Kim Hill: I Have My Happy

I love this so much:

In the mid-1990s, the singer and songwriter Kim Hill met a young rapper who suggested they start making music. That rapper’s name was, and his group was a rising Los Angeles underground hip-hop crew called The Black Eyed Peas.

The rest is history — or is it?

Hill found herself at a crossroads in 2000 and decided to quit the group and find her own voice, only to look on as The Black Eyed Peas reached global stardom with earworms like “I Gotta Feeling.” Having missed out on what every performer dreams of, does Hill regret her decision?

Not everything works out with a “bow” at the end:

But, she kept her integrity as an artist, as a professional… as a person—what more do we really get to keep at the end of the day?
