Keyshia Cole is executive producing and making her acting debut by playing herself in the upcoming Lifetime biopic, Keyshia Cole: This is My Story. The musical feature also stars Debbi Morgan as Cole’s mother, Frankie and Alfred E. Rutherford as Manny Halley.

The film, titled Keyshia Cole: This Is My Story, will provide an intimate glimpse into the artist’s life, from her humble beginnings in Oakland, California, where she first honed her musical talents, to her rise to becoming a multi-platinum selling recording artist and television personality.

The film will also delve into the complexities of Cole’s relationship with her mother, Frankie Lons (Morgan). The story promises to be both heartwarming and heart-wrenching, as it follows Cole’s journey to becoming the successful artist she is today.

“This is a story of a daughter’s love for her mother and although my heart remains broken from her untimely passing I am honored to be sharing it with the world,” said Cole. “Playing the role of myself was a unique opportunity to re-live special moments in my life that also gave me the chance to process her loss in ways I did not expect. I miss her every day and even though she is not here, her presence was felt throughout this film. Mom, I love you.”

Keyshia Cole: This Is My Story is directed by D’Angela Proctor, known for Line Sisters, and Manu Boyer, who directed Girl in the Basement. In addition to the film’s compelling storyline, it will feature a new song by the singer/songwriter titled “Forever is a Thing.” Ron Fair, Cole’s longtime A&R and music collaborator, supervised the music, and Grammy Award winner Warryn Campbell composed the original score.

The film is set to premiere on Lifetime on Saturday, June 24, at 8 pm/7c as part of the network’s celebration of Black Music Month.
