Kelly Price Tickets
Kelly Price describes herself as a writer first, but there's no doubt that her smooth vocals and powerful voice are the true, natural gift that comes from her soul. Her church upbringing and desire to share her voice with the world are what make her the modern day crooner and R&B powerhouse she is today.
Price will be hitting the road with heavy hitters such as Slick Rick and Keith Sweat in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at various venues before appearing at the Essence Music Festival. Price will join Jon B at the Indigo at O2 in Greenwich, UK, later this year.
Price grew up in Queens surrounded by gospel and church music. Her grandfather, Jerome Norma, is bishop and pastor of the Full Gospel Mission Church of God and her mother, Claudia, was the former musical director of the church. When she started singing in the church at the age of six, she was quickly given the nickname, "Little Mahalia Jackson".
Price's first love will always be the church and gospel music, but her transition to R&B was a natural fit for her voice. She has worked behind and alongside some of music's biggest stars: Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, The Notorious B.I.G. and R. Kelly. In one of the most bittersweet moments of her career, she performed with Whitney Houston in what would turn out to be Houston's last public performance at a pre-Grammy party on February 9, 2012.
Price scored her first big break singing backup for George Michael in New York City during his 1992 tour. Eventually she was hired to perform at the Grammy Awards and, as the legend goes, was singing in a hall there during a meal break when Mariah Carey heard Price sing and introduced her to Carey's then-husband, Tommy Motolla, CEO at Sony Music Entertainment/Columbia Records. Several more backup jobs followed on hits such as Mariah Carey's "Fantasy", The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Mo Money Mo Problems" and Whitney Houston's "Heartbreak Hotel". In 1998, she finally took centre stage when she released her debut album, Soul of a Woman.
Price's first song to break through was the hit single, "Friend of Mine." Price followed up her 1998 debt album, Soul of a Woman, with Mirror Mirror in 2000 through the Def Soul division of Def Jam Records. That album spawned the hit "You Should've Told Me" and the 1986 Shirley Murdock cover of "As We Lay". The decade saw Price create a Christmas album and a live gospel album, and record the song "Why?" for the Why Did I Get Married? film soundtrack. Price continues to work on new material and tour all over the world.
Kelly Price is a powerhouse of a performer and her shows reflect both her gospel roots and her R&B soul. Price has the kind of voice that you can feel vibrating from head to toe. Her songs about love and heartbreak will have you swaying back and forth, while her contemporary hits will have you dancing in the aisles. No matter what the song is about, she connects with everyone lucky enough to have Kelly Price tickets through her words and voice to bring them to their feet, and then to their knees."
