Reel to Reel: KEYSHIA COLE: THIS IS MY STORY

Ahead of the official premiere on Lifetime, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to host a special screening of the new film KEYSHIA COLE: THIS IS MY STORY, followed by a post-screening conversation with Keyshia Cole, who Executive Produces and stars in the film. The conversation will be moderated by Vibe’s Mya Abraham. 

Multiple GRAMMY Award nominee Keyshia Cole (Keyshia Cole:The Way It Is) will executive produce and make her acting debut, playing herself, in this new Lifetime biopic that follows her early days in Oakland honing her musical talents to her rise to a multi-platinum selling recording artist and television personality, to her complicated yet warmhearted relationship with her mother Frankie Lons played by Debbi Morgan (All My Children). Premiering Saturday, June 24 as part of Lifetime’s celebration of Black Music Month at 8p/7c, Keyshia Cole: This is My Story is directed by D’Angela Proctor (Line Sisters) and Manu Boyer (Girl in the Basement) and features a new song recorded by the singer/songwriter titled Forever is a Thing. Ron Fair, Keyshia Cole’s longstanding A&R and music collaborator supervised the music and GRAMMY Award winner Warryn Campbell composed the original score.

Born in Oakland, California, Keyshia Cole was raised in a single parent household by her adoring mother Frankie (Morgan) but at the age of two, Keyshia was placed into foster care due to Frankie’s struggle with substance abuse. Keyshia was then adopted by her foster parents, Leon (Joseph C. Phillips) and Yvonne Coles (Tonia Jackson) and as a teen, Keyshia traveled to Los Angeles multiple times to pursue her dreams of becoming a singer, even providing background vocals for MC Hammer. Her path into a music career put her at odds with Leon and Yvonne, who kicked her out when she didn’t follow their rules. Left to fend for herself, Keyshia’s voice saved her from her nomadic lifestyle and she eventually returned to Los Angeles where at the age of 21, she was signed to A&M Records by GRAMMY award nominated producer and music executive Ron Fair. Keyshia went on to become a multiple-award winning, chart-topping artist who fused R&B and Hip Hop. As her star began to rise, Keyshia was still faced with traumas of not knowing who her biological father was but found family again when she was reunited with Frankie and sisters Neffe (Cindi Davis) and Elite (Brittney Level). Despite the success of her music and hit television shows following her life as an artist, mother, wife and daughter, Keyshia struggled to keep Frankie in rehab and tragically, her worst fear became a reality when she lost her to an accidental opioid overdose in 2021 on Frankie’s 61st birthday. Keyshia Cole: This is My Story is a story of childhood trauma, tragedy, complexity of love and overcoming obstacles to become the best version of oneself. The movie is dedicated in honor and memory of Frankie.

Keyshia Cole: This is My Story is produced for Lifetime by Swirl Films and Big Dreams. Executive producers are Eric Tomosunas, Leslie Greif, D’Angela Proctor and Keyshia Cole. Co-Executive Producer is Ron Fair. D’Angela Proctor and Manu Boyer direct from a script written by Angelica Cheri.
