From humble beginnings singing in the church, to having the attention and eyes of her homeland as she represented her country, the one with the powerful voice, known as Kimanda Cunningham, wins over her audience whenever she performs.
Born in St. Catherine, Portmore, Jamaica, Kimanda remembers singing from a very small age, first for an audience of her family, then for an audience of her church.
Competing on the show Digicel Rising Stars (the equivalent to American Idol), Kimanda received national attention as she competed against thousands of her fellow countrymen for the opportunity to perform, and earn the show’s coveted top prize. Finishing 6th, Kimanda, as well as her fans were pleased with the results.
Some of Kimanda’s idols include Anita Baker whom she says inspires her lyrical content, Michael Jackson who inspires her performance content, and Whitney Houston who inspired her to share the power in her voice every time she takes the stage.
“Singing is like my heart and without the heart to pump blood through the body, there would be no life. It’s a precious gift given to me by God, and I will always share it with the world. Because of this gift, I have a relationship with the audience every time I perform. They want my energy, and I want their attention. We work well together!”
Using Reggae, Dancehall and R&B as her musical launch pad, Jamaica’s tough music industry co-signs on Kimanda’s talent as she has worked with greats such as Mafia McKoy (Yengeh, Dark Cloud, Full Size Riddims), award winning artist Busy Signal (Excellence in Music Awards, Youth View Awards and Reggae Music Achievement Awards), and veteran producer DJ Karim (Sean Paul, Elephant Man, Noreaga).
2011 marks the beginning of Kimanda’s career, and proof that she is the little lady with the Powerful voice.
