Keyshia Cole

Her vocal stylings, passion and overall uniqueness have been compared to the likes of Mary J. Blige…..which ain’t a bad thing for the young and gifted, Ms. Keyshia Cole!


The twenty something year old, Oakland California native is determined to stay on top. Her multi-platinum album, “The Way It Is” (2005) was released when she was just 21 years old. That album spawned huge hits such as “Love”, “I should’ve cheated” and “I changed my mind”. She has worked with greats such as Kanye West to P. Diddy. Her voice expresses a sincerity and emotion that is not always heard in every singer. From her passion and depth, you can tell she’s been through many trials and tribulations in her life.


Coming from a troubled background, Keyshia is passionate about providing inspiration to young girls. This is evident in her successful, second season B.E.T reality show in which she allows us into her world on a daily basis. She states, “ I want to be an example for young people, especially growing up in the hood, because it’s already hard enough to not be focused, there’s a lot of challenges you have to go through to get what you want, especially if you feel like it belongs to you”. Spoken like a true survivor…….Keyshia Cole is the real deal!
