She was a headliner in 1999 on BET’s “Girls Night Out” alongside Monica, Faith Evans, Deborah Cox, and Shanice.
“Sing from the heart. I don’t care if it’s rock, country or whatever, those are the best records that come from the heart. It’s okay to go in the booth and just to freestyle.” —from a panel at the 2011 ASCAP Expo
