Vocalist/Songwriter Kenya delivers smooth soulful vocals. Her jazz influence creates music that embodies a contemporary groove and has charted on the US R&B Billboard Chart as well as the Top 10 UK Soul Chart and other European radio charts. Inspired by American singer/songwriters such as Stevie Wonder & Lalah Hathaway and international groups like Incognito & Brand New Heavies, Kenya admits that "Music = air"...without it, she simply doesn't breathe.

And, so...you're either loving Esperanza's new album or completely not feeling it. What am I? LOOOOOVE it! Probably one of the most genius albums made for 2016, but ya gotta dig into it ferociously to get there (which I love to do!). This is a moment during her concert at #NorthSeaJazzFestival performing one of my fav songs #NobleNobles from her new album #emilysdevolution Plus...I got to meet her and chat it up 😁 #winning #brilliant
Okay, okay, OKAY!! I'm having #NorthSeaJazzFestival withdrawal!!! A week ago I witnessed the most tremendous music festival I've EVER attended...woo-EEEE!!!! And so...I'm about to flood the feed with pics and vids I didn't get a chance to share yet but that are sooo worthy of sharing! 1...2...3....#letsGO!
Two weeks ago I boarded a plane heading to France....my trip to Paris was exquisite...the people, culture, food, architecture, and the love...everything was incredibly energetic & simply splendid! Hard to imagine their country is facing yet another senseless tragic incident. Our world...my oh my...we're all being called for a healing indeed. I'm sending prayers, love, light and healing. I hope to return to Paris soon...it oozes beauty and intimacy. Despite it all, there is still incredible love felt in its atmosphere.❤️ #France #Nice #light #love #prayers
