Singer Kelly Price earns her PhD


The “Soul of a Woman” singer graduated as valedictorian with a doctorate degree in philosophy on Saturday

Supporting Dr Kelly C Price at her graduation ceremony was her Soror, Dr Felicia Shaw, and her children.

Price’s children wrote a heartfelt letter praising their mother, and she took to Instagram to share it, along with an image: “We’re so proud of the person you’ve become Mom! You endure a lot that we have and haven’t witnessed with our own eyes as your kids. This is just the beginning for you. We love you through it all. We can officially call you Dr. Mom! #ProudKids.”


It’s definitely been a great year for Price. She recently released her new single Everytime (Grateful), which will be used on the soundtrack for US channel Bounce TV’s dramatic new series Saints & Sinners. In addition, the singer just announced that she’s been cast in a movie.

She posted on Facebook: “Just got a call back from the casting director for a movie I read for. I GOT THE PART!!! ‪#‎AwesomeGod‬ ‪#‎Grateful‬ ‪#‎NewBeginnings‬ ‪#‎ULTRALIGHTBEAM‬. My life is a product of the performed word of God! ‪#‎Isaiah55and11‬”
