Keyshia Cole has been publicly searching for her biological dad for years now and the stress of it has bled from the confines of her inner emotions to her music, and more. On her hit BET reality show The Way It Is, the singer, at times, went on a search for her father but was often met with standstills when it came to actually finding conclusive paternity test results.
Check out her Instagram posting about her new dad below.
While in NYC I was overwhelmed with emotion, I explained while on stage at the Barclays, the situation I was faced with at that moment, which was, my father and I finding our way to each other, After 34 years.
