About Kimmy J Kearse

Kimmy J Kearse (Bio)

I guess you can say I have been singing for as long as I can remember my father, I was told sang street corner harmony with the fellas and my mother sang with a group in Pennsylvania called Freedoms Pride.  I remember watching her at festivals in front of 100's of people and saying one day I will be doing that too. I remember wearing a towel on my head and giving my Nanny (grandmother) her private show.   I would sing Chaka Khans’ Everlasting Love and Hollywood over and over again.  My Nanny, she would just sit there and smile and say how good I was.  I enjoyed singing as a teen with my brothers and sisters Kevin, Karmentrina and Keenan (Passed 04/07/07). We didn’t like all the practice time but it was nice singing and people loved it when my mother joined in.  It was a family affair. My mother introduced me to music and taught us all how to harmonize.  and I try to share that with my son, nieces and nephews.

I am a person who loves to sit and think which drives me to write, I am a true romantic, especially in the songs I write.  I like to write things people can relate to.  I think we all go through similar situations but it is nice to know you aren't the only one.

I fell in love with Luther in the early 80’s.  His background harmony arrangements blew me a way.  I guess you could say I get HIGH ON HARMONY.  I love singing in front of people because I love to feel the response that I get when sharing my talent.  I know it is a blessing, for I can touch people with a song. A feeling that can't be replaced.  I love both small and large arenas but the weird thing is I don’t like crowds of any kind when I am not performing.  I am more comfortable when I am on stage and after I sing the first note.  I am in my world and only I can invite the audience in.

I sang solo for years but then decided that I missed background harmony.  I got a couple of girls together and formed KLASSE, meaning classy. I enjoy singing with Johnita and Gwen. It is nice to share the gift of music with people who feel the same way you do.  We are dedicated to music. We are not just a group, we are a family and we enjoy each other outside of our music.

I love that I have a fan base who appreciates my music and support me and Klasse’.  Without fans to support me and Klasse’, there would be no Kimmy & Klasse’.

God, Family, Close friends and Music are the most important things in my life.  I cherish them all and I thank God that he has given me such a gift to share with anyone who wants to listen and enjoy my music.

I guess you can say – “I got the music in me (smile)”
