Hi, I'm Kristen Henry King and I thank you for visiting my profile.
I'm originally a native from New Orleans and am a first generation American. My parents are both from 3rd world countries and came to America for a better life. And as much as they would have loved for me to be a Doctor or a Lawyer, it was because of them, I was able to start my love affair with music at the age of 7.
I was obsessed with the show Star Search and begged my parents to be on the show. So after years of waiting AND begging—at 12 years old, my mom finally gave in. She submitted me and I got accepted. A week before I was to go on, the show it got cancelled. I was devastated, but it only made my hunger to sing and perform grow stronger.
By 15 I was traveling the world as a member of an Elite 9 person madrigal choir. I was recognized as a lead vocalist in my hometown winning the Houston Young Artists' Program, and received a grant from the Houston Grand Opera for voice. I ended up getting a Music Talent Scholarship from NYU, where I earned a B.A. in Classical Vocal Performance. While in college I taught myself guitar, and worked New York City to death doing print, commercials, musical theater, AND becoming an Apollo legend! I toured as a back up singer to Chinese pop sensation Jane Zhang and since moving to LA I proceeded to book more commercials, print and multiple television spots.
Having grown up listening to oldies, I am most inspired by Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, and the Stylistics as well as elements of classical music. But I'm also influenced by artists that can take classic music and add a new and refreshing sound like, Adele, Bruno Mars, and of course, Michael Jackson.
Though I've spent most of my years singing opera, I really can sing anything from pop, rock and r&b all the way to Broadway and Jazz. My voice has been compared to Vanessa Williams, as well as a female version of Josh Groban. Peter Cohen, Senior Talent producer for "The Voice" and America's got Talent, recently gave me the biggest compliment of all--that I have amazing stage presence. And that's exactly what I will bring to your event! All while making sure to include the audience and deliver the needs of you, the client. Book me today! You won't be disappointed!!! XOXO
