ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Kimberly has performed at sold out shows across the US (New York, DC, Atlanta, Seattle, Virigina) and even abroad in Japan and Africa. Her most amazing milestone has been completing her debut album “the Yellow Brick Journey”, which was self-funded and released independently. After releasing the project, KimberlyNichole caught the attention of two legendary songwriters/performers, Ashford & Simpson, who impressed with her artistry, took her under their wing as mentors. Through them, she met Vogue Magazine’s ubiquitous Andre Leon Talley, who featured her in his column in the December 2010 issue. Few have had that honor.
