Kayla Jo, is another Australian beauty making her way in music. There is one thing about Australia it is teaming with great talent, and KJ is there with the best of them. This girl could sing the phone book, she has some fantastic vocals, amazing control, and great expression. She is another super star in the making, she can handle country,and pop as good as anyone on the radio.
From the sound that KJ has, it would seem that she has been singing for years, but she has only been singing for just three short years. This is what`s so amazing about her, for such a short time she has done a lot of great things, and many people have taken notice. KJ is eleven years old, and her journey began when she was eight. She is currently taking vocal lessons from South West Vocal Training with MR. Rex Harris, and also Faye Fiso who is a member of the Group Mahogany. She is also training for an up coming show at Catholic Schools Performing Arts Sydney. In 2009 she entered in her first Talent Quest at Wizard Of Oz Funland, and here she came in first in the ten and under group in the vocal section, she also came in first in the in the duo with her sister.
KJ says, that one of her highlights has been when she was asked to be a special guest singing solo at a midyear Dance Spectacular on behalf on of the dance studio where her singing lessons are held. It was a huge event and she performed Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” in July 2010 to an audience of over 500. Since this performance she has had the honor of being the guest solo artist for many events. She recently entered into a huge Talent Quest at the Northern Beaches, here she made it through to the grand finals where she competed against 27 other people up to seventeen years old. At this Talent Quest she received the Judges Choice which put her in the top five, and it was really overwhelming for her.
KJ is one that is unstoppable, the achevments she has made are increditable. At the Fifth Avenue Dance Festival Eisteddfod, she came in first place in three catagories, popular song, your song choice, duo, and second for vocal championship. Also at the Dance Blitz Eisteddfod, here she also came in first place in four catagories musical theater, vocal uptempo, ballad, duo, and she took first in the vocal championship, these are all just a small portion of the awards she has recieved, the number of them is huge.
KJ hopes to someday be in a singing group with her sisters or a solo artist, but she is not only looking at entertainment. She loves all animals and would also like to be a vet one day. When we talk about someone who likes animals she certainly does. Her mom said, that when she asked for a dog, that she wanted to go to the pound and pick one out that needed help, like a three legged dog. Her mom couldn`t fill that request after having numerous cats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and a lizard, but she finally did settle on a Japanese Spitz. KJ is not just someone who is a great vocalist, but has a kind heart, and people like her with a big heart will always be a success.
