She released her first and critically acclaimed album, Miracle, in 1996. The album was produced by Randy Jackson of American Idol. She has also collaborated with Narada Michael Walden & Diane Warren the top Pop Record producers.

She also worked with Tupac Shakur on his hit single, “Me against the World”, which was featured on the Bad Boys movie soundtrack and his album of the same name. She had to bury her fiancé, music producer Kip Collins in 2007 who died in a motorcycle crash before moving to South Africa in 2008 where she was rumoured to have been in a relationship with South African musician Ishmael of the group Jozi.

She was diagnosed with cervical cancer & was responding to treatment while living here but after 2 years the cancer returned with vengeance, she regretfully had to leave South Africa, the place she called home for three years and return to her family and friends in the United States.

She died last night after losing her close to 5 year battle with cancer on the eve of the 4th anniversary of the death of Pop legend Michael Jackson.
