Hi Kelly, please tell us a little about you?
I’m a POP/ R&B singer from Atlanta Ga. I’m a very bubbly person , I love to sing songs and I love telling stories through songs.
Describe your sound in 3 words?
Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?
My grandmother influenced me to make music . As far as musicians who inspire me… I grew up loving Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Ashanti & Selena. I chose to make music because I love the way music makes me feel!!!
Do you play any instrument?
I used to play the violin in middle school.
Do you ever get nervous?
Yes!!!! But when I do I get out of it the more I get into whatever i’m doing.
Tell us about your new single “I Remember?”
I Remember is a song produced by 7 Aurelius. It’s an amazing song. When I think about the song I think about empowerment to not go back but its move forward!! It’s like super bittersweet!
How was working with Grammy award winning producer 7 Aurelius?
It was so cool!!! So I totally grew up listening to alot of his songs he produced on the radio!!! So it was super exciting. The song is a whole vibe!!!

When people say they can relate to the song!!! Or that the song touched them!! Because music is the best way to connect to people in my opinion!!
What book should every entrepreneur read?
What advice would you give to your younger self and why? I would tell my younger self girllllll!!! This is your life!!! Don’t overthink everything . Just keep singing its all going to fall into place in God’s timing. And don’t let what the other kids have to say affect what you know is in your heart.
How would your best friend describe you?
Bubbly, Silly, and Driven, Pure hearted.
If you are a book, what would be the title of the book and why?
Driven by the music. I would name it that because my life has always been centered around music. My grandma was always singing gospel songs and my grandpa was always playing temptations old soul music, and I gravitated to music no matter where it’s coming from. Music has driven me. My love for it and getting back to how it makes me feel each time. My love for music is what drives me and every decision I make in my life. It has to have my co-star music in it.
