Kimberly Richard’s Music Career
Kimberly revealed that she had an interest in music from an early age and was a backing vocalist for some ladies from her church who were recording artists.
“I’ve always been a backing vocalist as I sang with some ladies at my church who were recording artists.
I’d help them out with backing vocals at the studio but never ventured into my own music. I can safely say that the song that I did with Holy was my first song.
However, I started singing when I was really young from primary school and never really thought that one day, I’d branch out and be an independent artist which I’m considering.
I hope that with time, I’m going to find myself and start recording music consistently.”
