Currently Kori is writing and producing her next CD with Jeff Hendrick.
In a very short time Kori has built an impressive list of achievements;

In a couple of competitions she stood out so much that the Media had pulled her out of the lineups to do Editorials & Television Interviews.
Kori has also had the opportunity to open up for Ice- T, Young Mc, Patricia Conroy, Tamia., The Osmond Boys, & Trooper.
She has had the privilege to be invited up on stage during concert settings by Lee Arron, Trooper, Jeanette Brantley, Boys II Men & Alfie Zapacosta, and Michael Buble.
