During the conversation, which occurred during "Oprah Winfrey's 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Tour," Tracee recalled:

“Her face was covered in tears. And she said, ‘Finally.’”

The Patter Beauty founder added that she always avoided singing in public as she didn't want to go through the pain of being compared to her mother.
