Kayla has always been inspired by music. Gladys Knight is a family friend and mentor to Kayla and has been someone to give her inspiration to gain a love and appreciation of music.
Although Kayla loved music, it wasn’t until she started performing at local Karaoke events that she discovered her true calling. "I've always enjoyed performing in front of people because of the adrenaline rush and competition." She is no stranger to the public eye and a natural at being in the spotlight. In addition to a successful modeling career, she was a cheerleader while attending HBCU Elizabeth City State University. It was there that she earned a Bachelor's degree in Accounting.
She is the first in her family to also earn a college degree. According to Kayla, "I felt like it was very important for me to earn my college degree to start a new tradition for my family." "Accounting was my major choice due to the fact that I was good with numbers and I wanted to be able to count my money!" She understands the importance of a college education and she hopes to be an inspiration to all young girls who come behind her. Having this college degree has prepared her to handle business while perfecting her craft.
Kayla's 1st Single "Gahh Damn" is set to be released on Jan 1, 2022 and is bound to be a Club Anthem. Her "untitled" album is scheduled to drop by the spring this year with a collection of up-tempo and slow songs to cater to her dynamic fanbase.

Kayla has so much to offer and share with the world and is looking forward to some exciting partnerships and business ventures, including launching her beauty and skincare line in the near future.
