This Week's Milestone
Faith Hill was adopted as an infant and raised in Star, Mississippi. She began singing in public at 7 and was fortunate enough to see Elvis Presley in concert when she was 8. She performed at churches, then formed a band at 17. She quit college at 19 to move to Nashville, where her day jobs included selling T-shirts and working at McDonaldâ€™s and as a Music Row secretary. It was at the latter that a co-worker heard her singing to herself and urged her to sing demos. A label exec saw her singing at Nashvilleâ€™s Bluebird Cafe and signed her to a label deal.
