Kenya Placido attributes her initial flirtation with singing to the opportunity that she had, like many young vocalists, to singing in the church choir. Kenya has grown up from singing in the pulpit at church to belting her heart out amongst the likes of Jill Scott, Brian McKnight and the Black Eyed Peas, to name a few. Her angelic voice mesmerizes her fans and keeps them yearning for more.
Her skills have pushed her from behind the pulpit to singing backup for international stars. Clearly her drive and determination is paying off. Now her voice has propelled her from the back of the stage to shine, and we couldn’t be happier that her stage has expanded, especially since she has a love for the East Bay.
Although you can’t catch this vocalist at your next Sunday service, you will be able to buy her long awaited solo album in the near future! Whether she is pursuing her solo career, singing in association with famous artists, or getting international air play, this diva is the real deal. She has the full package, as she co-produces her own tracks, writes and arranges her songs, and dances. Kenya is currently working on recording her debut album entitled “Reflections”.
Currently Kenya is under Ruthless Alliance Management and is ASCAP certified. Kenya is well on her way to becoming a musical icon amongst the other industry greats
