Newcomer Kia Ayers is a talented and beautiful rhythm and blues singer who is proud to call the mountain state home. Her roots are in the capital city of Charleston and she began her journey into music at the young age of 6; singing in church or various plays in which she’s been a part of. It didn’t take long for folks to recognize her talent which led Kia to believe that, not only did she LOVE singing, but she was actually quite good at it.
Her passion for soulful music runs deep and you can feel it in your bones when she belts out a glorious harmony. At just 10, she and her family began recording YouTube videos and searching for talent agents in hopes that she could share her gift with the world. After being chosen by ARTS scouting agency at age 12, Kia recorded her first CD and even performed at a showcase for Television and music executives in Orlando, Florida. She also placed top 10 nationally in a Build-a-Bear singing competition.
Kia’s sound is a blend of R&B and pop that will genuinely send shivers down your spine. Crediting artists from Aretha Franklin to Alicia Keys as her inspiration and influence, Kia hopes to one day have the same impact on other small town girls like her. Though she hasn’t recorded anything in some time, she is currently back at it (while also pursuing a degree in nursing) and will have some new material to release in 2019.
