Faith Evans on the 1st Season of ‘R&B Divas’ and Her First Big Break (Watch)

*Faith Evans is the definition of an R&B Diva!

The sultry singer has a soft but raspy voice that put her on the map since the days of Bad Boy.

EURweb associate CNikky caught up with Faith on the red carpet at RNB Live in Hollywood not too long ago. Ms. Evans had just left a Lakers/Clippers game and decided to have a girls night out and support up and coming R&B talent. She dished on the lessons she learned about herself and her friends during the 1st season of “R&B Divas,” the Essence Music Festival experience, and how she got her start singing in the choir.

“R&B Divas” featuring Faith Evans, Syleena Johnson, Nicci Gilbert, KeKe Wyatt and Monifah had some of the highest ratings TV One has ever experienced.  They addressed domestic violence, homosexuality, self esteem, conflict among women and finding your true passion with class and dignity.  Faith was an Executive Producer along with Nicci Gilbert.  Great job ladies.

Inside the event, Faith went up on stage to thank everyone for supporting the show show and reminded the audience to buy the album, “Faith Evans-R&B Divas” (in stores now). Of course the crowd went crazy when they spotted Ms. Evans, she didn’t sing, but her presence was enough to inspire all the R&B singers with dreams of becoming an icon like Faith.
