Bringing a stripped down, serene acoustic version of her show to us in the garden.
Growing up in the shadows of Chicago, Kingsley was raised to the rhythms of house music. The third eldest daughter of eight, she demonstrated a strong desire to perform and sing from an early age. She sang before she could talk, belting out Disney tunes and performing for family and friends. She joined the choir when she was 8 and taught herself to play guitar and piano. At age 10 she started a band. Inspired by pop music she began writing and producing her own songs.
It seemed she was destined for the stage, but life had other plans. While Kingsley was dreaming of the pop charts, she was also breaking school records in High Jump – track and field. Offered a sports scholarship she went off to college. To keep her love of music alive she took vocal performance classes, but sports, with its relentless demand for success, threatened her dream.
Then as fate would have it, in her third year of college, Kingsley was diagnosed with a competitive heart condition that ended her track and field days forever. Undeterred, and secretly relieved, she was finally free to devote her full attention towards her true passion.
She started an all-female a Cappella group, and developed skills in beat boxing and arranging, graduating with a degree in Vocal Performance and Business Administration.
Kingsley’s unique and unforgettable voice will warm you up and melt you down. Her presence is captivating and overwhelming, she sings only on her personal experiences of life, love, and her journey of becoming Kingsley. Kingsley doesn’t just stick with one genre, her vocal can do anything – her song are influenced by pop to R&B and anything in between! Kingsley has been making strong headway with opening up for acts like Elise Trouw and SG Lewis!
