Meiko grew up in Roberta, Georgia, and her biggest influence was her dad. He played guitar and sang to her ever since she was a baby. His music was the only thing she ever listened to as a kid. And whoever bought her that Mariah Carey tape 'Emotions' did her a huge favor -- she would practice singing it every day. She owes her lucky ear to her dad and that tape!
