Octavia was NOT born a guy. She is a tremendously talented women who was absolutely beautiful. She is the predecessor to Whitney and Mariah and was courted by a number of labels including SONY (CBS Records then), Chrysalis, EMI, Virgin and others before either of the two was ever signed. It is unfortunate that here career didn't take off, but you'll have to ask her why. "2 The Limit" was actually titled "It's Over Now" and was signed to be recorded by me first. At the time Octavia was the star of the off Broadway play, "Mama I Want to Sing", which led to the careers of a number of young ingenues including "Gina" from the "Martin Lawrence Show", Deatra Hicks and others.
