Performer Info

Keyshia Cole: Keyshia Cole broke onto the music scene in 2005 with her debut album, The Way It Is, filling a void in the world of Hip-Hop Soul. She has released a total of four albums, starred in her own reality series, and has garnered the reputation for being one of the hottest live acts in pop music. Keyshia Cole is a R&B storyteller sensation and her concerts are a memorable experience. Don't miss a Keyshia Cole tour date when she visits a venue near you.

Keyshia Cole crafted her real lyrics on the streets of Oakland, California. She moved to LA when she was a teenager and scored a recording contract in 2004. She released her debut album, The Way It Is, in 2005 and staying true to the album's title, she connected with audiences through her tales of love, heartbreak, and betrayal. The album went on to sell 1.5 million copies and Cole embarked on the Sweatsuit Tour with Nelly to promote her debut. Cole returned in 2007 with the smash single "Let It Go", featuring Missy Elliot and Lil' Kim. The album, Just Like You, was massively successful and earned her two Grammy nominations the following year. Cole teamed up with Lil Wayne on the I Am Music Tour, which holds the record as the top-grossing hip-hop tour.

Between 2006 and 2008, Cole starred in the BET's hit reality show, Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is. The season finale was watched by nearly three million people and became the highest rated telecast in the history of BET. Cole recently released Calling All Hearts, and embarked on the Love Letter Tour, with R. Kelly throughout 2011. Keyshia Cole is Hip-Hop Soul perfection. Stay on top of Keyshia Cole tour dates and her updated concert schedule.

Chrisette Michele: Surrounded by music since she was a small child, twenty-four year old singer, songwriter and composer Chrisette Michele has been blessed with an old soul and this Long Island bred songwriter and vocalist has a deep appreciation for the harmonic foundations that includes gospel and jazz. “I did my first solo when I was four years old,” Chrisette remembers.

Currently putting the finishing touches on her soulful debut album, an artistic exploration that fuses Chrisette’s diverse musical interest into a wonderland, the young artist couldn’t be more pleased. “I realize that I’m new to the music world, but I’ve been preparing for this moment for long time.”
