Kelis Rogers is an artist with her own style; her voice has a different sound on each song. Kelis was born on August 21, 1980 in Harlem, New York, she was raised by her Puerto Rican-Chinese mother, a fashion designer,and her African American father was a Pentecostal Minister and jazz musician. Kelis started off singing in the church choir and the Girls Choir of Harlem. Kelis attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Arts and Performing Arts in Manhattan, while there she played the saxophone, violin and piano. When she graduated with the help of the Neptunes production team she formed a band and landed a record deal. Kelis’s debut “Kaleidoscope” was released in 1999 this album sold 249,000 copies to date, her single “Caught Out There“, peaked to Number 9 on the Bill Board Hot R&B chart, I like that song it made me feel like saying that sometimes.. Her third album hit single “Milkshake” from the “Tasty” album was nominated for a Grammy in 2004 that was a popular song it was catchy I remember singing it. Kelis album “Flesh Tone” in my opinion is not so good but it has two songs I like are.  “Acapella” and “4th Of July.” This album is high energy, I guess if you’re a Kelis Rogers fame you might like it. Check Kelis out on Streetwise Radio.
