Episode 65: Kudisan Kai

17Jul

Kudisan Kai is a busy singer/songwriter who toured as a back up singer with Elton John and Chaka Khan. She stops by the show to share all original music or songs that she has performed. Each of these peices are important milestones not only in her life, but in her career. She discusses everything from her first love who introduced her to rock music, what it was like growing up in a music-less home in Memphis, how she became a the youngest singer in a professional opera company, and the first song she wrote that Sir Elton John heard that gave her the confidence she needed to continue to pursue writing music.

Her Songs are titled: "Fade Into Oblivion," "If You Loved Me," "Beautiful," "Everlasting Love," and "Lovin' You at Howard University Jazz Ensemble."
 
This week we find ourselves in Chicago for Band Or Bar (try to see if you guess it correctly!) before we learn about Kudisan's First and Last Concert. Plus, she shares a secret about performing music for a living.
 
She has a new book out called Memoirs of A Backup Diva and an album that just came out called The Healing. Follow her on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to see her on a stage near you!
