Who is her mother Faith Evans?

Faith Renee Evans was born in Lakeland, Florida USA on 10 June 1973 – her zodiac sign is Gemini, and she holds American nationality. She gained recognition after she married the late American rapper The Notorious B. I. G. in 1994, and after he had helped Faith with her career in the music industry, she also became popular for her music.

Faith was raised in Lakeland as an only child, solely by her African-American mother Helene Evans who was a professional singer; Faith’s father Richard Swain was also a musician, but left the family before Faith was born. When Faith was around six months old, her mother left her to be raised by her cousins Orvelt Kennedy and Johnnie Mae, who fostered over 100 children by that time.

She was five years old when her mother succeeded in the music industry and wanted to take Faith to live with her, however, because Faith liked her cousins and wanted to stay with them, Helene instead moved next door.

She was only two years old when she began singing at church, and during the time she spent attending University High School, she was a member of several jazz bands. She was encouraged by her mother to sing at festivals, as well as to enter various contests, but because Faith was mostly interested in working on her education, upon matriculating in 1991, she enrolled at Fordham University. She launched her career as a singer in the same year, but because she gave birth to Chyna in 1993, Faith chose to drop out of college and focus on raising her.

She was noticed by the musician Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs only a couple of months after Chyna was born, and after having signed a contract with Bad Boy Records, Faith released her self-titled debut album on 29 August 1995; it has since sold more than 1.5 million copies, and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Faith was already married to The Notorious B. I. G. at that time, but the marriage ended when he was murdered on 9 March 1997.

She married her second husband – Todd Russaw, an American record executive – in 1998, and gave birth to their son Joshua on 10 June of the same year; their second son Ryder Evan Russaw followed on 22 March 2007.

In October 1998, Faith released her second album “Keep the Faith”, and then the albums “Faithfully” in 2001, “The First Lady” on 5 April 2005, and “Something About Faith” on 5 October 2010. She divorced Todd in 2011.

In 2012, she was cast to star in the reality show “R&B Divas: Atlanta”, and on 24 November 2014, Faith released her new album “Incomparable”. In 2018, she married the American DJ and record producer Steven Aaron ‘Stevie J.’ Jordan, but in May 2020, she was arrested on domestic violence charges; Stevie later dropped the charges.

Faith is also an actress, and has appeared in a couple of popular movies and TV series, such as the 2000 action movie “Turn It Up”, the 2003 musical comedy film “The Fighting Temptations” and the 2004 comedy series “Half & Half”.

She’s an author too, having published her autobiography “Keep the Faith: A Memoir” on 29 August 2008.
