Imaani Saleem, known mononymously as Imaani, is an English singer who represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1998 in Birmingham with the song "Where Are You?".

Her track was a runaway winner with the British public and was selected to represent the UK in the "Song For Europe" pre-selection. At the final, she finished seven points behind the winner Dana International and as of 2015, the United Kingdom has never come so close to winning again.

After its success in the contest, "Where Are You" entered the UK Singles Chart in May 1998, peaking at #15. The track spent more than two months in the chart. Despite this success, her record label EMI decided to cancel the release of her follow-up single "You Got A Way" and parted company with Saleem.

In 2000, she supplied the lead vocals on Tru Faith & Dub Conspiracy's UK garage cover of Adina Howard's "Freak Like Me". "Freak Like Me" reached No. 12 on the UK Singles Chart. Saleem went on to record with the jazz-funk band, Incognito.

In 2006, she sang on a house track, "Bring Me Love", by the Copyright Project on Defected Records. The track received a limited release in the UK, but reached the Top 3 in the club chart.
