Price is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter who has worked with household names like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and R.Kelly. In the past two years she has dealt with the 2014 death of her sister and a divorce from her husband of 23 years.
Now that she is preparing to release a new album, a show called “Too Fat For Fame,” and starring in the play “For Colored Girls,” Price is reflecting on the influence her grandmother has had on her faith that has propelled her career.
“I look at her and her strength has always been amazing. To be born in the time she was born in and pursue a college education,” she told Essence magazine. “And everyone in my family who is musical is musical because of her…she was my earliest influence with everything, whether it’s my faith in God or music.”
Before rising to fame, Price has had to overcome a number of obstacles in life including homelessness and molestation. When previously speaking to The Christian Post, Price said she believed God allowed her to use her past pain as a testimony in her career.
