In the Beginning, There was Faith Hill
She goes by the stage name ‘Faith Hill,’ but the country songstress was born Audrey Faith Hill on September 21, 1967, in Ridgeland, Mississippi. Faith Hill received her name from adopted parents Edna and Ted Perry, who raised her as their own along with their two natural born sons. Faith Hill had a typical Christian upbringing, and she began singing publicly at the age of seven. But it wasn’t until she saw Elvis on stage in 1976 that her intrigue for music grew to new heights. By the time Faith Hill had reached her teen years, she’d sung in many church events and made a name for herself as one of the most talented singers in her small town. Being an inspiration herself, teenager Faith Hill would not only sing in churches, but would also sing in prisons to prisoners. Her song choices were touching and included “Amazing Grace”.
Making it Big in Country Music
It was while at her workplace that a co-worker heard her singing and proceeded to help Faith Hill develop her first demo to pursue country music. She was singing at one of her regular places called the Bluebird Cafe, when music executive Bob Saporiti of Warner Bros Records being in the audience took notice of her talents. Faith Hill signed with Warner Bros Records, and though she endured a divorce in the process, her future became what Hollywood fairy-tales are made of. The rest has been history in the remarkable life of Faith Hill.
Take Me As I Am
Faith Hill had two previous albums released before the national success of the 1998 album “Faith” was welcomed into homes everywhere.
