Khadia Releases Latest Compilation
Khadia, born in Washington, DC but lives in Los Angeles, CA, is a spark of life for this generation! Her refreshing and explosive persona combined with her electrifying performance will captivate millions. Very rarely are we fortunate enough to find an artist that successfully captures the essence of so many areas of popular music and molds them into her own.
At the tender age of 22, Khadia has already been afforded many opportunities such as performing around the world singing background vocals for Grammy Award winning recording artist, Mya, but now she is ready for her moment in the spotlight. She has performed at venues such as the historic Bellagio Hotel and Casino, the beautiful Luxor resort and the magnificent O2 Arena in London. She has shared the stage with the legendary Run DMC and sang back-up for pop icon Prince at the legendary Indigo nightclub in London. Khadia draws influences from artists like Paramore, Pink, Tina Turner, Janet Jackson and many more.
Khadia’s goal is to touch lives all across the world through her music and infectious personality. “I’ve been honing my skills, singing in Spanish, in order to expand my horizons even more,” she says. “‘No Limitations’ is my motto!”
Khadia stops at nothing to thoroughly entertain her audience: “I want my music to inspire and motivate my listeners to stop at nothing until their reality catches up to their dreams!”
Her future plans are to start an organization that supports emotionally disturbed children mentally, spiritually and financially. She has already taken steps towards completing this mission, having sung for churches in Soweto, South Africa, helping build libraries and donating clothes and toys to several orphanages. She also takes great pride in her local community, having performed for local senior nursing homes, DC Toys for Tots events during the holidays, singing the national anthem for Negro Baseball League Hall of Fame events and much more.
She has recently teamed up with StarMakers Productions and has completed her album. Khadia’s music is daring and risky because she is not afraid to push the envelope. She has songs like, “My Boss is a Bitch”, “Bad Girl”, “Cut You Off” and “Monster”, which will draw the attention of future fans from all over the world. She is a pop/alternative artist with an Urban edge and captures it all effortlessly. She can not only sing, but she is a writer, a dancer, model, an amazing actress and consummate performer. StarMakers goal is to expose Khadia and her unique flair to the world and change lives in a way that only a select few have been able to do, not only through music but through other forms of media--they are currently constructing her live show, as well as creating a reality show centered around her journey as an international pop artist. Rarely does someone come along with not only the vast skillset and background that Khadia has, but also the fresh rejuvenating persona to appeal to millions around the world. Khadia will bring you to life !!
