Robbi Hall Kumalo is an artist with an incredible voice with tons of charisma and charm to win over any audience. Robbi started in the music business singing with a host of legendary artists including Aretha Franklin, Eileen Ivers, Arif Mardin, Jewel, Diana Ross, Jimmy Owens, Ashford & Simpson, Edie Brickell, Chieli Minucci, Gino Sitson, Bakithi Kumalo, John Hiatt, Chaka Khan, Rod Stewart, Mary J. Blige, and Harry Belafonte among many others. Bringing to the stage a level of excitement, Robbi gives to her audiences freely and unselfishly. Her band members are versatile and extraordinary players, who have performed with many music legends themselves. Robbi's personable demeanor is the essence of her show; first going deep into her own zone then pouring it all out in song. Robbi's larger than life stage presence and enticingly beautiful voice have given her the opportunity to perform in many settings, always with great success.
MUSIC MAKES ME HAPPY's upbeat tempo seems to make Robbi K
and Friends' voices happy, too. And in case there's any confusion over her mood, listen to track 9, titled: Happy! Happy! Happy! Happy! Happy. This is Robbi's third CD, featuring guests like Riverdance fiddler Eileen Ivers and Jon Bowzer Bauman of Sha Na Na. The CD's lyrics are simple enough for toddlers to sing along to — with lines like Sometimes, my friends make me mad! — but are modern enough to draw them in (it's my bling, bling). The vocals aren't polished (especially on I Love My Teacher), but that's part of their charm; they range from kids singing to Robbi K's strong, clear voice
