Mention the name of Faith Evans, and many might recall she was the wife of late New York rapper Notorious B.I.G. And whilst this is true, she’s also a singer and songwriter in her own way too.
Faith Evans was a backup vocalist for Al B. Sure and Christopher Williams before she forged her solo singing career.
Being a vocalist, Faith’s career took off after being signed under Puff Daddy’s label: Bad Boy Entertainment.
Under the label’s wing, the company helped her collaborate with artists such as Mary J. Blige and Carl Thomas.
Between 1995 and 2001, she had platinum certified studio albums titled Faith (1995), Keep the Faith (1998) and Faithfully (2001).
Releasing an album in 2005, The First Lady became the highest charting album of its time.
Faith’s vocal abilities have been described as ‘urban-edged honeyed soprano.’
And because she could hit a low note of C#3 to high soprano C#6.
Writer Craig Seymour from Washington Post called her voice “angelic yet hearty classical.”
On her album Keep The Faith, critics said that she gave a raw soloist performance on every single track.
Critics also went on to say she could easily be in the league of Tina Turner or Whitney Houston.
The long and awaited compilation album titled The King & I featured old songs and a few unpublished tunes by Biggie himself.
The album is similar to Natalie & Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable.
