The Unpredictable Pain

The unpredictable pain of losing you Although you were never mine Clearly just a moment in time Need to pause and then rewind Soak in the space stare deeply in your face Wish it never happened If I knew that this would happen The unpredictable pain of losing you Knocks me unconscious Leaving me breathless How can you be so reckless? Hard to believe that none of it was true Just a case of fear consuming you The unpredictable pain of losing you Yet I remain in deep thought of you Replaying the intimate interactions A connection deeper than physical attraction But fear lends itself to adverse reaction The greatest love infraction Now there's no us Just you Just Me Left with the unpredictable pain of losing you

Kay Soul Seasons

The 2nd Installment of Kay Soul Seasons was nothing short of amazing! In the days leading up to the event, I began to wonder if everything would fall into place. In true form, God came through and I watched as my vision unfolded better than I had imagined. In top vocal form, I took the mic and fell into a zone like I have never felt before. Each note seemed to fly out my mouth with crisp and clear precision. I watched the audience react favorably, many whom I had never seen before. I took a gamble filling the show with mostly original songs but the audience seemed engaged in each one as I shared with them my inspiration behind each song. By the end of the night I was on a high of a lifetime and I couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. I am continously surpised and amazed on this journey. I am doing things that I never imagined and on a level that I once only dreamed about. One of the attendees simple commented "the growth"! 3 days later and I am still so filled up with excitement! I know that it has not only been my dilligence to perfecting my craft but all the trials and tests that I have been through that have strengthened my voice, allowed me to develop a style all my own and be extremely comfortable in my own skin. It feels like I have waited my whole life to finally get to this place. I'm such a perfectionist but I finally understand that God has been preparing me for this time in my life all along. Even with all that being said....THE BEST IS YET TO COME! Stay tuned!!!!!

Growing Pains (A Poem) :-)

As I sit back contemplating these growing pains How nothing seems the same Yet still the passion remains insane Making artistic choices Contrary to political voices I choose to breath life into myself They say great risk leads to great reward So I'm betting it all on my accord Tempting distractions threaten to pull the chord But I rely on my own power lines Cause we living in desperate times Pretentious frenemies try to steal you blind From behind Then front in your front Meaningless words just changing the font But you can miss me with that Take that right back Cause actions speak louder I'll just quietly ReAct Step back and then Redact Subtract you and add new Nothing personal Just seeing through the rehearsal you Content with accepting that these growing pains Help me see that nothing stays the same Yet my passion remains insane

No. 1 Spot!

It's definitely a feel good Friday. I remember when I first heard about reverberation and decided to join what has become the top website for independent artists. At the time, I was ranked in the 600's of R&B artists locally and somewhere in the hemisphere when it came to national and global ranking. This morning (for the second day :-)) I am in the No. 1 spot locally, 20 nationally, and 26 globally in R&B/Soul artists. I just want to thank everyone who rocks with me and has encouraged me along the way. Quite frankly, I'm really just getting started! It's all about the process of the journey. Local charts today....BILLBOARD CHARTS TOMORROW!!! ‪#‎NoReservations‬! ‪#‎Staytuned‬ ‪#‎Dontgiveuponyourdreams‬ ‪#‎enjoytheprocess‬ Like

BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG STAGE

Just getting in from my performance at the Olympic Theater and I am feeling on top of the world. Serving as my biggest performance venue to date, it was amazing to be on a big stage. As I stared into the bright lights shining down on me, I felt a strong sensation in my spirit and I knew God was just showing me a glimpse of where I am headed on this musical journey. As I sang, I imagined that the audience was filled to capacity and it was up to me in that moment to leave it all on the stage. It's so amazing to me how much I have grown as an artist. Each performance becomes more effortless as I embrace my unique artistry. A young lady came up to me after the show and told me that she loved my performance and could really feel my words. She made my day. That is really what it's all about, being able to connect with people through my music. I am so humble and grateful for this time in my life. God continues to show me that if I just trust completely in Him, that every door shall be open. Tonight gave me more confidence as I continue to prepare for Kay Soul Seasons on October 4th. I'm loving this journey and I can't wait to see what's next!!!

