Today we’d like to introduce you to K’Lecor.
Hi K’Lecor, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
A native of Chicago now residing in Houston, I have been performing in front of audiences since the age of five. My first performance took place in church singing. I believe I can fly. From the age of nine through fourteen, I attended a performing and fine arts school in Chicago called The Choir Academy, where we traveled all over the United States, Canada, and Japan. Throughout my childhood all the way through to a young adult, I studied voice with the prestigious Rev. Lena McLin, who is the former teacher of Aaliyah, R. Kelly, Jennifer Hudson, and more. She is a big inspiration to me and the reason why I continue to pursue music. Another reason why I am continuing to pursue music is for my mentor George Cooper. He first started out as my piano teacher and coach. He’s giving me opportunities to open up for Lalah Hathaway and Roy Ayers and the Chicago Summer Peace Jam.
We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I wish it was smooth, but unfortunately, it was not. I sing all different genres of music from opera, classical, jazz, pop, and r&b. The biggest struggle for me is dealing with racism and sexism in this music industry. This has been going on since I was a child. I have been critically judged for my hairstyles, from what I wear, to my weight all the way down to my skin complexion. This continues to happen even today. I was told what’s worth having is never easy. I always knew that these challenges would occur, but I continue to keep pushing forward and achieving all of my goals and dreams.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
K’Lecor is an emerging pop & r&b artist trying to break into the pop and r&b charts. Her credits include touring in Japan, performing on the Oprah Winfrey Show, performing with Donnie McClurkin, twister, performing for Randy Jackson, and opening for Lalah Hathaway and Roy Ayers.
She received a Bachelor of Music in Music Business and a Bachelor of Arts in Voice Performance with a minor in Business Administration from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She received her Master of Music from Georgia State University. In 2020, K’Lecor was placed on the Official Ballot for the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards by The Recording Academy for Record Of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her single ‘Surrender.’
I am most proud of who I’ve become as a woman, wife, daughter, friend, musician, and entrepreneur. I don’t let anything or anyone get in the way of what I want. The power of healing and forgiveness has saved me. It has also taught me about patience and contentment. This is what sets me apart from many other artist. I stay true to myself, and I know exactly who I am.
Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
My music is available on all digital outlets. I have a new EP called L’elu coming out in 2022.
