Well, Raye considered her mom a selfless person because she dedicated her whole life to serving without asking for the amount she deserved.

Regarding this, My 21st Century Blues singer said, “I know they get paid terribly, Free healthcare is something really beautiful that a lot of countries don’t have, so I just think we really have to protect our healthcare system.”

In several interviews, Raye has repeatedly mentioned that she comes from a musical family.

Her mother, Sarah Keen, and father, Paul Keen, were into music. In an interview with Stylist, she said, “I grew up in the church around my mum singing in the choir and my dad leading worship.”
