they remain good friends.

For that reason Ciara had a difficult time finding a stable mate because she consistently pursued the wrong, emotionally unavailable men who reminded her of her cheating father.

Happy birthday, Carlton! And we hope you celebrate many more!

Ciara Wilson relies on her 2 minor children, son Future Zahir, 5, and daughter Sienna Princess, 2, to choose the music she releases. "They're like my little A&Rs," she told guest host Justin Hartley during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

The 33-year-old part-time Seattle homemaker says she relies on the intuition of her minor children to tell her whether she has a chart-topping hit on her hands.

"They let me know if something is right or if it's not. And they are like 10 for 10 with their reaction. The way you kind of know, the songs have to have the ABC element," she said.

Ciara married Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in 2016 and they share daughter Sienna. Promiscuous rapper Future Hendrix, 35, fathered her son Future Zahir.

All parents believe their children are geniuses with above average intelligence, and Ciara is no exception.

"So when they hear a song, and they can sing it back within the next few hours or right after hearing it, you know you're onto something right. And that's how they were with songs like Level Up."

Ciara, a native of Austin, Texas who graduated from Riverdale High School in Atlanta, is best known for her chart-topping hit "Goodies" from her 2004 debut album of the same title.

Her debut album also spawned the hit singles "1, 2 Step", "Oh" and "And I".

In 2006, Ciara's 2nd studio album Ciara: The Evolution spawned the hit singles "Get Up", "Promise", "Like a Boy" and "Can't Leave 'em Alone".

But she hasn't had much chart success since then. That's why she is fortunate to have her children help her choose new music.

Ciara is sure her kids get their musical intuition from her. "I graduated when I was 17 years old and I was on camera going, 'I see myself having a No. 1 song on the Billboard chart and da da da,' and I was declaring what I foresaw happening or what I believed could happen."

She recalled hearing "Goodies" on the radio for the first time when she was in a fast food restaurant in Atlanta.

"My dream came true in every way I could have imagined and more."

Rapper Future is accused of fathering his seventh child - according to a paternity suit filed by a Texas woman who claims the rap star fathered her son, born in July.

According to court papers obtained by TMZ, Cindy Renae Parker is alleging the randy rapper fathered her three-month-old son, Legend Ary Wilburn.

Cindy told the court she made repeated attempts to serve the rapper with papers, but he managed to evade her. Sources claim Future agreed to take a paternity test but he stopped responding to his alleged baby mama when it came time to take the test.

Insiders tell TMZ Cindy just wants to resolve the issue amicably and privately - outside of court, but she had no other choice but to take the promiscuous rapper to court.

Future, real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, is no stranger to paternity suits. 2 months ago the 35-year-old Scorpio was served with similar papers by a Florida woman, Eliza Seraphin, who claims he fathered her six-month-old daughter.

Meanwhile, Future currently has five other children by as many women, including singer Ciara (pictured with Future in 2013); Jessica Smith, Brittni Mealy, India J, and Joie Chavis.

Rumor has it that industry volley ball, Lori Harvey, is anxious to get to know Future better after trolling the blogs with rap mogul, Sean "Puffy" Combs.

Lori was spotted dining at Nobu restaurant in Malibu on Sunday - around the same time Future was there.

Hours later, Lori, 22, rolled her Mercedes wagon after hitting another car. She was cited by Beverly Hills police for a hit and run and delay in reporting an accident.
