It's hard being a starving artist. the journey is real! Thank you forever !
Kokoleigh is a motivational singer with a dynamic range and a powerful voice. Her voice can shake the walls of buildings and dive deep into your soul with her upbeat tempos and powerfully positive messages. Her sound is a mashup of pop, soul, RnB, and just a little sprinkle of RnB alternative. She gets her inspiration from musical greats like Anita Baker, Muni Long, Jazmine Sullivan, and the late great Whitney Houston to name a few. She even notes a love of K Michelle and Billie Eilish's songwriting styles.
As a young kid, she had a love for poetry. Her words were so gifted that she won a poetry contest in second grade and that was the spark that led her to songwriting. Instead of writing in a diary, she writes music to express her emotions and feelings. At age 13, she started singing in the adult choir at her church which further developed her love of the craft. She has performed at numerous community events, for a year with her local jazz band called Different Perspectives, and in several musicals put on by the Hurrah Players. Kokoleigh wants to inspire others with her talents while also providing a type of self-love therapeutic journey for herself.
Kokoleigh describes herself as hard of hearing an ode to her handicap of suffering from generic hearing loss, high frequency, and tinnitus in both of her ears. These ailments caused her to take a break from singing in 2019, but now she is back and in full effect. She is a powerhouse and one of the best voices coming out of Chesapeake, Virginia. One of her mottos is for everyone to be their “Number One” self and to march to the beat of their own drum. She is certainly taking her own advice by not letting her hearing loss stop her or her talents.
Kokoleigh has been in the studio heavily lately. Her hit song To The Sky was released on April 23, 2022, the same day she performed it live on the 420ish Festival stage in Portsmouth, Virginia. She has a lot of dope things to release for the remainder of 2022. Stay tuned for more music and visuals. You can check out her music on all platforms and follow her on social media to stay updated on all things Kokoleigh.
Again, Thank you!
