Born to an African American father (1928-) and a Portuguese American mother (1930-), Guy was raised in the affluent historic Collier Heights neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, where she attended the former Northside Performing Arts High School . Her mother's name is Jaye Rudolph, and her father, the Reverend William Guy, was pastor of the historic Friendship Baptist Church of Atlanta, which served as an early home to Spelman College She later studied dance at Alvin Ailey American Dance Center in New York City in 1981.

During the run of A Different World, she released her self-titled debut album in 1990.
