Frankee was used to sing in her church choir and later she gained fame as a local entertainer. Before starting her singing career she took dance and voice lessons from a local institute. In the beginning she performed at local clubs and on different venues. As a high school student she earned insurance brokering scholarship to University of Tampa but she was interested in starting her music career so she left it after one year.
In 2004 she released her song F.U.R.B which proved a big hit and later her first album The Good, the Bad, the Ugly but unfortunately her album couldn’t get attention. In the summer 2004 she went on tours to promote her album and released her second single, “How You Do.”
In 2006 after the end of her first contract with Marro Records she signed with Big Management and started work on her second album. One single “Watch Me” from her second album has been released but it couldn’t make its place on music charts and Big Entertainment ended their deal with Frankee.
