By the age of four, she found her first adoring audience — in her church. By 15, she was sneaking away from home to learn how to record and mix music. Three years after that, Faith was a college dropout, a songwriter, a single mother and the survivor of a brutal and abusive relationship.

By 24, she was a successful singer ... and a widow. Faith Evans is telling all in her memoir, Keep The Faith, starting with the death of her estranged husband, rapper The Notorious B.I.G.
