Founder

Formerly known as Natalie Jackson, Kudisan Kai has moved from receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Voice (Performance) from Howard University, graduate training in Voice from the Eastman School of Music, to winning a Downbeat Magazine Best Jazz Vocalist Award, to touring with Natalie Cole, Anita Baker, Jeffrey Osborne, David Foster and Friends, Elton John, and Chaka Khan, to working in films including Columbia Pictures Ali, Hollywood Pictures Just Visiting, Disney’s Dinosaurs, and Rio II, to live performances with Sting, Beck, and others. Currently, I am continuing my solo career, performing my latest release, Set It Off, and am singing under the moniker “KIVA”, several house/dance music remixes including DJ Rob Moore’s cover of Loverboy’s Turn Me Lose and a Headrocka Productions dance music video “No Time For That” by Traig, as the featured singer. Also, I host my own podcast entitled, Backstories On Kai-Fi and am the author of Memoirs Of A Back Up Diva, from which my prologue was published in the 9 March 2017 edition of Huffington Post.
