From asphalt tracks to digital tracks. That, believe it or not, is how LiV Warfield came to be one of the hottest soul divas on the music scene today—complete with a top-selling album executive produced by Prince. “I was actually running track and was a gymnist most of my life.  So I was 100 percent sure I’d be in the 1996 Olympics,” LiV, whose lastest projects is titled The Unexpected, tells Sundays host Joy Keys. “But that totally changed. I kept singing—away from my family, where they couldn’t hear. Then I moved away to Portland, Oregen, and followed my heart. I started singing at karaoke bars, then with hip hop bands.” And the rest is fast becoming musical history.
