This is kind of related but I didn't find out Mariah Carey was half black until I was in high school. I always thought she was white or of mexican/latin decent.

Sort of unrelated but when I first heard Amy Winehouse and Adele I thought for sure they were black. LOL

I remember reading Carly Simon was 1/4 Black. Who really knows.

Not a singer: but I believe Peter Ustinov's grandfather was half Russian, and half African as well - making him 1/8th Black.
