Destined to be a star
Faith Evans was born to Helene Evans and Richard Swain in 1973. As a child growing up, the artist discovered her vocal talent when she started singing in church. Faith Evans soon caught the attention of the congregation of the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Newark when she performed The 5th Dimension’s track, Let The Sunshine In.
She then enrolled herself in University High School where she sang with numerous Jazz Bands and also began to play music at different festivals, pageants and contests. After being praised by people for her voice, she decided to move to Los Angeles and became a backup vocalist for the singer, AL B. Sure! She was soon noticed by the musician, Sean Combs, also known as Puff Daddy, who later signed her to his record label, Bad Boy Entertainment in 1994.
Once Faith Evans became a part of Bad Boy Entertainment, she was asked to deliver backing vocals for Mary J. Blige’s album, ‘My Life.’ She also helped Usher with his self-titled debut record.

In 1996, Faith Evans separated from The Notorious B.I.G which got her involved in the East Coast – West Coast rivalry which dominated the hip-hop music. A year later, the legendary rapper, Christopher Wallace was murdered and Faith teamed up with Combs and 112 to record a tribute song for him titled, I’ll Be Missing You which was released the same year.
