Felicia comes from a musical family. Her dad has been touring with The Sugarhill Gang for as long as she can remember. She grew up playing piano and learning sheet music, even earning the nickname Felicia Keys around school. She gigged with her dad and uncle throughout high school and later obtained her degree in nursing while pursuing a solo career. She was diagnosed with cancer last June. After completing six rounds of chemo, Felicia feels this is her moment.