GEORGIA LOVE TOUR 2014

The past 4 days have been amazing! From working with Platinum Selling industry producers Arkatech Beatz, to meeting musical legend Elis Hall, to attending and presenting at the Georgia Music Awards! It was a world wind of music, art, and entertainment and I loved every minute of it!!! I'm in awe of God right now because I know HE is the ultimate reason for all good things that have manifested in my life. As he continues to unfold the plan before me, I know that I am on the right path and I more focused than ever to follow my dreams like never before. It feels good to face my challenges and my fears head on while pushing thru the adversity that threatens to derail the vision. BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE BOUNDLESS!!! The Journey Continues....

New Music

What an awesome day for new music. From the moment I woke up, I felt the positive energy in the air. I instantly checked itunes and there I was ready for the world to purchase my new singles and embrace my artistry. What started out as a slow progression has become a steady and purposeful movement of self love, expression, growth, and strength. I'm so grateful for this time in my life. It feels good to be able to look back and see the positive changes that have taken place. I know that the path I have chosen is a challenging one but I am more than ready to face them head on. I've conquered so many of my past fears and it has helped me believe more in myself and what I have to offer not just as an artist, but as a woman, a mother, a sister, a friend....a human being! This new music is an offering up of myself to share with you my heart. I hope that you will receive it in kind!

Maya Angelou

The tears came instantly when I heard the news of the passing of Maya Angelou. As a young girl, Maya inspired me to find my own voice. Rest in heaven beautiful Queen. I wrote this one for you...

MAYA It's only fitting that I take this time to honor you -...The Queen As your words have helped many break through A generation of lost souls inspired by your truth You were an extraordinary force of God's creation Placed here to speak life to a struggling nation Yes it's only fitting that I take this time to honor you From the CAGED BIRD to the risen you Your voice a sweet melodic sound Prolific words moving in rhythmic time to the beat of your heart in sync with the needs of a desperate humanity Yes, it's only fitting that I take this time to honor you The loss of you leaves a void A sinking feeling I can't avoid Yet I know you would not want tears For the years of yourself that you gave to us You would want us to RISE Standing in the glow of your light We will remember you Yes, It's only fitting that I take this time to honor you Maya Angelou PHENOMENAL WOMAN That's you

Choose to BE...

I'm filled up with mixed emotions right now. I remember when I decided to fully commit to pursuing my music on a serious basis. The past 2 years have gone by so quickly it seems. I look up and it's 2014 and I am a nominated artist, fresh off the heels of a successful packed house show, and preparing to perform in another state as part of a local tour. All I can say is GOD IS AMAZING! The road hasn't been easy but it certainly has been worth it. I have overcome so many obstacles pushing myself to be brave through the fear of the unknown. With every turn God has guided me and I find myself on the cusp of Greatness!!! It's so true that what you put out in the atmosphere will certainly manifest itself. I'm honored and grateful to be in this space of vast growth. It helps me to stay focused. Each day I aim to be better than the last, not just in music but in life, as a woman, a mother, attorney, sister, friend, and artist. There can be no logic to following the desires of your heart. You must just be. The logic comes in when you decide what to be and how to be. I choose to be NOW. I choose to be BOLD. I choose to be BRAVE. I choose to be ME.

Thank you Soul Searchers for accepting me, flaws and all. This Journey is picking up steam and the story is being written as I go. Continue to Rock with me and I promise not to disappoint. Choose life today. BE...

Poetry~Love~Music

As the day of the event draws closer, I feel like an anxious little kid!!! I have envisioned this event in my mind for the past couple of years and now that it's a reality, it's all I think about. An opportunity to share my music in an intimate setting for my closest supporters, this moment is huge. I know that based on my "day job" many people are often surprised that I have this vast artistic side and more surprised once they hear me open my mouth! :-) Well I'm ready to knock their socks off!!! Rehearsing with the band has been like breathing clean air that you didn't know you needed until you experienced it. I know that it's no coincidence that my voice audition came before this show. Getting through that audition and pushing myself from within to be brave has boosted my confidence to levels that I wasn't sure I could reach. I have a great show lined up and I'm looking forward to pouring out my soul to everyone in attendance. I know that this event is only the beginning of many headlining performances. POETRY~LOVE~MUSIC is a coming out party and will be just a preview of the Greatness to come. I'm determined to be stellar at my craft and I will do the work to get there. Life throws us curve balls at times. Sometimes we get knocked down but we always have the power to get back up!!!!
