Grammy-nominated singer Keyshia Cole is ready to tell her story.
Keyshia Cole will executive produce and make her acting debut, playing herself, in a new Lifetime biopic, Keyshia Cole: This is My Story.
The documentary will follow her early days in Oakland honing her musical talents to her rise to a multi-platinum selling recording artist and television personality. The biopic will also touch on her complicated yet warmhearted relationship with her mother Frankie Lons played by Debbi Morgan (All My Children).
Premiering Saturday, June 24 as part of Lifetime’s celebration of Black Music Month, Keyshia Cole: This is My Story will feature a new song recorded by Cole titled “Forever is a Thing”.
Cole shared in a press release, “This is a story of a daughter’s love for her mother and although my heart remains broken from her untimely passing I am honored to be sharing it with the world,” said Cole.
She added, “playing the role of myself was a unique opportunity to re-live special moments in my life that also gave me the chance to process her loss in ways I did not expect. I miss her every day and even though she is not here, her presence was felt throughout this film. Mom, I love you.”
Keyshia Cole: This is My Story is a story of childhood trauma, tragedy, complexity of love and overcoming obstacles to become the best version of oneself. The movie is dedicated in honor and memory of Frankie.
