Kim Burrell

The dynamic, instantly recognizable and captivating voice of Kim Burrell is undeniably one of the most powerful voices in music today. Her unrivaled instrument, impeccable musicianship and ability to tap into the human experience and emotion has made her a favorite across genre and within the musician community. Kim is one of the few artists to be revered in both the spiritual and secular worlds.

The Grammy-Award nominated and Stellar Award winning singer has collaborated with artists as diverse as Harry Connick Jr. and funk master George Clinton. In the middle, there's R. Kelly, Stevie Wonder and Gospel's First Lady, Shirley Caesar. Her soulful vocal runs have influenced a generation of mainstream recording artists ranging from Jazmine Sullivan to Justin Timberlake. Her burgeoning A-List Hollywood fan club includes Beyoncé Knowles, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Omarion, Jessica Simpson and Chaka Khan. It is no wonder why Ms. Burrell was invited by BET to return to another season of Sunday Best.

Ms. Burrell’s fans will rejoice with the release of her third Shanachie Entertainment recording THE LOVE ALBUM (released May 17, 2011), which celebrates God's love for each of us and His love that we share for one another.

For THE LOVE ALBUM Kim Burrell joins forces with a trio of producers, Executive Producer Krishnar Lewis, Asaph Ward and Cory Henry. Producer Asaph Ward, who produced Ms. Burrell’s 1998 Tommy Boy recording EVERLASTING LIFE, reunites with the singer. “It's always fun and enlightening to work with Asaph Ward,” shares Burrell. “

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
