Keyshia was even asked to write a hook for his upcoming project the night he died in 1996. Regardless, she found her fame with her debut album, The Way It Is, eight years later, which was certified platinum, and went on to release two more platinum records before taking a two-year hiatus. Her hit singles include "Let It Go," "I Remember," and "Heaven Sent." Cole's even made a few appearances on reality TV, namely her show Family First, which premiered this fall.
