In order to stand out, sometimes you have to fall back. Though these artists became known in their own right, initially they stood in the background providing background vocals for major artists. Let’s see who we’re talking about.

    Um…Mariah girl, u DEFINITELY needed that back up singer to save your life with that performance. Don’t hate….

  • randomtandem

    I mainly remember Faith singing back up on Usher’s first album

    • Ms.Brilly

      I didn’t have Usher’s first album, lol. I remember first hearing Faith on the “My Life” album.

      • randomtandem

        Usher’s first and second albums were his best in my opinion.

      • Chevonne22

        Yeah, “My Way” was good, but it was too short. It only had 10 songs, but it had some great vids!

    • Chevonne22

      Faith wrote most of Usher’s first album.

      • randomtandem

        She needs to write him another one cuz that was his best lol

        • Chevonne22

          Yeah, I think his first one and “Confessions” gave is his best. He was so cute singing “Just Call Me a Mack”.

          • randomtandem

            Oddly, I didnt like “Confessions” my faves were the first album and “My Way”

            yes I loved him when he sang “Call Me A Mack” so cute in his yellow jacket lmao

    BTW- Kelly Price didn’t just lend background vocals on “Heartbreak Hotel,” she and Faith Evans were actually featured on the song with Whitney.
