In 1947 her family relocated to Chicago. While growing up on Chicago's south side Hunt discovered her musical talent. Living in that part of Chicago was not easy; recalls Geraldine. "On the weekends, we had to sleep on the floor, gangs were shooting through the house; I had been beaten up at gunpoint once, It was rough.
We were living below middle class." Despite the bleak living conditions of her childhood, there were bright spots also. A notable time in her life was her years at Hyde Park High School.
