Kelly Price's powerful voice was often featured on tracks of superstars including Diddy, Notorious B.I.G, and Ronald Isley, but she was often not seen in their videos. She's admitted in recent interviews that her weight was a challenge when it came to being seen---not just heard--- in the industry. Price's weight has fluxuated throughout her career, with her having been size 12 to size 18. In an interview on The Wendy Williams Show, Price said she was motivated to make a change after witnessing family illness and death, and today she maintains healthy eating habits and regular exercise.
