While music has always been her greatest passion, Felicia is also fascinated with medicine and helping people. She received her nursing degree while also pursuing a solo career. In June 2015 she was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer. While undergoing six rounds of chemotherapy and extensive abdominal surgery, Felicia wrote and recorded her EP, The Balancing Act. She shares, “This EP came to be as a way to cope while I was dealing with cancer. I wrote music to help me get through an extremely dark time. I put my heart and soul in it, completely writing and producing it with an all live instrumentation.” She is using her celebrity as a nationally recognized singer, most notably from The Voice, to bring awareness to NCAN and NET Cancer.
