Previously regarded as one of the premiere backup singers in the music business, Kelly Price solidified her status as a star in her own right with the release of her first solo album in 1998. That album topped the R&B charts on the strength of its debut single, which soared to #1 with no video, which is still a record standing today. Since her debut album, she has continued to be recognized as a major player within the R&B genre, writing for and collaborating with celebrated performers like George Michael, Jay-Z, R.Kelly, The Isley Brothers, and The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.
Not only recognized as a singer, she has also been featured as an actress in several productions from theater to the big screen. The multi-talented artist is slated to release a new record of all new tunes sometime early next year, so fans can expect alot from the diva in the coming months.
Currently, the singer is on the Ultimate Sounds of R&B Tour with Carl Thomas, Dru Hill, and Shirley Murdock. Her latest show was exclusively snapped up by our resident photographer A.Neff King. To find out when Price is coming to a town near you, check your local listings.
