In this note, we consider a generalized Fibonacci sequence {$q_n$}. Then give a connection between the sequence {$q_n$} and the Chebyshev polynomials of the second kind $U_n(x)$. With the aid of factorization of Chebyshev polynomials of the second kind $U_n(x)$, we derive the complex factorizations of the sequence {$q_n$}.
