At just 19 years old, she won Star Search, which skyrocketed her to fame and landed her a deal with Atlantic Records. It was all too much, too fast.
Hart struggled to cope with fame as her mental illness and childhood trauma led to drug and alcohol addiction and nearly derailed her career.
Now, five years sober, with a new album, and a positive outlook on life, Hart shares her story of redemption.
