What happens when you combine the influences of Eva Cassidy, Sade and Rosa Passos with a spiritual twist? The pure anointed voice of Kia Walker. Kia is a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Her music is a blend of soothing Jazz melodies with a twist of soul. Kia Walker has a sincere desire to serve others and inspire others along life's journey with her passion for ministry, performance, education and artist development. As she strives to reach her full potential in God both spiritually and musically, she desires others to reach their full potential. Kia believes that people are at their very best when they are busy fulfilling their divine, God-given purpose. This is the best use of a human life and it is the best way to glorify God. Kia has released a full length CD of Jazz hymns and spiritual songs entitled TROUBADOUR. Like a troubadour, it is Kia's desire to travel the world singing and playing guitar. It is her desire to speak about the challenges and triumphs of life and to proclaim the goodness of God throughout the nation and the world. Since it's inception, Jazz has been an organic and spiritual music that encourages improvisation within the context of structure. Much of daily life can seem improvised and ad libbed. It is the perfect genre in which to testify about life and it is the perfect music to glorify our Lord and Savior. Jazz truly is America's classical music. Kia understands that life is precious. She respects each person as a special and unique individual worthy of love and support. Everyone longs to be loved, accepted, appreciated and understood. Every human being is on a path of self-learning, self-discovery, and enlightenment. Some are further along on this personal journey than others, but Kia believes it is a journey common to every man. Everyone must struggle to find the way to truth and purpose. Kia Walker considers herself blessed to be surrounded by people who have helped her on life's journey and have been instrumental in helping her fulfill the purpose God has for her life.
