    Franklin was born in Iowa, raised in Fresno and Los Angeles. Growing up, she performed in various church choirs and in off Broadway musicals. In addition to performing, Franklin regularly mentored under privileged girls at Penny Lane, one of the world's largest group homes in Los Angeles, in her spare time—something that she reportedly continues to do this day. In 1999, Franklin was hired to be an extra in the music video for Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills." It was there that she became acquainted with group members Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé Knowles. At the time she was in a fledgling singing group called Jane Doe, which was in the process of disbanding. In December, Matthew Knowles summonsed she and Michelle Williams to join the Destiny's Child—replacing previous group members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson. The two were introduced in February 2000, via the music video for "Say My Name." Franklin toured and performed with the group, and also appeared in the music video for "Jumpin' Jumpin'." Frankin contributed backing vocals to the remixes of "Jumpin' Jumpin'," "Independent Women Part I" (which were later removed before the songs release), and "Dance With Me." In July, after a five month stint with Destiny's Child, Franklin was dismissed from the group; learning of her firing from an MTV news report. Shortly thereafter, group member Beyoncé Knowles stated in an interview that Farrah had missed three major dates and expressed a disinterest in continuing on with the group, leaving them with no other choice but to terminate her. Franklin's rebuttal was that while in the group, she and Williams had been routinely mistreated by its management, but that the decision to leave was not hers.
    After her dismissal from Destiny's Child, Farrah forged ahead with a solo career—focusing heavily on acting. She later won a "Best Supporting Actress" award from the Independent Film Awards for her work on the a film The Brewster Project. Recently, Farrah has finished shooting an independent thriller film called Eyes of Darkness, which also features rapper Jayo Felony. Before joining Destiny's Child, Franklin also made an appearance in the 1999 feature film, Trippin. Aside from film work, Franklin is said to be continuing her career as a recording artist, and is reportedly working on an album. She has also been featured in music videos by Mr. Cheeks and R.L. Huggar. It is rumored that she's engaged to NBA Star Ron Artest.
